The Imperial/Coursera Linear Algebra Certificate

I undertook this in the hope that a little Linear Algebra (and Vector Calculus, the next module) would assist in understanding papers in the area. The course itself progressed from elementary Vector algebra through to calculating Eigenvalues/vectors. Found it to be quite focused and sometimes moving at a fast pace. Will need to revisit again in future.

Definitely recommended for a crash but non trivial course, and possibly as a foundation to further study.

It did motivate me to buy a Linear Algebra text (not Strang!) but David Lay’s Linear Algebra and its Applications. At some stage will work my way through it after taking this course again as a refresher and taking notes this time around.
