Linear algebra is the foundation for many sophisticated mathematical and computational methods. In SIT292 students will learn the basics of linear algebra, and solve systems of linear equations. This unit extends students ability apply mathematical formulae and to operate with complex mathematical objects. SIT292 introduces students to vector spaces, matrix theory, systems of linear equations and methods for solving them, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and their application to similarity of diagonal matrices. The techniques that students learn from this unit will enable them with the analysis of complex data and ensuring its reliability in studies of cryptography.
