Approved for public release; Distribution is unlimitedThis thesis is designed to act as an instructor's supplement for refresher matrix algebra courses at the Naval Postgraduate School (NPS). The need for a beginning matrix algebra supplement is driven by the unique circumstances of most NPS students. Most military students attend XPS several years after receiving their undergraduate degrees. This supplement, unlike most college textbooks, bridges the gap between the student's educational lay-off and the rigors of mathematically oriented degrees such as applied math, operations research and engineering. By reviewing the fundamental concepts of vectors and matrices, and performing basic operations with them, the student quickly develops the background needed in NPS's demanding curriculums. This supplement focuses on matrix and vector operations, linear transformations, systems of linear equations, and computational techniques for solving systems of linear equations. The goal is to enhance current matrix algebra textbooks and help the beginning student build a foundation for higher level engineering and mathematics based courses.http://www.archive.org/details/matrixalgebra00delaLieutenant, United States Nav
