Building on the content of "Linear Algebra I", the instructor will explain the fundamentals of vector spaces and linear mapping, eigenvalues and diagonalization, and the inner product of vector spaces.
The aim of this course is to explain the theory of vector spaces which will be important for science and engineering.
This course follows "Linear Algebra I: Exercise". Students will acquire the fundamentals of linear algebra. They will also deepen and further develop their understanding of content learned in "Linear Algebra I".
Vector space, basis, linear transformation, eigenvalue, diagonalization

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.

Introduction to Linear Algebra, Kazuo Matsusaka, Iwanami shoten
Based on overall evaluation on the results of quizzes, reports, mid-term and final examinations. Details will be announced in class.
Students are supposed to have completed Linear Algebra I / Recitation (LAS.M102).
Students are recommended to take Linear Algebra Recitation II (LAS.M108) at the same time.
Many of the topics in this course may seem quite abstract to the beginning student. As a matter of course, attendance at every lecture is recommended.
