# Linear Algebra
Primary references for this chapter are
{cite}`hoffman1971linear,artin2017algebra,aliprantis1998principles`.
Our approach is a mix of traditional algebraic view point of
vector spaces and the analytical view point as our goal is
to quickly review the relevant material as a build-up
towards later chapters.
Chapter objectives:
- Algebraic structures: groups, rings, fields
- Vector spaces
- Span
- Linear independence
- Basis
- Coordinate representation
- Subspaces
- Linear transformation
- Null space / Kernel
- Range / Image
- Bracket operator
- Matrix representations
- Vector space of linear operators
- Norm
- Normed spaces
- Metric induced by norm
- Inner product
- Inner product spaces
- Norm induced by inner product
