## LECTURE NOTES

CAUTION: Except for the syllabus above,
all the material provided on this web page is course
material of one professor (Zweck). The exam however will be written by
a committee of professors!

Here are lecture notes from the last time I taught Math 430.
Apologies for my poor handwriting, lines cut off at ends of pages by scanner,
and any mistakes.

These notes are mostly based on the book of Meyer.
They are provided to give students more of an idea of the
sort of material that will be covered on the qualifying exam.

Note that two topics in the qualifying exam syllabus
are not covered in these notes: Generalized
Inverses (i.e., Moore-Penrose pseudoinverse) and the Jordan
Canonical Form.
Also, material from Lecture 14 below is not included in
the qualifying exam syllabus.

Lecture 1: Overview

Lecture 2: Matrix Algebra

Lecture 3: Vector Spaces and Subspaces; Range and Nullspace

Lecture 4: Linear Independence, basis, dimension; Rank and Nullity Theorem

Lecture 5: Least Squares

Lecture 6: Linear Transformations; Change of basis, similarity

Lecture 7: Orthogonality, Orthonormal basis, Gram-Schmidt

Lecture 8: Orthogonal and Unitary Matrices

Lecture 9: Complementary Subspaces; Orthogonal decomposition

Lecture 10A: Block Gauss-Jordan Elimination, Schur Complements

Lecture 10B: Determinants

Lecture 11: Eigensystems and Differential Equations

Lecture 12: Diagonalization

Lecture 13: Spectral Theorems for Normal and for Symmetric Matricies

Lecture 14: Functions of Diagonalizable Matrices; Applications to Systems
of ODEs

Lecture 15: Quadratic Forms and Positive Definite Matrices

Lecture 16: Nilpotent Matrices and Jordan Blocks

Lecture 17: Range-Nullspace Decomposition

Lecture 18: Jordan Canonical Form

## PAST EXAMS

Here are exams (some with solutions) I have given in Math 430.
Note that the material covered in these exams does not
exactly overlap with that to be covered on the Matrix Analysis
Qualifying exam. Moreover, the format, degree of difficulty,
and choice of topics of the Qualifying Exam will be somewhat different
to that exhibited in these past Math 430 exams.
