Linear algebra is one of the cornerstones of modern mathematics. Simple geometrical ideas, such as lines, planes, rules for vector addition and dot products arise in many places, including calculus, signal processing, mechanics, differential equations and numerical analysis. This subject is an introduction to the mathematics which allows these geometrical ideas to be applied in non-geometrical contexts. Using the key ideas of linear independence and spanning sets we develop the notion of a basis for a vector space. The fact that the space of functions is a vector space lies at the heart of Fourier approximation.
