XCME012 - Linear Algebra

Overview: Matrix computations/linear algebra are the backbone of data science algorithms. If your linear algebra is rusty, or if you are not familiar with critical concepts (including orthogonal decompositions and least squares) this workshop is for you. In the morning, we will cover basic ideas in linear algebra (matrix-vector manipulations, norms, subspaces, solution of matrix-vector systems). In the afternoon, we will discuss more advanced concepts including QR decompositions and the SVD.

The ICME offers summer workshops to students, partners, and the wider community (first come first served, in that order). These day-long workshop happen from August 14-18, 2017, from 9:00am to 4:45 pm.
