László Tisza was Professor of Physics Emeritus at MIT, where he began teaching in 1941. This online publication is a reproduction the original lecture notes for the course “Applied Geometric Algebra” taught by Professor Tisza in the Spring of 1976. Over the last 100 years, the mathematical tools employed by physicists have expanded considerably, from differential calculus, vector algebra and geometry, to advanced linear algebra, tensors, Hilbert space, spinors, Group theory and many others. These sophisticated tools provide powerful machinery for describing the physical world, however, their physical interpretation is often not intuitive. These course notes represent Prof. Tisza’s attempt at bringing conceptual clarity and unity to the application and interpretation of these advanced mathematical tools. In particular, there is an emphasis on the unifying role that Group theory plays in classical, relativistic, and quantum physics. Prof. Tisza revisits many elementary problems with an advanced treatment in order to help develop the geometrical intuition for the algebraic machinery that may carry over to more advanced problems. The lecture notes came to MIT OpenCourseWare by way of Samuel Gasster, ‘77 (Course 18), who had taken the course and kept a copy of the lecture notes for his own reference. He dedicated dozens of hours of his own time to convert the typewritten notes into LaTeX files and then publication-ready PDFs. You can read about his motivation for wanting to see these notes published in his Preface. Professor Tisza kindly gave his permission to make these notes available on MIT OpenCourseWare.

Calculus Revisited is a series of videos and related resources that covers the materials normally found in freshman- and sophomore-level introductory mathematics courses. Complex Variables, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra is the third course in the series, consisting of 20 Videos, 3 Study Guides, and a set of Supplementary Notes. Students should have mastered the first two courses in the series (Single Variable Calculus and Multivariable Calculus) before taking this course. The series was first released in 1972, but equally valuable today for students who are learning these topics for the first time. About the Instructor Herb Gross has taught math as senior lecturer at MIT and was the founding math department chair at Bunker Hill Community College. He is the developer of the Mathematics As A Second Language website, providing arithmetic and algebra materials to elementary and middle school teachers. Acknowledgements Funding for this resource was provided by the Gabriella and Paul Rosenbaum Foundation.

The course addresses dynamic systems, i.e., systems that evolve with time. Typically these systems have inputs and outputs; it is of interest to understand how the input affects the output (or, vice-versa, what inputs should be given to generate a desired output). In particular, we will concentrate on systems that can be modeled by Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), and that satisfy certain linearity and time-invariance conditions. We will analyze the response of these systems to inputs and initial conditions. It is of particular interest to analyze systems obtained as interconnections (e.g., feedback) of two or more other systems. We will learn how to design (control) systems that ensure desirable properties (e.g., stability, performance) of the interconnection with a given dynamic system.

Elements of Abstract and Linear Algebra is a book written by Dr. Edwin Connell, a professor emeritus in the math department at the University of Miami. Published in December 2001, it can be obtained free of charge from this Web site. Dr. Connell even encourages printing and distributing the book as an inexpensive resource for college students. The text is divided into sections that can be downloaded separately or as a whole. There are many theorems, proofs, and exercises throughout the book that illustrate the underlying concepts. The book is offered in four formats; so, most computers should be able to view it with no problems.

Conçu pour un cours de première année universitaire, ce manuel en algèbre linéaire adopte une approche peu commune : il présente les espaces vectoriels dès le début et traite des systèmes linéaires qu’après une introduction approfondie aux espaces vectoriels. Cette approche est fondée sur l’expérience des auteurs ayant observé au cours des 25 dernières années que les étudiantes et étudiants ont souvent besoin davantage de temps pour maîtriser les espaces vectoriels alors que les manuels traditionnels relèguent plutôt le sujet à la fin du cours. De cette façon, ces nouvelles notions au coeur de l’algèbre linéaire qui sont souvent considérées comme abstraites et difficiles dans un cours d’introduction peuvent ensuite être utilisées dans le reste du cours ainsi que différents contextes.

This text, originally by K. Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team as a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra. All major topics of linear algebra are available in detail, as well as proofs of important theorems. In addition, connections to topics covered in advanced courses are introduced. The text is designed in a modular fashion to maximize flexibility and facilitate adaptation to a given course outline and student profile. Each chapter begins with a list of student learning outcomes, and examples and diagrams are given throughout the text to reinforce ideas and provide guidance on how to approach various problems. Suggested exercises are included at the end of each section, with selected answers at the end of the text. Lyryx develops and supports open texts, with editorial services to adapt the text for each particular course. In addition, Lyryx provides content-specific formative online assessment, a wide variety of supplements, and in-house support available 7 days/week for both students and instructors.
