Contents: Math 403/503 is intended to be a second course in linear algebra, where an abstract approach emphasizing the role of linear transformations is preferred to a more computational approach based on properties of matrices. From Course Description in the Department’s site:

Concepts of linear algebra from a theoretical perspective. Topics include vector spaces and linear maps, dual vector spaces and quotient spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization, inner product spaces, adjoint transformations, orthogonal and unitary transformations, Jordan normal form.

Grading: Based on homework. No late homework is allowed. Collaboration is encouraged, although you must turn in your own version of the solutions, and give credit to books/websites/… you consulted and people you talked/emailed/… to.
