The file named

**has three parts:**

*SUPPLEMENTS***Part I:**We discuss m x n systems; row echelon forms; row, column and null spaces; rank and nullity; linear independence and basis vectors; linear transformations and their representations; etc.

**Part II**: We introduce numerical methods of linear algebra, where partial pivoting; LU- factorization; interpolation and numerical methods of finding solutions are among the interesting topics discussed.

**Part III**: We give an interesting application of linear algebra from chemistry and chemical engineering, where we show how to find a set of independent chemical reactions and introduce the stoichiometric matrix.

The file named

**has some matlab codes, where after a review of the basic commands, we continue with matlab applications of the numerical methods of linear algebra. These codes were used in the lab section of a one semester sophomore math course for engineers that met four hours a week. Students had little or no prior experience with matlab.**
