About the course

Matrices are ubiquitous in many aspects of mathematics. They show up, for instance, when considering the local asymptotic stability of equilibria of systems of ordinary differential equations, the long term behaviour of Markov chains, the study of graphs and the discretization of reaction-diffusion equations.

Objectives of the course:
  1. explore the role of matrices in several fields of mathematics;
  2. study properties of these matrices;
  3. develop a toolbox to study some matrix properties computationally.
