Tasting Linear Algebra
Linear algebra and calculus are the languages of quantum mechanics. In this section, we give you what the rough idea of linear algebra is like to motivate you to study linear algebra and quantum mechanics in our later sections on them. Some high school students study a little bit of matrices, but I don¡¯t think that they can appreciate the real value of matrices until they learn linear algebra, usually in the second semester of their college freshman year. ¡°Matrices and Linear Algebra¡± is written so that readers can appreciate the real value of matrices.
