Linear Algebra

Linear algebra uses the tools and methods of vector and matrix operations to determine the properties of linear systems. Wolfram|Alpha's rigorous computational knowledge of topics such as vectors, vector spaces and matrix theory is a great resource for calculating and exploring the properties of vectors and matrices, the linear independence of vectors and the vector spaces underlying sets of vectors and matrices.
