Outline of Topics to be Covered:
 Linear Algebra:
Review of Eigenvalues and eigenvectors, Spectral theorem for normal operators, Positive matrics, Structure of orthogonal matrices, Singular value decomposition, Best approximation, Fundamental theorem of algebra  Group Theory:
Equivalences and Partitions, Basic definitions and examples of groups and homomorphisms, including cyclic, dihedral, permutation and alternating groups, and matrix groups. Subgroups, and the induced equivalence relations, quotient groups. Group actions, the orbit‐stabilizer formula, and class equation. Sylow's theorems, classification of groups of order 12, finitely generated abelian groups. Groups of units of a field, and groups of automorphisms arising from field extensions. Solvable groups.
