Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerned with the study of vectors, vector spaces (also called linear spaces), linear transformations, and systems
of linear equations. Vector spaces are a central theme in modern mathematics.
Thus, linear algebra is widely used in both abstract algebra and functional analysis.
Linear algebra also has a concrete representation in analytic geometry and it is
generalized in operator theory. It has extensive applications in the natural sciences
and the social sciences, since nonlinear models can often be approximated by a linear model.
