Book Synopsis When Life is Linear by : Tim Chartier

Download or read book When Life is Linear written by Tim Chartier and published by The Mathematical Association of America. This book was released on 2015-01-07 with total page 151 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From simulating complex phenomenon on supercomputers to storing the coordinates needed in modern 3D printing, data is a huge and growing part of our world. A major tool to manipulate and study this data is linear algebra. When Life is Linear introduces concepts of matrix algebra with an emphasis on application, particularly in the fields of computer graphics and data mining. Readers will learn to make an image transparent, compress an image and rotate a 3D wireframe model. In data mining, readers will use linear algebra to read zip codes on envelopes and encrypt sensitive information. Chartier details methods behind web search, utilized by such companies as Google, and algorithms for sports ranking which have been applied to creating brackets for March Madness and predict outcomes in FIFA World Cup soccer. The book can serve as its own resource or to supplement a course on linear algebra.
