WildLinAlg17: Rank and Nullity of a Linear Transformation

This is a full hour lecture in which we step up to linear transformations with spaces of more than 3 dimensions, introduce the kernel and the image properties, and the corresponding dimension numbers called nullity and rank.Most of the lecture looks in detail at a particular transformation from four to three dimensional space. We discuss how to visualize four dimensions in a way that is consistent with our pictures of two and three dimensions.The main computations rest on our understanding of row reduction of a matrix.CONTENT SUMMARY: pg 1: @00:08 Lesson about nullity and rank of a linear transformation; kernel and image of linear transformation; general linear transformations; Example?
