Some Basics from Linear Algebra

Below you will find the first draft of some notes I am making
which dicsuss relevant information from linear algebra.
I will continue to edit these notes periodically; if you find
typos please let me know. You may use facts contained in these
notes when writing up solutions to homework problems.
