Linear Algebra Lecture Notes

This is the first draft of my linear algebra lecture notes. It will have to go through one or two more iterations before it becomes respectable. However I post it here, mainly for my students and for anyone else interested.

I am planning to use these notes during mu summer course. There are many differences from the usual way I handled the course before,
