Projections onto Subspaces and Least Squares projection matrix -- Lecture 15. Learn what a projection is in Linear Algebra and how to compute a projection.

- Least Squares Java Applet - Java applet to play around with to investigate Least Squares lines / equations.
- Least Squares Java Applet 2 - Another interactive Least Squares java applet to play around with.

- What does it mean to project a vector onto another vector?
- How do you compute a projection matrix?
- Why do you project a vector or matrix?

This lesson explains what a projection is and how to find the projection vector. A very important lesson in the grand scheme of Linear Algebra, and very well-taught.
