In Lecture 12, the focus is on real-world applications of linear algebra, specifically on graphs, networks, and incidence matrices. The discussion centers around a small example graph with four nodes and five edges, and how to create the incidence matrix associated with it. The lesson delves into questions about the null space and rank of the matrix, and also explores the fundamental equation of A transpose Y equals zero. Overall, the lesson provides valuable insights into how linear algebra can be applied to real-world problems.
