This is a linear algebra refresher appendix (Appendix E) to accompany the book "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control." It covers most of the linear algebra concepts used in the book, and a few more, and includes a glossary of terms and a few examples of how the linear algebra concepts are used (particularly in feedback control).

This succinct appendix was written for students who have studied some of these concepts in linear algebra but are rusty and need a little review.
