My Intro to LA course has visited the ideas of polar decomposition and Jordan forms, but not gone into them in depth. I wouldn't say I understood them, but I'm aware of them, and could possibly solve some basic exercises involving them if all I had to do was apply formulas.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is: should an undergraduate level Intro to LA course (in the context of supporting an overall Electrical Engineering degree) go deeper into Polar and Jordan Decomposition? Should I look for some outside resources to fill out my understanding in these areas, or leave it til it becomes clearer whether I'll need it?
