Linear algebra is not only related with matrices and matrix operations which define the algebraic matrix theory, but also with linear operators which relate vectors spaces. While matrices have a more algebraic point of view to these algebras, operators and vectors spaces have a more geometric interpretation. It happens that linear operators (those which fulfils superposition) are indeed expressed in matrix form which leads to misinterpretation and confusion between these two mathematical elements.
