By Géza Schay

development at the author's previous edition at the topic (Introduction to Linear Algebra, Jones & Bartlett, 1996), this booklet deals a refreshingly concise text suitable for the standard path in linear algebra, presenting a carefully selected array of essential topics that may be completely lined in one semester. Although the exposition in most cases falls based on the material instructed by the Linear Algebra Curriculum examine Group, it notably deviates in providing an early emphasis at the geometric foundations of linear algebra. this offers scholars a extra intuitive knowing of the topic and allows an easier seize of extra summary recommendations lined later within the path. the focal point all through is rooted within the mathematical fundamentals, but the textual content also investigates a couple of fascinating purposes, together with a bit on computer graphics, a bankruptcy on numerical tools, and plenty of routines and examples utilizing MATLAB. in the meantime, many visuals and difficulties (a entire options handbook is accessible to teachers) are incorporated to reinforce and toughen figuring out through the e-book. short but certain and rigorous, this work is a perfect selection for a one-semester direction in linear algebra designated essentially at math or physics majors. It is a valuable tool for any professor who teaches the subject.
