A Concise Introduction to Linear Algebra by Géza Schay

By Géza Schay

development at the author's previous edition at the topic (Introduction to Linear Algebra, Jones & Bartlett, 1996), this e-book 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 often falls in accordance with the material advised by the Linear Algebra Curriculum research Group, it notably deviates in providing an early emphasis at the geometric foundations of linear algebra. this provides scholars a extra intuitive realizing of the topic and permits an easier seize of extra summary recommendations lined later within the path. the point of interest all through is rooted within the mathematical fundamentals, but the textual content also investigates a couple of fascinating functions, together with a piece on computer graphics, a bankruptcy on numerical tools, and plenty of workouts and examples utilizing MATLAB. in the meantime, many visuals and difficulties (a whole strategies handbook is obtainable to teachers) are integrated to reinforce and make stronger realizing during the publication. short but detailed and rigorous, this work is a perfect selection for a one-semester path in linear algebra designated basically at math or physics majors. It is a valuable tool for any professor who teaches the subject.
