We begin by describing some geometrical concepts. This approach may seem strange in a book on algebra, but the influence of geometry is fundamental to our subject, since the underlying geometrical ideas provide motivation, examples, and applications for the algebraic constructions. In fact, the adjective linear in this book’s title means pertaining to lines (which in mathematics usually mean straight lines), and indicates the geometric origins of linear algebra. A Concise Introduction to Linear Algebra. At the end of Section . we mentioned that various sets of functions have the same kind of structure as the Euclidean vector spaces we had studied, and are also called vector spaces.

This book offers a refreshingly concise, manageable introduction to linear algebra: Whereas most treatments of the subject give an exhaustive survey supplemented with applications, this book presents a carefully selected array of the most essential topics that can be thoroughly covered in a single semester. The exposition generally falls in line with the material recommended by the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, but notably deviates in providing an early emphasis on the geometric foundations of linear algebra

This focused introduction to linear algebra is a refreshingly concise, semester-length text covering a judiciously chosen selection of the most essential topics in the field, including the geometric fundamentals so important for an intuitive understanding.

Geza Schay, "Introduction to Linear Algebra" Jones & Bartlett Publishers ISBN:0867204982 303 pages Djvu 6,3 M This new offering will provide linear algebra instructors with a long-desired briefer book for a one-semester course. The author has taken care to include a selection of interesting applications that are feasible to cover in a semester. Lengthy descriptions of all possible applications are avoided to make this book shorter than others on the market. At the same time, students will appreciate the careful development of the geometric underpinnings of linear algebra.

Building on the author's previous edition on the subject (Introduction to Linear Algebra, Jones & Bartlett, 1996), this book offers a refreshingly concise text suitable for a standard course in linear algebra, presenting a carefully selected array of essential topics that can be thoroughly covered in a single semester. Although the exposition generally falls in line with the material recommended by the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, it notably deviates in providing an early emphasis on the geometric foundations of linear algebra. This gives students a more intuitive understanding of the subject and enables an easier grasp of more abstract concepts covered later in the course.

The focus throughout is rooted in the mathematical fundamentals, but the text also investigates a number of interesting applications, including a section on computer graphics, a chapter on numerical methods, and many exercises and examples using MATLAB. Meanwhile, many visuals and problems (a complete solutions manual is available to instructors) are included to enhance and reinforce understanding throughout the book.

Brief yet precise and rigorous, this work is an ideal choice for a one-semester course in linear algebra targeted primarily at math or physics majors. It is a valuable tool for any professor who teaches the subject.
