A Concise Introduction to 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.

Advanced Linear Algebra features a student-friendly approach to the theory of linear algebra. The author’s emphasis on vector spaces over general fields, with corresponding current applications, sets the book apart. He focuses on finite fields and complex numbers, and discusses matrix algebra over these fields. The text then proceeds to cover vector spaces in depth. Also discussed are standard topics in linear algebra including linear transformations, Jordan canonical form, inner product spaces, spectral theory, and, as supplementary topics, dual spaces, quotient spaces, and tensor products. Written in clear and concise language, the text sticks to the development of linear algebra without excessively addressing applications. A unique chapter on "How to Use Linear Algebra" is offered after the theory is presented. In addition, students are given pointers on how to start a research project. The proofs are clear and complete and the exercises are well designed. In addition, full solutions are included for almost all exercises.

The cornerstone of ELEMENTARY LINEAR ALGEBRA is the authors' clear, careful, and concise presentation of material--written so that students can fully understand how mathematics works. This program balances theory with examples, applications, and geometric intuition for a complete, step-by-step learning system. Featuring a new design that highlights the relevance of the mathematics and improves readability for students, the Seventh Edition also incorporates new conceptual Capstone exercises that reinforce multiple concepts in each section. Data and applications reflect current statistics and examples to engage students and demonstrate the link between theory and practice. Cengage Learning's Enhanced WebAssign, which allows you to create online homework assignments that draw from thousands of the text's end-of-chapter questions, is available with the text.

Praise for the First Edition ". . .recommended for the teacher and researcher as well as forgraduate students. In fact, [it] has a place on everymathematician's bookshelf." -American Mathematical Monthly Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition presents linearalgebra as the theory and practice of linear spaces and linear mapswith a unique focus on the analytical aspects as well as thenumerous applications of the subject. In addition to thoroughcoverage of linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, game theory,and numerical analysis, the Second Edition featuresstudent-friendly additions that enhance the book's accessibility,including expanded topical coverage in the early chapters,additional exercises, and solutions to selected problems. Beginning chapters are devoted to the abstract structure of finitedimensional vector spaces, and subsequent chapters addressconvexity and the duality theorem as well as describe the basics ofnormed linear spaces and linear maps between normed spaces. Further updates and revisions have been included to reflect themost up-to-date coverage of the topic, including: The QR algorithm for finding the eigenvalues of a self-adjointmatrix The Householder algorithm for turning self-adjoint matricesinto tridiagonal form The compactness of the unit ball as a criterion of finitedimensionality of a normed linear space Additionally, eight new appendices have been added and cover topicssuch as: the Fast Fourier Transform; the spectral radius theorem;the Lorentz group; the compactness criterion for finitedimensionality; the characterization of commentators; proof ofLiapunov's stability criterion; the construction of the JordanCanonical form of matrices; and Carl Pearcy's elegant proof ofHalmos' conjecture about the numerical range of matrices. Clear, concise, and superbly organized, Linear Algebra and ItsApplications, Second Edition serves as an excellent text foradvanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in linearalgebra. Its comprehensive treatment of the subject also makes itan ideal reference or self-study for industry professionals.

Linear Algebra and Linear Models comprises a concise and rigorous introduction to linear algebra required for statistics followed by the basic aspects of the theory of linear estimation and hypothesis testing. The emphasis is on the approach using generalized inverses. Topics such as the multivariate normal distribution and distribution of quadratic forms are included. For this third edition, the material has been reorganised to develop the linear algebra in the first six chapters, to serve as a first course on linear algebra that is especially suitable for students of statistics or for those looking for a matrix theoretic approach to the subject. Other key features include: coverage of topics such as rank additivity, inequalities for eigenvalues and singular values; a new chapter on linear mixed models; over seventy additional problems on rank: the matrix rank is an important and rich topic with connections to many aspects of linear algebra such as generalized inverses, idempotent matrices and partitioned matrices. This text is aimed primarily at advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate students taking courses in linear algebra, linear models, multivariate analysis and design of experiments. A wealth of exercises, complete with hints and solutions, help to consolidate understanding. Researchers in mathematics and statistics will also find the book a useful source of results and problems.

Rooted in a pedagogically successful problem-solving approach to linear algebra, the present work fills a gap in the literature that is sharply divided between elementary texts and books that are too advanced to appeal to a wide audience. It clearly develops the theoretical foundations of vector spaces, linear equations, matrix algebra, eigenvectors, and orthogonality, while simultaneously emphasizing applications and connections to fields such as biology, economics, computer graphics, electrical engineering, cryptography, and political science. Ideal as an introduction to linear algebra, the extensive exercises and well-chosen applications also make this text suitable for advanced courses at the junior or senior undergraduate level. Furthermore, it can serve as a colorful supplementary problem book, reference, or self-study manual for professional scientists and mathematicians. Complete with bibliography and index, "Essential Linear Algebra with Applications" is a natural bridge between pure and applied mathematics and the natural and social sciences, appropriate for any student or researcher who needs a strong footing in the theory, problem-solving, and model-building that are the subject’s hallmark.
