  • Elementary Linear Algebra : A Matrix Approach
    Elementary Linear Algebra : A Matrix Approach


Ideal as a reference or quick review of the fundamentals of linear algebra, this book offers amatrix-oriented approach--with more emphasis on Euclidean n-space, problem solving, and applications, and less emphasis on abstract vector spaces. It features a variety of applications, boxed statements of important results, and a large number of numbered and unnumbered examples.Matrices, Vectors, and Systems of Linear Equations. Matrices and Linear Transformations. Determinants. Subspaces and Their Properties. Eigenvalues, Eigenvectors, and Diagonalization. Orthogonality. Vector Spaces. Complex Numbers.A professional reference for computer scientists, statisticians, and some engineers.
