## Summary

Renowned for its thoroughness, clarity, and accessibility, this best-selling book by one of today's leading figures in linear algebra reform offers users a challenging yet enjoyable treatment of linear algebra that is infused with an abundance of applications and worked examples. Balancing coverage of mathematical theory and applied topics, the book stresses the important role geometry and visualization play in understanding the subject, and now comes with the new ancillary ATLAS computer exercise guide.Provides modern and comprehensive coverage of the subject, spanning all topics in the core syllabus recommended by the NSF sponsored Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group. Offers new applications in astronomy and statistics, emphasizes the use of geometry to visualize linear algebra and aid in understanding all of the major topics, and previews some of the more difficult vector space concepts early on. MATLAB computing exercises provide users with experience performing matrix computations.For mathematicians.
