Summary

This introductory text on the subject of linear algebra stresses finite dimensional vector spaces and linear transformations. Proofs are given in detail, and carefully chosen problems demonstrate the variety of situations in which these concepts arise. Appendixes offer extensive supplementary material. This book is intended for undergraduate majors in mathematics, applied mathematics, chemistry, and physics. The only prerequisite is a first course in calculus.
