By Kenneth Hoffman, Ray Kunze

From the preface:

"Our unique objective in penning this e-book was once to supply a textual content for the undergraduate linear algebra direction on the Massachusetts Institute of know-how. This direction used to be designed for arithmetic majors on the junior point, even supposing 3 fourths of the scholars have been drawn from different clinical and technological disciplines and ranged from rookies via graduate scholars. This description of the M.I.T. viewers for the textual content continues to be in general exact this day. the 10 years because the first variation have obvious the proliferation of linear algebra classes in the course of the state and feature afforded one of many authors the chance to coach the fundamental fabric to various teams at Brandeis collage, Washington college (St. Louis), and the collage of California (Irvine).

Our relevant goal in revising Linear Algebra has been to extend the diversity of classes that could simply learn from it. On one hand, we have now based the chapters, specifically the tougher ones, in order that there are numerous ordinary preventing issues alongside the best way, permitting the trainer in a one-quarter or one-semester path to workout a large amount of selection within the subject material. however, we've got elevated the quantity of fabric within the textual content, in order that it may be used for a slightly entire one-year path in linear algebra or even as a reference publication for mathematicians."

The e-book covers loads of linear algebra in a rigorous method. The dossier is a searchable DJVU with a bit of askew and irregularly sized pages.
