Linear Algebra (2nd Edition) by Kenneth Hoffman, Ray Kunze

By Kenneth Hoffman, Ray Kunze

From the preface:

"Our unique objective in scripting this publication was once to supply a textual content for the undergraduate linear algebra direction on the Massachusetts Institute of expertise. This path used to be designed for arithmetic majors on the junior point, even though 3 fourths of the scholars have been drawn from different medical and technological disciplines and ranged from learners via graduate scholars. This description of the M.I.T. viewers for the textual content continues to be usually actual this present day. the 10 years because the first version have noticeable the proliferation of linear algebra classes through the state and feature afforded one of many authors the chance to coach the elemental fabric to quite a few teams at Brandeis collage, Washington college (St. Louis), and the college of California (Irvine).

Our significant objective in revising Linear Algebra has been to extend the diversity of classes which could simply learn from it. On one hand, we now have based the chapters, particularly the more challenging ones, in order that there are a number of traditional preventing issues alongside the way in which, permitting the trainer in a one-quarter or one-semester direction to workout a large amount of selection within the subject material. however, we've got elevated the volume of fabric within the textual content, in order that it may be used for a slightly accomplished one-year path in linear algebra or even as a reference e-book for mathematicians."

The ebook covers loads of linear algebra in a rigorous means. The dossier is a searchable DJVU with a bit of askew and irregularly sized pages.
