About the Authors
  • This book is a readable introduction to linear algebra, starting at an elementary level. It is intended to be useful both for students of pure mathematics who may subsequently pursue more advanced study in this area and for students who require linear algebra and its applications in other subjects. Throughout, stress is placed on applications of the subject in preference to more theoretical aspects. The book has worked examples on every left-hand page concurrently with the text on the right-hand page, which allows the reader to follow the text uninterrupted. The book is intended to be worked through and learned from, and contains numerous exercises with solutions.

    Reviews & endorsements

    'The book is clearly directed at students who have had little or no experience of solving linear equations at school. Moreover, it is intended for people who do not find learning mathematics easy. There are no short cuts, or bribes in the form of interesting applications, but the student who is motivated to learn about systems of linear equations, and willing to work through the exercises, will have an excellent opportunity to acquire proficiency and understanding.' The Times Higher Education Supplement
