Basic Linear Algebra book. This book is an introductory linear algebra text. Details (if other): Cancel.

This book is an introductory linear algebra text. The book seeks to explain and discover the important concepts of linear algebra using well-chosen examples.

The book covers the most important basics of any first course on linear algebra, explaining the algebra of matrices .

The book covers the most important basics of any first course on linear algebra, explaining the algebra of matrices with applications to analytic geometry, systems of linear equations, difference equations and complex numbers. Linear equations are treated via Hermite normal forms which provides a successful and concrete explanation of the notion of linear independence. Another important highlight is the connection between linear mappings and matrices leading to the change of basis theorem which opens the door to the notion of similarity.

Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) is a specification that prescribes a set of low-level routines for performing common linear algebra operations such as vector addition, scalar multiplication, dot products, linear combinations, and matrix multi.

Basic Linear Algebra Subprograms (BLAS) is a specification that prescribes a set of low-level routines for performing common linear algebra operations such as vector addition, scalar multiplication, dot products, linear combinations, and matrix multiplication. They are the de facto standard low-level routines for linear algebra libraries; the routines have bindings for both C and Fortran.

We use this book in my Linear Algebra class, and i really dont like it. The book is pretty terse, and doesnt explain things very clearly. Text needs to be re-read several times to understand the concepts. If you can get a more detailed book on the subject with clearer explanations. 11 people found this helpful.

Basic knowledge of vector spaces, bases, matrices and linear maps would be assumed. People often confuse between Serge Lang's other book "Linear Algebra" which is slightly advanced and is not primarily for first timers

Basic knowledge of vector spaces, bases, matrices and linear maps would be assumed. Module theory is the same thing - vector spaces are just a bit more restricted so you can get sharper theorems. Well - it turns out it’s a LOT more restricted. People often confuse between Serge Lang's other book "Linear Algebra" which is slightly advanced and is not primarily for first timers. Though he clearly mentions this that the "Introduction to Linear Algebra" is a prelude in the preface, but then how many people do read that section. more)Loadin. riginally Answered: What is the best book for learning Linear Algebra?

This book is an introductory linear algebra text. The topics are covered in the traditional order: linear systems, matrix algebra, vector spaces, linear transformations, orthogonality, and the eigenvalue/eigenvector problem.The book seeks to explain and discover the important concepts of linear algebra using well-chosen examples. Proofs of many important results are done if the proof can be accomplished in a succinct, straightforward fashion. There are over 100 worked-out examples in the text as well as a complete outline of every chapter and extensive review problems which test the student's knowledge of the material covered in each chapter.There are over 1200 exercises in the text, which were created by the author with care to include exercises which resemble problems done in the text. Definitions are well marked and theorems are stated as briefly as possible in order to enhance the ability of the student to remember the result. In a slightly novel way, the answers to the odd problems are given directly next to the problem. Applications such as heat transfer, spring/mass systems, population dynamics, and systems of differential equations are sprinkled throughout the text.
  • Original
This book is poorly written, lacks examples and formatting. I would not recommend this to anyone trying to teach themselves; spend your money on something that was put together with care.
  • Yozshugore
As an introductory text, this book is easy to follow, has lots of worked-out examples, with lots of homework exercises which correspond with the concepts introduced in the text. The answers to the problems are right next to the problems, so that it is not necessary to look up the answer in the back of the book, which sometimes causes confusion and students' thinking that their answer is wrong. The topics are also presented in a traditional order, with the last chapter on eigenvalues and eigenvectors. All in all this is a book which is well worth the price!
