The Linear Algebra Survival Guide is a reference book with a free downloadable Mathematica notebook containing all of interactive code to make the content of the book playable in Mathematica and the Mathematica Player. It offers a concise introduction to the core topics of linear algebra which includes numerous exercises that will accompany a first or second course in linear algebra. This book will guide you through the powerful graphic displays and visualization of Mathematica that make the most abstract theories seem simple-- allowing you to tackle realistic problems using simple mathematical manipulations. The many examples show you how to use Mathematica effectively and easily in many contexts. Numerous exercises and applications are presented requiring programming. The Mathematica Player can be found at http://www.wolfram.com/products/player/.

• Includes computational oriented information that complements the essential topics in linear algebra
• Presents core topics in a simple, straightforward way with examples for exploring computational illustrations, graphics, and displays using the FREE on-line MATHEMATICA PLAYER.
• Provides numerous examples of short code in the text, which can be modified for use with the exercises used to implement graphics displays which can serve as demos
