This book presents an introduction to linear algebra and to some of its significant applications. It covers the essentials of linear algebra (including Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors) and shows how the computer is used for applications. Emphasizing the computational and geometrical aspects of the subject, this popular book covers the following topics comprehensively but not exhaustively: linear equations and matrices and their applications; determinants; vectors and linear transformations; real vector spaces; eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and diagonalization; linear programming; and MATLAB for linear algebra. Its useful and comprehensive appendices make this an excellent desk reference for anyone involved in mathematics and computer applications.

Ideal as an introduction to Linear Algebra.From the Back Cover:
This book provides an introduction to the basic ideas, computational techniques, and applications of linear algebra. Introductory Linear Algebra with Applications Sixth Edition emphasizes the computational and geometrical aspects of linear algebra, while keeping abstraction to a minimum and illustrating every idea with examples. It provides three different types of exercises. Exercises contains routine exercises. Theoretical Exercises includes exercises that fill in gaps in some of the proofs and can be used to challenge the more capable and interested reader. The third class consists of MATLAB exercises connected to the available MATLAB disk. In addition, the end of every chapter contains a summary of Key Ideas for Review, a set of Supplementary Exercises, and a Chapter Test. The sixth edition of Introductory Linear Algebra with Applications has been revised to incorporate recommendations from The Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group on developing ways to improve instruction in linear algebra. A valuable reference book on the basic of linear algebra and its applications for any reader seeking information on the subject.
