Elementary Linear Algebra, 2/e — Lawrence Spence, Arnold Insel, and Stephen Friedberg

 

Embracing the recommendations of the Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, the authors have written a text that students will find both accessible and enlightening.  Written for a matrix-oriented course, students from a variety of disciplines can expect a greater understanding of the concepts of linear algebra.

Lastly, students will find a variety of applications to engage their interest, demonstrated via economics, traffic flow, anthropology, Google searches, computer graphics, or music to name a few. By leveraging technology and incorporating engaging examples and numerous practice problems and exercises, this text best serves the needs of students attempting to master linear algebra.
