A First Course in Linear Algebra

A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook aimed at college-level sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality. The final chapter covers matrix representations of linear transformations, through diagonalization, change of basis and Jordan canonical form. Along the way, determinants and eigenvalues get fair time.

Introduction to linear algebra where everything is done with the row reduced echelon form and specific algorithms. The notions of vector spaces and linear transformations are at the end. Intended for a first course in linear algebra.

In the second volume of Calculus and Linear Algebra, the concept of linear algebra is further developed and applied to geometry, many-variable calculus, and differential equations. This volume introduces many novel ideas and proofs.

There are five chapters: Systems of Linear Equations, Vector Spaces, Homogeneous Systems, Characteristic Equation of Matrix, and Matrix Dot Product. It has also exercises at the end of each chapter above to let students practice additional problems.

The text covers basic ideas and techniques of Linear Algebra that are applicable in many subjects including the physical and chemical sciences, and statistics. These notes were originally written for a course at the University of Glasgow.
