Basic Linear Algebra

Publisher: University of Glasgow 2008
Number of pages: 73
Linear Algebra is one of the most important basic areas in Mathematics, having at least as great an impact as Calculus, and indeed it provides a significant part of the machinery required to generalise Calculus to vector-valued functions of many variables. These notes were originally written for a course at the University of Glasgow in the years 2006-7. They cover basic ideas and techniques of Linear Algebra that are applicable in many subjects including the physical and chemical sciences, statistics as well as other parts of mathematics.

This book covers a first course of linear algebra, it introduces mathematically advanced students to rigorous proof and formal definitions. The author of the text tried to emphasize topics important for analysis, geometry and probability.

These notes are drawn from lectures given for a first year introduction to linear algebra. The prerequisites for this course are arithmetic and elementary algebra, and some comfort and facility with proofs, particularly using mathematical induction.

This is a textbook for a one-semester course in linear algebra and vector spaces. An emphasis is made on the coordinate free analysis. The course mimics in some ways a modern algebra course. Calculus is a prerequisite for the course.

This is an undergraduate linear algebra textbook, it covers linear systems, Gauss' method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues. Each chapter is followed by additional topics and applications.
