Basic Linear Algebra
by Andrew Baker
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.

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.
by Robert A. Beezer - University of Puget Sound
Introductory textbook for college-level sophomores and juniors. It covers systems of linear equations, matrix algebra, finite-dimensional vector spaces, matrix representations of linear transformations, diagonalization, Jordan canonical form, etc.
by David Cherney, Tom Denton, Andrew Waldron - UC Davis
This textbook is suitable for a sophomore level linear algebra course taught in about twenty-five lectures. It is designed both for engineering and science majors, but has enough abstraction to be useful for potential math majors.
by Paul Dawkins - Lamar University
These topics are covered: Systems of Equations and Matrices; Determinants; Euclidean n-space; Vector Spaces; Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors. These notes do assume that the reader has a good working knowledge of basic Algebra.
