Linear algebra via exterior products

Linear algebra via exterior products
by

Publisher: Ludwig-Maximilians University
Number of pages: 82

Description:
A pedagogical introduction to the coordinate-free approach in basic finite-dimensional linear algebra. The reader should be already exposed to the elementary array-based formalism of vector and matrix calculations. In this book, the author makes extensive use of the exterior product of vectors. He shows how the standard properties of determinants, the Liouville formula, the Hamilton-Cayley theorem, and Pfaffians, as well as some results concerning eigenspace projectors can be derived without cumbersome matrix calculations.
