Editorial Review Product Description FROM THE REVIEWS: AMERICAN MATHEMATICAL MONTHLY"The determinant-free proofs are elegant and intuitive." CHOICE "Every discipline of higher mathematics evinces the profound importance of linear algebra in some way, either for the power derived from its techniques or the inspiration offered by its concepts. Axler demotes determinants (usually quite a central technique in the finite dimensional setting, though marginal in infinite dimensions) to a minor role. To so consistently do without determinants constitutes a tour de forces in the service of simplicity and clarity; these are also well served by the general precision of Axler's prose. Students with a view towards applied mathematics, analysis, or operator theory will be well served. The most original linear algebra book to appear in years, it certainly belongs in every undergraduate library." ZENTRALBLATT MATH "Altogether, the text is a didactic masterpiece."

Editorial Review Product Description Linear algebra is relatively easy for students during the early stages of the course, when the material is presented in a familiar, concrete setting. But when abstract concepts are introduced, students often hit a brick wall. Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts (such as linear independence, spanning, subspace, vector space, and linear transformations), are not easily understood, and require time to assimilate. Since they are fundamental to the study of linear algebra, students' understanding of these concepts is vital to their mastery of the subject. Lay introduces these concepts early in a familiar, concrete Rn setting, develops them gradually, and returns to them again and again throughout the text so that when discussed in the abstract, these concepts are more accessible.

Editorial Review Product Description This book presents an introduction to linear algebra and to some of its significant applications. It covers the essentials of linear algebra (including Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors) and shows how the computer is used for applications. Emphasizing the computational and geometrical aspects of the subject, this popular book covers the following topics comprehensively but not exhaustively: linear equations and matrices and their applications; determinants; vectors and linear transformations; real vector spaces; eigenvalues, eigenvectors, and diagonalization; linear programming; and MATLAB for linear algebra. Its useful and comprehensive appendices make this an excellent desk reference for anyone involved in mathematics and computer applications. Customer Reviews (5)

Linear Algebra Review
Very good book, worth the price I recommend this book.Heck, it's only $24 (you can get a used copy for half the price) and I suspect you'll spend "more" time with this book than you will your actual $100+ textbook (I know that I did). I'd also like to recommend that you hunt down a used copy (or go to your library and see if they have it) of "Elementary Linear Algebra" by Howard Anton.We had to use the Grossman book (along with its confusing examples and below-average way of showing proofs).After getting frustrated with the Grossman book (and only using it to do the homework problems (but not using the book to actually understand the concepts as the book was way-below-par in doing so) as our teacher assigned us numerous problems), I stuck mainly with the Anton book (any edition after (or including) the 4th edition will do) and this book to get me thru the course with an A. Get this book though.Even if it helps you understand just one topic more clearly then your textbook (and I'm sure it will help you with dozens), it will have paid for itself.You can never practice enough (as Linear algebra will take alot of your time) and this book will come in handy with their explanation and sample problems (that so many textbooks neglect to show).One word of caution though is that the author prefers to solve some of the problems in ways that your teacher may not.Never-the-less, a good book. ...

Editorial Review Product Description If you are looking for a textbook that - teaches state-of-the-art techniques for solving linear algebra problems, - covers the most important methods for dense and sparse problems, - presents both the mathematical background and good software techniques, - is self-contained, assuming only a good undergraduate background in linear algebra, then this is the book for you. Algorithms are derived in a mathematically illuminating way, including condition numbers and error bounds. Direct and iterative algorithms, suitable for dense and sparse matrices, are discussed. Algorithm design for modern computer architectures, where moving data is often more expensive than arithmetic operations, is discussed in detail, using LAPACK as an illustration. There are many numerical examples throughout the text and in the problems at the ends of chapters, most of which are written in Matlab and are freely available on the Web. Material either not available elsewhere, or presented quite differently in other textbooks, includes - a discussion of the impact of modern cache-based computer memories on algorithm design; - frequent recommendations and pointers in the text to the best software currently available, including a detailed performance comparison of state-of-the-art software for eigenvalue and least squares problems, and a description of sparse direct solvers for serial and parallel machines; - a discussion of iterative methods ranging from Jacobi's method to multigrid and domain decomposition, with performance comparisons on a model problem; - a great deal of Matlab-based software, available on the Web, which either implements algorithms presented in the book, produces the figures in the book, or is used in homework problems; - numerical examples drawn from fields ranging from mechanical vibrations to computational geometry; - high-accuracy algorithms for solving linear systems and eigenvalue problems, along with tighter "relative" error bounds;- dynamical systems interpretations of some eigenvalue algorithms. Demmel discusses several current research topics, making students aware of both the lively research taking place and connections to other parts of numerical analysis, mathematics, and computer science. Some of this material is developed in questions at the end of each chapter, which are marked Easy, Medium, or Hard according to their difficulty. Some questions are straightforward, supplying proofs of lemmas used in the text. Others are more difficult theoretical or computing problems. Questions involving significant amounts of programming are marked Programming. The computing questions mainly involve Matlab programming, and others involve retrieving, using, and perhaps modifying LAPACK code from NETLIB. Customer Reviews (18)

Editorial Review Product Description The textbook contains more than 240 examples, 650 exercises, historical notes, and comments on numerical performance and some of the possible pitfalls of algorithms. It comes with a solutions manual that includes complete solutions to all of the exercises. As a bonus, a CD-ROM is included that contains a searchable copy of the entire textbook and all solutions. Detailed information on topics mentioned in examples, references for additional study, thumbnail sketches and photographs of mathematicians, and a history of linear algebra and computing are also on the CD-ROM, which can be used on all platforms. Students will love the book's clear presentation and informal writing style. The detailed applications are valuable to them in seeing how linear algebra is applied to real-life situations. One of the most interesting aspects of this book, however, is the inclusion of historical information. These personal insights into some of the greatest mathematicians who developed this subject provide a spark for students and make the teaching of this topic more fun. Customer Reviews (26)
