Linear Algebra presents a careful treatment of the principal topics of linear algebra. This acclaimed theorem-proof text emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between linear transformations and matrices, but states theorems in the more general infinite-dimensional case where appropriate. Applications to such areas as differential equations, economics, geometry and physics appear throughout. It is especially suited to a second course in linear algebra that emphasizes abstract vector spaces, and can be used in a first course with a strong theoretical emphasis. Updates to the 5th Edition include revised proofs of some theorems, additional examples, and new exercises. Also new in this revision are online solutions for selected theoretical exercises, accessible by short URLs at point-of-use.
