Abstract:

Introducing students to a subject that lies at the foundations of modern mathematics, physics, statistics, and many other disciplines, Linear Algebra: A Geometric Approach appeals to science and engineering students as well as mathematics students making the transition to more abstract advanced courses. One of the goals of this text is to help students learn to think about mathematical concepts and to write rigorous mathematical arguments. The authors do not presuppose any exposure to vectors or vector algebra, and only a passing acquaintance with the derivative and integral is required for certain (optional) topics.
