Gilbert, Jimmie, Gilbert, Linda
Intended for a serious first course or a second course in linear algebra, this book carries students beyond eigenvalues and eigenvectors to the classification of bilinear forms, normal matrices, spectral decompositions, the Jordan form, and sequences and series of matrices. The authors present the material from a structural point of view: fundamental algebraic properties of the entities involved are emphasized. The approach is particularly important because the mathematical systems encountered in linear algebra furnish a wealth of examples for the structures studied in more advanced courses. By taking a straight and smooth path to the heart of linear algebra, students will be able to make the transition from the intuitive developments of courses at a lower level to the more abstract treatments encountered later.Gilbert, Jimmie is the author of 'Linear Algebra and Matrix Theory', published 2004 under ISBN 9780534405816 and ISBN 0534405819.
