Every student of mathematics needs a sound grounding in the techniques of linear algebra. It forms the basis of the study of linear equations, matrices, linear mappings, and differential equations, and comprises a central part of any course in mathematics. This textbook provides a rigorous introduction to the main concepts of linear algebra which will be suitable for all students coming to the subject for the first time. The book is in two parts: Part One develops the basic theory of vector spaces and linear maps, including dimension, determinants, and eigenvalues and eigenvectors. Part Two goes on to develop more advanced topics and in particular the study of canonical forms for matrices. Professor Berberian is at pains to explain all the ideas underlying the proofs of results as well as to give numerous examples and applications. There is an abundant supply of exercises to reinforce the reader's grasp of the material and to elaborate on ideas from the text. As a result, this book presents a well-rounded and mathematically sound first course in linear algebra.Berberian, Sterling K. is the author of 'Linear Algebra - Sterling K. Berberian - Hardcover' with ISBN 9780198534365 and ISBN 0198534361.
