Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is a fascinating subject by showing both its beauty and value. While the mathematics is there, the effort is not all concentrated on the proofs. Strang's emphasis is on providing understanding.

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. David 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.

Renowned professor and author Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is a fascinating subject by showing both its beauty and value. While the mathematics is there, the effort is not all concentrated on proofs. Strang's emphasis is on understanding. He explains concepts, rather than deduces. This book is written in an informal and personal style and teaches real mathematics. The gears change in Chapter 2 as students reach the introduction of vector spaces. Throughout the book, the theory is motivated and reinforced by genuine applications, allowing pure mathematicians to teach applied mathematics.

Finally, when discussed in the abstract, these concepts are more accessible. Students conceptual understanding is reinforced through True/False questions, practice problems, and the use of technology. David Lay changed the study of linear algebra with the execution of this philosophy, and continues his quest to improve the way linear algebra is taught with the new Updated Second Edition. With this update he takes the instruction of linear algebra to a new level through inc

Praise for the First Edition ". . .recommended for the teacher and researcher as well as forgraduate students. In fact, [it] has a place on everymathematician's bookshelf." -American Mathematical Monthly Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition presents linearalgebra as the theory and practice of linear spaces and linear mapswith a unique focus on the analytical aspects as well as thenumerous applications of the subject. In addition to thoroughcoverage of linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, game theory,and numerical analysis, the Second Edition featuresstudent-friendly additions that enhance the book's accessibility,including expanded topical coverage in the early chapters,additional exercises, and solutions to selected problems. Beginning chapters are devoted to the abstract structure of finitedimensional vector spaces, and subsequent chapters addressconvexity and the duality theorem as well as describe the basics ofnormed linear spaces and linear maps between normed spaces. Further updates and revisions have been included to reflect themost up-to-date coverage of the topic, including: The QR algorithm for finding the eigenvalues of a self-adjointmatrix The Householder algorithm for turning self-adjoint matricesinto tridiagonal form The compactness of the unit ball as a criterion of finitedimensionality of a normed linear space Additionally, eight new appendices have been added and cover topicssuch as: the Fast Fourier Transform; the spectral radius theorem;the Lorentz group; the compactness criterion for finitedimensionality; the characterization of commentators; proof ofLiapunov's stability criterion; the construction of the JordanCanonical form of matrices; and Carl Pearcy's elegant proof ofHalmos' conjecture about the numerical range of matrices. Clear, concise, and superbly organized, Linear Algebra and ItsApplications, Second Edition serves as an excellent text foradvanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses in linearalgebra. Its comprehensive treatment of the subject also makes itan ideal reference or self-study for industry professionals.
