Written for introductory-level courses, this book presents linear algebra as a tool for solving mathematical problems in the fields of mathematics, science, and engineering. The text guides readers as they devise proofs and deal with abstractions by focusing on a comprehensive blend of theory and applications. Topics include systems of linear equations, vector spaces and transformations, matrix operations, and eigensystems. The revised second edition contains many additional exercises.
MATLAB is used to solve numerous application examples. In addition, a supplemental set of MATLAB code files is available for download.
