**A First Course in Linear Algebra**

by Robert A. Beezer

**Publisher**: University of Puget Sound 2010**ISBN/ASIN**: B00262XN6S**Number of pages**: 1035

**Description**:

A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook aimed at college-level sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality. The final chapter covers matrix representations of linear transformations, through diagonalization, change of basis and Jordan canonical form. Along the way, determinants and eigenvalues get fair time.
