Elementary Linear Algebra by Kenneth Kuttler

Elementary Linear Algebra

Publisher: The Saylor Foundation
Number of pages: 433

This is an introduction to linear algebra. The main part of the book features row operations and everything is done in terms of the row reduced echelon form and specific algorithms. At the end, the more abstract notions of vector spaces and linear transformations on vector spaces are presented. However, this is intended to be a first course in linear algebra for students who are sophomores or juniors who have had a course in one variable calculus and a reasonable background in college algebra. I have given complete proofs of all the fundamental ideas but some topics such as Markov matrices are not complete in this book but receive a plausible introduction.

The book was designed specifically for students who had not previously been exposed to mathematics as mathematicians view it. That is, as a subject whose goal is to rigorously prove theorems starting from clear consistent definitions.

This is a textbook for a one-semester course in linear algebra and vector spaces. An emphasis is made on the coordinate free analysis. The course mimics in some ways a modern algebra course. Calculus is a prerequisite for the course.
