Linear Algebra Done Wrong
by Sergei Treil
Number of pages: 222
The title of the book sounds a bit mysterious. Why should anyone read this book if it presents the subject in a wrong way? What is particularly done "wrong" in the book? Before answering these questions, let me first describe the target audience of this text. This book appeared as lecture notes for the course "Honors Linear Algebra". It supposed to be a first linear algebra course for mathematically advanced students. It is intended for a student who, while not yet very familiar with abstract reasoning, is willing to study more rigorous mathematics that is presented in a "cookbook style" calculus type course. Besides being a first course in linear algebra it is also supposed to be a first course introducing a student to rigorous proof, formal definitions---in short, to the style of modern theoretical (abstract) mathematics. The target audience explains the very specific blend of elementary ideas and concrete examples, which are usually presented in introductory linear algebra texts with more abstract definitions and constructions typical for advanced books.

This document is a resource that integrates a text, videos, and hands-on activities. It connects hand calculations, mathematical abstractions, and computer programming. It encourages you to develop the theory of linear algebra by posing questions.

In the second volume of Calculus and Linear Algebra, the concept of linear algebra is further developed and applied to geometry, many-variable calculus, and differential equations. This volume introduces many novel ideas and proofs.

This groundbreaking textbook covers the aspects of linear algebra - vectors, matrices, and least squares - that are needed for engineering applications, data science, machine learning, signal processing, tomography, navigation, control, etc.

The aim of the text is to achieve a balance among computational skills, theory, and applications of linear algebra. It is a relatively advanced introduction to the ideas and techniques of linear algebra targeted for science and engineering students.
