Basic Linear Algebra

Publisher: University of Glasgow 2008
Number of pages: 73
Linear Algebra is one of the most important basic areas in Mathematics, having at least as great an impact as Calculus, and indeed it provides a significant part of the machinery required to generalise Calculus to vector-valued functions of many variables. These notes were originally written for a course at the University of Glasgow in the years 2006-7. They cover basic ideas and techniques of Linear Algebra that are applicable in many subjects including the physical and chemical sciences, statistics as well as other parts of mathematics.

by Ken Kuttler - Lyryx
The book presents an introduction to the fascinating subject of linear algebra. It is designed as a course in linear algebra for students who have a reasonable understanding of basic algebra. Major topics of linear algebra are presented in detail.
by Katta G. Murty
A sophomore level book on linear algebra and n-dimensional geometry with the aim of developing in college entering undergraduates skills in algorithms, computational methods, and mathematical modeling. Written in a simple style with lots of examples.
by David Cherney, Tom Denton, Andrew Waldron - UC Davis
This textbook is suitable for a sophomore level linear algebra course taught in about twenty-five lectures. It is designed both for engineering and science majors, but has enough abstraction to be useful for potential math majors.
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.
