Linear Algebra By Jim Hefferon
Hardcover: $26.23

Linear Algebra by Jim Hefferon is released under the GNU Free Documentation license. Electronic copies may be downloaded for free. Hardcover copies are available for the cost of manufacturing (the... More > publisher receives no additional revenue). The book covers the material of a first undergraduate Linear Algebra course. The coverage is standard: linear systems and Gauss' method, vector spaces, linear maps and matrices, determinants, and eigenvectors and eigenvalues. Prerequisites: a semester of calculus. Students with three semesters of calculus can skip a few sections. The approach is developmental. It does not start with an assumption that students are already able at abstract work. Instead, it proceeds with a great deal of motivation, many computational examples, and exercises that range from routine verifications to (a few) challenges. The goal is, in the context of developing the usual material of an undergraduate linear algebra course, to help raise the level of mathematical maturity of the class.< Less

Linear Algebra Done Wrong By Sergei Treil
Paperback: $9.68
Prints in 3-5 business days
It is 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... More > mathematics that is presented in a "cookbook style" calculus type course. It is also supposed to be a first course introducing a student to rigorous proof and formal definitions. The target audience explains the 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. The book emphasizes topics that are important for analysis, geometry, probability, etc., and does not include some traditional topics. For example, I am only considering vector spaces over the fields of real or complex numbers, since I feel time would be better spent on some more classical topics, which will be required in other disciplines.< Less
Elementary Linear Algebra By Textbook Equity Edition

(CC BY) This textbook, published by Textbook Equity, is an open education resource released by The Saylor Foundation under a Creative Commons license. The original textbook, written by Kenneth... More > Kuttler, was chosen by the Saylor Foundation, after a thorough peer review, to be the companion textbook to their online course. 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.< Less
Linear Algebra Theory and Applications By Textbook Equity Edition
Paperback: $39.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
This is a book on linear algebra and matrix theory. While it is self contained, it will work best for those who have already had some exposure to linear algebra. It is also assumed that the reader... More > has had calculus. Some optional topics require more analysis than this, however. I think that the subject of linear algebra is likely the most significant topic discussed in undergraduate mathematics courses. Part of the reason for this is its usefulness in unifying so many different topics. Linear algebra is essential in analysis, applied math, and even in theoretical mathematics. This is the point of view of this book, more than a presentation of linear algebra for its own sake. This is why there are numerous applications, some fairly unusual.< Less
Introduction to Linear Algebra for Children By Ryan Shuell
eBook (ePub): $9.99
Linear algebra is the branch of mathematics concerning vector spaces and linear mappings between such spaces. It includes the study of lines, planes, and subspaces, but is also concerned with... More > properties common to all vector spaces. The set of points with coordinates that satisfy a linear equation forms a hyperplane in an n-dimensional space. The conditions under which a set of n hyperplanes intersect in a single point is an important focus of study in linear algebra. Such an investigation is initially motivated by a system of linear equations containing several unknowns. These equations are represented using the formalism of matrices and vectors.< Less

Numerical Linear Algebra By William Layton, Myron Sussman
eBook (PDF): $0.00
This textbook was designed for senior undergraduates in mathematics, engineering and the sciences with diverse backgrounds and goals. It presents modern tools from numerical linear algebra with... More > supporting theory along with examples and exercises, both theoretical and computational with MATLAB. The major topics of numerical linear algebra covered are direct methods for solving linear systems, iterative methods for large and sparse systems (including the conjugate gradient method) and eigenvalue problems. Basic linear algebra (of the type taken in the engineering curriculum) is assumed. Further matrix theory is developed in a self contained way when needed to explain why methods work and how they might fail.< Less
