An introduction to elementary linear algebra — designed especially for those interested in computer science, business and economics, the natural and social sciences, engineering, or mathematics.


covers all the standard topics in an elementary linear algebra — plus modern applications, computer problems, and numerical computations — but is designed so that calculus is NOT a prerequisite.
uses crisp language that makes mathematics accessible without loss of rigor.
motivates readers by demonstrating the power of linear algebra as a problem-solving tool.
illustrates all the basic ideas of linear algebra by means of computational examples and geometric interpretations.
features realistic, self-contained applications.
contains BASIC programs — simplified versions of programs that are available on a computer diskette.
provides ample numbers of ALL types of problems — from routine computational exercises to intriguing applications — at all levels of difficulty.
