Description

Appropriate for sophomore or junior level courses, this highly acclaimed text focuses on developing the abstract thinking essential for further mathematical study. Andrilli and Hecker give early, intensive attention to the skills necessary to make students comfortable with mathematical proof. The text builds a gradual and smooth transition from computational results to the general theory of vector spaces. It also provides flexible coverage of practical applications, exploring a comprehensive range of topics.

Review quote

"The manuscript's premiere feature, as is the author's intent, is the clarity of the writing and the numerous and thoroughly explained examples. The tone of the writing strikes a good balance between formality and informality. I believe students really could learn much linear algebra just from reading the text. In these respects, the manuscript is superior to the one I use now (Kolman, PH)." -OBERLIN COLLEGE "The book is a masterly work in linear algebra." -UNIVERSITY OF SCRANTON
