Intended for the first course in linear algebra, this widely used text balances mathematical techniques and mathematical proofs. It presents theory in small steps and provides more examples and exercises involving computations than competing texts.


Most of the text assumes a knowledge of high-school level algebra with no calculus, although some examples and exercises involve topics from calculus. This fifth edition features examples from a variety of disciplines, theorems tying together topics in the study of matrices and linear transformations, self-tests, calculator boxes to help students with calculator use, discussion of matrix multiplication and LU-factorizations of a matrix, and tutorials from MATLAB software.
