The techniques of linear algebra are used extensively across the applied sciences, and in many different areas of algebra such as group theory, module theory, representation theory, ring theory, and Galois theory. Written by experienced researchers with a decades of teaching experience, Introduction to Linear Algebra is a clear and rigorous introductory text on this key topic for students of both applied sciences and pure mathematics.
