Concise Introduction to Linear Algebra deals with the subject of linear algebra, covering vectors and linear systems, vector spaces, orthogonality, determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, singular value decomposition. It adopts an efficient approach to lead students from vectors, matrices quickly into more advanced topics including, LU decomposition, orthogonal decomposition, Least squares solutions, Gram-Schmidt process, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalizability, spectral decomposition, positive definite matrix, quadratic forms, singular value decompositions and principal component analysis. This book is designed for onesemester teaching to undergraduate students.
Vectors and linear systems. Solving linear systems. Vector spaces. Orthogonality. Determinants. Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors. Singular value decomposition.
