Useful Concepts and Results at the Heart of Linear Algebra A one- or two-semester course for a wide variety of students at the sophomore/junior undergraduate level A Modern Introduction to Linear Algebra provides a rigorous yet accessible matrix-oriented introduction to the essential concepts of linear algebra. Concrete, easy-to-understand examples motivate the theory. The book first discusses vectors, Gaussian elimination, and reduced row echelon forms. It then offers a thorough introduction to matrix algebra, including defining the determinant naturally from the PA=LU factorization of a matrix. The author goes on to cover finite-dimensional real vector spaces, infinite-dimensional spaces, linear transformations, and complex vector spaces. The final chapter presents Hermitian and normal matrices as well as quadratic forms. Taking a computational, algebraic, and geometric approach to the subject, this book provides the foundation for later courses in higher mathematics. It also shows how linear algebra can be used in various areas of application. Although written in a "pencil and paper" manner, the text offers ample opportunities to enhance learning with calculators or computer usage. Solutions manual available for qualifying instructors

David Poole's innovative LINEAR ALGEBRA: A MODERN INTRODUCTION, 4e emphasizes a vectors approach and better prepares students to make the transition from computational to theoretical mathematics. Balancing theory and applications, the book is written in a conversational style and combines a traditional presentation with a focus on student-centered learning. Theoretical, computational, and applied topics are presented in a flexible yet integrated way. Stressing geometric understanding before computational techniques, vectors and vector geometry are introduced early to help students visualize concepts and develop mathematical maturity for abstract thinking. Additionally, the book includes ample applications drawn from a variety of disciplines, which reinforce the fact that linear algebra is a valuable tool for modeling real-life problems.

This book originated from a Discussion Group (Teaching Linear Algebra) that was held at the 13th International Conference on Mathematics Education (ICME-13). The aim was to consider and highlight current efforts regarding research and instruction on teaching and learning linear algebra from around the world, and to spark new collaborations. As the outcome of the two-day discussion at ICME-13, this book focuses on the pedagogy of linear algebra with a particular emphasis on tasks that are productive for learning. The main themes addressed include: theoretical perspectives on the teaching and learning of linear algebra; empirical analyses related to learning particular content in linear algebra; the use of technology and dynamic geometry software; and pedagogical discussions of challenging linear algebra tasks. Drawing on the expertise of mathematics education researchers and research mathematicians with experience in teaching linear algebra, this book gathers work from nine countries: Austria, Germany, Israel, Ireland, Mexico, Slovenia, Turkey, the USA and Zimbabwe.

The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the preeminent authors outline the material in a simplified, schematic manner, avoiding special terminology wherever possible. Organized in ascending order of complexity, the material is divided into two parts. The first part is a coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, and theorems. It covers arithmetic, elementary and analytic geometry, algebra, differential and integral calculus, special functions, calculus of variations, and probability theory. Numerous specific examples clarify the methods for solving problems and equations. The second part provides many in-depth mathematical tables, including those of exact solutions of various types of equations. This concise, comprehensive compendium of mathematical definitions, formulas, and theorems provides the foundation for exploring scientific and technological phenomena.

A Modern Introduction to Differential Equations, Third Edition, provides an introduction to the basic concepts of differential equations. The book begins by introducing the basic concepts of differential equations, focusing on the analytical, graphical and numerical aspects of first-order equations, including slope fields and phase lines. The comprehensive resource then covers methods of solving second-order homogeneous and nonhomogeneous linear equations with constant coefficients, systems of linear differential equations, the Laplace transform and its applications to the solution of differential equations and systems of differential equations, and systems of nonlinear equations. Throughout the text, valuable pedagogical features support learning and teaching. Each chapter concludes with a summary of important concepts, and figures and tables are provided to help students visualize or summarize concepts. The book also includes examples and updated exercises drawn from biology, chemistry, and economics, as well as from traditional pure mathematics, physics, and engineering. Offers an accessible and highly readable resource to engage students Introduces qualitative and numerical methods early to build understanding Includes a large number of exercises from biology, chemistry, economics, physics and engineering Provides exercises that are labeled based on difficulty/sophistication and end-of-chapter summaries
