fkrst The section on vectors is quite extensive, and would be excellent to use in a Freshman course that needed to introduce vectors Overall, the text is very easy to navigate and visually attractive.

Then the following sentence is true. Apollo added it Mar 06, I would suggest adding a link in the table of contents to the exercise section of each chapter. It would be easy to adapt to any introductory curriculum. The content is up-to-date and includes applications that are relevant to many of the students’ future plans. I find the title of Cor.

Aside from a few minor typographical errors the content appears to be very accurate. Students at this level should have no problem filling in the small gaps caused by any reordering. The content is fully accurate. The presentation of the linea in this book is thorough almost to a fault.

The geometric interpretations of matrices and determinants are left for the chapters in the second half of the book; it makes for a very algebra-heavy first three chapters. It is somewhat unnatural to define the subspace of something that is not defined as yet, but sadly it has become somewhat commonplace to do things in this way.

Few chapters that are interconnected may need extra care to rearrange since students would need to have some basic understand of the concept.

The applications are appropriate for the audience and the theory of linear algebra will not become obsolete in the next twenty years. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up.

There are plenty of very nice exercises. The book includes all the topics we require in our introductory linear algebra course. For my students, textbook provides a foundation for the course. As noted by another reviewer, the overall length of the text may seem excessive fidst some readers.

Dense paragraphs are mostly avoided and the text is broken up with examples, theorems, etc Kuttler, has been redesigned by the Lyryx editorial team as a first course in linear algebra for science and engineering students who have an understanding of basic algebra. Navigation in the book is very good.

Lyryx develops and supports open texts, with editorial services to adapt the text for each particular course. This book’s style and grammar is consistent with the books found from the major textbook publishers.

Oliver marked it as to-read Mar 05, Jalal Elwazze rated it it was amazing Feb 07, The proofs are all included and easy to read. The rigor is appropriate and the author has gone to great lengths to cover the standard definitions, theorems, and examples that are at the heart of linear algebra. The only thing that might be considered an inconsistency is that Subspaces and presented in the text prior to vector spaces.

The fundamental courses of mathematics are not generally given to change, but Linear Algebra perhaps more than the rest does need to keep itself updated with the rapidly changing field of Numerical Analysis.

The rigor is appropriate and the author has gone to great lengths to cover the standard definitions, theorems, and examples that are at the heart of linear The order and presentation of topics are quite clear, with plenty of examples.

The geometric intuition in this subject is extremely important and difficult to convey, and this book does a sufficient job.

For the book’s stated purpose of providing a first approach to linear algebra is met.
