Linear Algebra with Applications, Ninth Edition is designed for the introductory course in linear algebra for students within engineering, mathematics, business management, and physics. Updated to increase clarity and improve student learning, the author provides a flexible blend of theory and engaging applications.
The material in Linear Algebra with Applications, Ninth Edition is arranged into three parts that contain core and optional sections:
Part 1 introduces the basics, discussing systems of linear equations, vectors in Rn matrices, linear transformations, determinants, eigenvalues, and eigenspaces.
Part 2 builds on this material to discuss general vector spaces, and includes such topics as the Rank/Nullity Theorem, inner products and coordinate representation.
Part 3 completes the course with important ideas and methods in Numerical Linear Algebra including ill-conditioning, pivoting, LU decomposition and Singular Value Decomposition.
Throughout the text the author provides interesting applications, ranging from theoretical applications such as the use of linear algebra in differential equations, to many practical applications in the fields of electrical engineering, traffic analysis, relativity, history, and more.
