Vectors, pure and applied : a general introduction to linear algebra [EBook] / T.W. Körner, Trinity Hall, Cambridge.
Many books in linear algebra focus purely on getting students through exams, but this text explains both the how and the why of linear algebra and enables students to begin thinking like mathematicians. The author demonstrates how different topics (geometry, abstract algebra, numerical analysis, phy...
