Linear algebra forms the basis for much of modern mathematics—theoretical, applied, and computational. Finite-Dimensional Linear Algebra provides a solid foundation for the study of advanced mathematics and discusses applications of linear algebra to such diverse areas as combinatorics, differential equations, optimization, and approximation. The author begins with an overview of the essential themes of the book: linear equations, best approximation, and diagonalization. He then takes students through an axiomatic development of vector spaces, linear operators, eigenvalues, norms, and inner products. In addition to discussing the special properties of symmetric matrices, he covers the Jordan canonical form, an important theoretical tool, and the singular value decomposition, a powerful tool for computation. The final chapters present introductions to numerical linear algebra and analysis in vector spaces, including a brief introduction to functional analysis (infinite-dimensional linear algebra). Drawing on material from the author’s own course, this textbook gives students a strong theoretical understanding of linear algebra. It offers many illustrations of how linear algebra is used throughout mathematics.

This book presents a concise, comprehensive introduction to the fundamentals of linear algebra. The authors develop the subject in a manner accessible to readers of varied backgrounds. The material requires only very basic algebra and a rudimentary knowledge of matrices and determinants as prerequisites, but the text includes an introductory chapter containing most of the foundational material required. Linear Algebra begins with the basic concepts of vector spaces, subspace, basis, and dimension. Although the authors emphasize finite dimensional vector spaces, they also include examples of infinite dimensional vector spaces to highlight the differences between the two classes. The treatment then moves to the analysis of a single linear operator on a finite dimensional vector space, including discussions on characterizing diagonizable and triangulable operators. It uses the concept of generalized eigenvectors to obtain an inductive procedure for constructing a Jordan basis for a triangulable linear operator and again uses an algorithmic approach to the rational canonical form. Subsequent discussions focus on finite dimensional inner product spaces and non-negative operators, isometries, and polar and singular-value decomposition. The final chapter explores bilinear forms and extends the results of inner product spaces to bilinear spaces. Numerous examples and exercises at the end of each section make this an outstanding text for graduate and senior undergraduate students.

This book is meant for an introductory course in linear algebra for undergraduate students of mathematics. It deals with the concept of vector spaces and special types of functions defined on them called linear transformations or operators. The vector spaces considered in the book are finite-dimensional, a concept that involves representation of vectors in terms of a finite number of vectors which form a basis for the vector spaces. Written from a student’s perspective, this textbook explains the basic concepts in a manner that the student would be able to grasp the subject easily. Numerous solved examples and exercises given at the end of nearly each section will help the student to gain confidence in his/her analytical skills. What makes this book probably stand apart from other standard books on finite-dimensional linear algebra is the introduction to Hilbert Space Theory. The generic model of a finite-dimensional Hilbert space (real or complex) is IRn or sn but the true relevance of operators in Hilbert spaces surfaces only when they are infinite-dimensional. In order to properly comprehend the structure of an infinite-dimensional Hilbert space, it is important to grasp it at the finite-dimensional level. Although finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces are discussed comprehensively in the first eight chapters, it is only in the last three chapters that the treatment of Hilbert spaces is given in a setting which can be easily extended to defining infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. After going through this textbook, the students will have a clear understanding of the model of a Hilbert space in finite-dimensions and will then be able to smoothly make the transition to infinite-dimensional Hilbert Space Theory.

This is a pedagogical introduction to the coordinate-free approach in basic finite-dimensional linear algebra. The reader should be already exposed to the array-based formalism of vector and matrix calculations. This book makes extensive use of the exterior (anti-commutative, "wedge") product of vectors. The coordinate-free formalism and the exterior product, while somewhat more abstract, provide a deeper understanding of the classical results in linear algebra. Without cumbersome matrix calculations, this text derives the standard properties of determinants, the Pythagorean formula for multidimensional volumes, the formulas of Jacobi and Liouville, the Cayley-Hamilton theorem, the Jordan canonical form, the properties of Pfaffians, as well as some generalizations of these results.

This popular and successful text was originally written for a one-semester course in linear algebra at the sophomore undergraduate level. Consequently, the book deals almost exclusively with real finite dimensional vector spaces, but in a setting and formulation that permits easy generalisation to abstract vector spaces. A wide selection of examples of vector spaces and linear transformation is presented to serve as a testing ground for the theory. In the second edition, a new chapter on Jordan normal form was added which reappears here in expanded form as the second goal of this new edition, after the principal axis theorem. To achieve these goals in one semester it is necessary to follow a straight path, but this is compensated by a wide selection of examples and exercises. In addition, the author includes an introduction to invariant theory to show that linear algebra alone is incapable of solving these canonical forms problems. A compact, but mathematically clean introduction to linear algebra with particular emphasis on topics in abstract algebra, the theory of differential equations, and group representation theory.

Jordan's classification theorem for linear transformations on a finite-dimensional vector space is a natural highlight of the deep relationship between linear algebra and the arithmetical properties of polynomial rings. Because the methods and results of finite-dimensional linear algebra seldom extend to or have analogs in infinite-dimensional operator theory, it is therefore remarkable to have a class of operators which has a classification theorem analogous to Jordan's classical result and has properties closely related to the arithmetic of the ring $H^{\infty}$ of bounded analytic functions in the unit disk. $C_0$ is such a class and is the central object of study in this book.A contraction operator belongs to $C_0$ if and only if the associated functional calculus on $H^{\infty}$ has a nontrivial kernel. $C_0$ was discovered by Bela Sz.-Nagy and Ciprian Foias in their work on canonical models for contraction operators on Hilbert space. Besides their intrinsic interest and direct applications, operators of class $C_0$ are very helpful in constructing examples and counterexamples in other branches of operator theory. In addition, $C_0$ arises in certain problems of control and realization theory.In this survey work, the author provides a unified and concise presentation of a subject that was covered in many articles. The book describes the classification theory of $C_0$ and relates this class to other subjects such as general dilation theory, stochastic realization, representations of convolution algebras, and Fredholm theory. This book should be of interest to operator theorists as well as theoretical engineers interested in the applications of operator theory. In an effort to make the book as self-contained as possible, the author gives an introduction to the theory of dilations and functional models for contraction operators. Prerequisites for this book are a course in functional analysis and an acquaintance with the theory of Hardy spaces in the unit disk. In addition, knowledge of the trace class of operators is necessary in the chapter on weak contractions.

Most of the introductory courses on linear algebra develop the basic theory of finite dimensional vector spaces, and in so doing relate the notion of a linear mapping to that of a matrix. Generally speaking, such courses culminate in the diagonalisation of certain matrices and the application of this process to various situations. Such is the case, for example, in our previous SUMS volume Basic Linear Algebra. The present text is a continuation of that volume, and has the objective of introducing the reader to more advanced properties of vector spaces and linear mappings, and consequently of matrices. For readers who are not familiar with the contents of Basic Linear Algebra we provide an introductory chapter that consists of a compact summary of the prerequisites for the present volume. In order to consolidate the student's understanding we have included a large num ber of illustrative and worked examples, as well as many exercises that are strategi cally placed throughout the text. Solutions to the exercises are also provided. Many applications of linear algebra require careful, and at times rather tedious, calculations by hand. Very often these are subject to error, so the assistance of a com puter is welcome. As far as computation in algebra is concerned, there are several packages available. Here we include, in the spirit of a tutorial, a chapter that gives 1 a brief introduction to the use of MAPLE in dealing with numerical and algebraic problems in linear algebra.

This best-selling textbook for a second course in linear algebra is aimed at undergrad math majors and graduate students. The novel approach taken here banishes determinants to the end of the book. The text focuses on the central goal of linear algebra: understanding the structure of linear operators on finite-dimensional vector spaces. The author has taken unusual care to motivate concepts and to simplify proofs. A variety of interesting exercises in each chapter helps students understand and manipulate the objects of linear algebra. The third edition contains major improvements and revisions throughout the book. More than 300 new exercises have been added since the previous edition. Many new examples have been added to illustrate the key ideas of linear algebra. New topics covered in the book include product spaces, quotient spaces, and dual spaces. Beautiful new formatting creates pages with an unusually pleasant appearance in both print and electronic versions. No prerequisites are assumed other than the usual demand for suitable mathematical maturity. Thus the text starts by discussing vector spaces, linear independence, span, basis, and dimension. The book then deals with linear maps, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors. Inner-product spaces are introduced, leading to the finite-dimensional spectral theorem and its consequences. Generalized eigenvectors are then used to provide insight into the structure of a linear operator.

A. Audience. This treatise (consisting of the present VoU and of VoUI, to be published) is primarily intended to be a textbook for a core course in mathematics at the advanced undergraduate or the beginning graduate level. The treatise should also be useful as a textbook for selected stu dents in honors programs at the sophomore and junior level. Finally, it should be of use to theoretically inclined scientists and engineers who wish to gain a better understanding of those parts of mathemat ics that are most likely to help them gain insight into the conceptual foundations of the scientific discipline of their interest. B. Prerequisites. Before studying this treatise, a student should be familiar with the material summarized in Chapters 0 and 1 of Vol.1. Three one-semester courses in serious mathematics should be sufficient to gain such fa miliarity. The first should be an introduction to contemporary math ematics and should cover sets, families, mappings, relations, number systems, and basic algebraic structures. The second should be an in troduction to rigorous real analysis, dealing with real numbers and real sequences, and with limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration of real functions of one real variable. The third should be an intro duction to linear algebra, with emphasis on concepts rather than on computational procedures. C. Organization.

Advanced Linear Algebra focuses on vector spaces and the maps between them that preserve their structure (linear transformations). It starts with familiar concepts and then slowly builds to deeper results. Along with including many exercises and examples, each section reviews what students need to know before studying the material. The book first introduces vector spaces over fields as well as the fundamental concepts of linear combinations, span of vectors, linear independence, basis, and dimension. After covering linear transformations, it discusses the algebra of polynomials with coefficients in a field, concentrating on results that are consequences of the division algorithm. The author then develops the whole structure theory of a linear operator on a finite dimensional vector space from a collection of some simple results. He also explores the entire range of topics associated with inner product spaces, from the Gram–Schmidt process to the spectral theorems for normal and self-adjoint operators on an inner product space. The text goes on to rigorously describe the trace and determinant of linear operators and square matrices. The final two chapters focus on bilinear forms and tensor products and related material. Designed for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students, this textbook shows students the beauty of linear algebra. It also prepares them for further study in mathematics.
