Practical Linear Algebra: A Geometry Toolbox by Gerald Farin, Dianne Hansford

By Gerald Farin, Dianne Hansford

Functional Linear Algebra introduces scholars in math, technological know-how, engineering, and laptop technological know-how to Linear Algebra from an intuitive and geometric perspective, making a point of figuring out that is going a ways past mere matrix manipulations. useful elements, akin to special effects issues and numerical techniques, are lined all through, and therefore scholars can construct a "Geometry Toolbox," in response to a geometrical figuring out of the main ideas. This booklet covers the entire usual linear algebra fabric for a first-year direction; the authors educate through motivation, representation, and instance instead of through the use of a theorem/proof sort. targeted beneficial properties: - transparent visible representations (more than 2 hundred figures) for more desirable fabric comprehension. - Hand-drawn sketches motivate scholars to create their very own sketches while fixing problems-developing one other layer of studying. - a number of examples express functions to real-world difficulties. - difficulties on the finish of every bankruptcy permit scholars to check their realizing of the fabric provided. ideas to chose difficulties are supplied. - Concise bankruptcy summaries spotlight an important issues, giving scholars concentration for his or her method of studying. An instructor's guide can be on hand quickly.
