Linear Algebra Done RightThis text for a second course in linear algebra is aimed at math majors and graduate students. The novel approach taken here banishes determinants to the end of the book and focuses on the central goal of linear algebra: understanding the structure of linear operators on vector spaces. The author has taken unusual care to motivate concepts and to simplify proofs. For example, the book presentswithout having defined determinantsa clean proof that every linear operator on a finitedimensional complex vector space (or an odddimensional real vector space) has an eigenvalue. A variety of interesting exercises in each chapter helps students understand and manipulate the objects of linear algebra. 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. Students are introduced to innerproduct spaces in the first half of the book and shortly thereafter to the finitedimensional spectral theorem. This second edition includes a new section on orthogonal projections and minimization problems. The sections on selfadjoint operators, normal operators, and the spectral theorem have been rewritten. New examples and new exercises have been added, several proofs have been simplified, and hundreds of minor improvements have been made throughout the text.

Review: Linear Algebra Done Right (Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics)
User Review  Erickson  GoodreadsVery good book for linear algebra, one which attempts to avoid the rather unmotivated concepts of determinants to prove many important results. The book focuses more on operators which are more ... Read full review
