Linear Algebra Reviews

The present textbook is intended for a one-term course at the junior or senior level. It begins with an exposition of the basic theory of finite-dimensional vector spaces and proceeds to explain the structure theorems for linear maps, including eigenvectors and eigenvalues, quadratic and Hermitian forms, diagonalization of symmetric, Hermitian, and unitary linear maps and matrices, triangulation, and Jordan canonical form. It also includes a useful chapter on convex sets and the finite-dimensional Krein-Milman theorem. The presentation is aimed at the student who has already had some exposure to the elementary theory of matrices, determinants, and linear maps. In this third edition, many parts of the book have been rewritten and reorganized, and new exercises have been added. (S. Lajos, Mathematical Reviews)
