Concise undergraduate text focuses on problem solving, rather than elaborate proofs. The first three chapters present the basics of matrices, including addition, multiplication, and division. In later chapters the author introduces vectors and shows how to use vectors and matrices to solve systems of linear equations. 1961 edition. 20 black-and-white illustrations.

This text was designed as a short introductory course to give students the tools of vector algebra and calculus, as well as a brief glimpse into the subjects' manifold applications. 1957 edition. 86 figures.

Concise, readable text ranges from definition of vectors and discussion of algebraic operations on vectors to the concept of tensor and algebraic operations on tensors. Worked-out problems and solutions. 1968 edition.

Elementary, concrete approach: fundamentals of matrix algebra, linear transformation of the plane, application of properties of eigenvalues and eigenvectors to study of conics. Includes proofs of most theorems. Answers to odd-numbered exercises.

This outstanding text and reference for upper-level undergraduates features extensive problems and solutions in its application of matrix ideas to vector methods for a synthesis of pure and applied mathematics. 1963 edition. Includes 121 figures.

This examination of geometry's correlation with other branches of math and science features a review of systematic geometric motivations in vector space theory and matrix theory; more. 1965 edition.

This introductory text offers a rigorous, comprehensive treatment. Classical theorems of vector calculus are amply illustrated with figures, worked examples, physical applications, and exercises with hints and answers. 1986 edition.

The breadth of matrix theory's applications is reflected by this volume, which features material of interest to applied mathematicians as well as to control engineers studying stability of a servo-mechanism and numerical analysts evaluating the roots of a polynomial. Starting with a survey of complex symmetric, antisymmetric, and orthogonal matrices, the text advances to explorations of singular bundles of matrices and matrices with nonnegative elements. Applied mathematicians will take particular note of the full and readable chapter on applications of matrix theory to the study of systems of linear differential equations, and the text concludes with an exposition on the Routh-Hurwitz problem plus several helpful appendixes. 1959 edition.

Basic textbook covers theory of matrices and its applications to systems of linear equations and related topics such as determinants, eigenvalues, and differential equations. Includes numerous exercises.

Concise undergraduate-level text by a prominent mathematician explores the relationship between algebra and geometry. An elementary course in plane geometry is the sole requirement. Includes answers to exercises. 1962 edition.

This unique text provides students with a basic course in both calculus and analytic geometry — no competitive editions cover both topics in a single volume. Its prerequisites are minimal, and the order of its presentation promotes an intuitive approach to calculus. Algebraic concepts receive an unusually strong emphasis. Numerous exercises appear throughout the text. 1951 edition.

One of the best available works on matrix theory in the context of modern algebra, this text bridges the gap between ordinary undergraduate studies and completely abstract mathematics. 1952 edition.

Examines general Cartesian coordinates, the cross product, Einstein's special theory of relativity, bases in general coordinate systems, maxima and minima of functions of two variables, line integrals, integral theorems, and more. 1963 edition.

Covers determinants, linear spaces, systems of linear equations, linear functions of a vector argument, coordinate transformations, the canonical form of the matrix of a linear operator, bilinear and quadratic forms, Euclidean spaces, unitary spaces, quadratic forms in Euclidean and unitary spaces, finite-dimensional space. Problems with hints and answers.

Rigorous, self-contained coverage of determinants, vectors, matrices and linear equations, quadratic forms, more. Elementary, easily readable account with numerous examples and problems at the end of each chapter.

Enhanced by many worked examples, problems, and solutions, this in-depth text is suitable for undergraduates and presents a great deal of information previously only available in specialized and hard-to-find texts. 1981 edition.

Undergraduate-level introduction to linear algebra and matrix theory. Explores matrices and linear systems, vector spaces, determinants, spectral decomposition, Jordan canonical form, much more. Over 375 problems. Selected answers. 1972 edition.

Clear, correct summation of basic results on general behavior of infinite matrices features three introductory chapters leading to applications related to summability of divergent sequences and series. Nearly 200 examples. 1950 edition.

Prize-winning study traces the rise of the vector concept from the discovery of complex numbers through the systems of hypercomplex numbers to the final acceptance around 1910 of the modern system of vector analysis.

This text presents selected aspects of matrix theory that are most useful in developing computational methods for solving linear equations and finding characteristic roots. Topics include norms, bounds and convergence; localization theorems; more. 1964 edition.
