The author's narrative presentation is enriched by the interactive use of Maple. Programming and computational complexity are kept to a minimum. Szabo uses Maple's symbolic and numerical calculation capabilities to distinguish between exact and approximate solutions of mathematical problems. Linear Algebra: An Introduction Using Maple provides a uniquely concrete foundation for the fundamental issue of linear algebra: solving linear systems.
"It does a great job of teaching the student how real people solve real linear algebra problems (by computer), frees up time for conceptual issues, and allows real experimentation by the student so they can feel comfortable with the concepts."
-Todd Arbogast, University of Texas, Austin
"The book reads easily....What I liked most is that he weaves in from the beginning basic concepts like determinants and eigenvalues, not waiting for a formal introduction of them, and thus being able to discuss early on a variety of interesting examples...In this way, the whole presentation of the book forms a unity, as opposed to the presentation of disconnected chapters."
-Karen Reinhold, State University of New York at Albany.
"This is an excellent modern text...I really like this book and I will use it enthusiastically."
