Now in its third edition, this well-written book deals almost exclusively with real finite-dimensional vector spaces, but in a setting and formulation that permits easy generalization to abstract vector spaces. The book offers a compact and mathematically clean introduction to linear algebra with particular emphasis on topics that are used in the theory of differential equations. 23 illus.
