  • covers all the standard topics in an elementary linear algebra — plus modern applications, computer problems, and numerical computations — but is designed so that calculus is NOT a prerequisite.
  • uses crisp language that makes mathematics accessible without loss of rigor.
  • motivates readers by demonstrating the power of linear algebra as a problem-solving tool.
  • illustrates all the basic ideas of linear algebra by means of computational examples and geometric interpretations.
  • features realistic, self-contained applications.
  • contains BASIC programs — simplified versions of programs that are available on a computer diskette.
  • provides ample numbers of ALL types of problems — from routine computational exercises to intriguing applications — at all levels of difficulty.
