Up to 2 WeeksUsually despatched within 2 weeks


For a one-semester introductory course. Although the text has been developed in the context of engineering and physical science, it is also suitable for computer science students, math majors, and other quantitative fields.The most carefully written and clearest written text in linear algebra, motivates students in applied areas by placing linear algebra in context through current applications, anecdotes and historical references. Although it may be used without machine computation, the use of MATLAB is encouraged in a unique and innovative way.
