## Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition (Hardback)"The outlook of the second edition is the same as that of the original: to present linear algebra as the theory and practice of linear equations and linear mappings. Where it aids understandings and calculations, I don't hesitate to describe vectors as arrays of numbers and describe mappings as matrices."—by the author, from the Preface ## $41.49 |
