Linear algebra is relatively easy for students during the early stages of the course, when the material is presented in a familiar, concrete setting. But when abstract concepts are introduced, students often hit a brick wall. Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts (such as linear independence, spanning, subspace, vector space, and linear transformations), are not easily understood, and require time to assimilate. Since they are fundamental to the study of linear algebra, students' understanding of these concepts is vital to their mastery of the subject. David Lay introduces these concepts early in a familiar, concrete Rn setting, develops them gradually, and returns to them again and again throughout the text so that when discussed in the abstract, these concepts are more accessible.

Praise for the First Edition ". . .recommended for the teacher and researcher as well as for graduate students. In fact, [it] has a place on every mathematician′s bookshelf." –American Mathematical Monthly Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition presents linear algebra as the theory and practice of linear spaces and linear maps with a unique focus on the analytical aspects as well as the numerous applications of the subject. In addition to thorough coverage of linear equations, matrices, vector spaces, game theory, and numerical analysis, the Second Edition features student–friendly additions that enhance the book′s accessibility, including expanded topical coverage in the early chapters, additional exercises, and solutions to selected problems. Beginning chapters are devoted to the abstract structure of finite dimensional vector spaces, and subsequent chapters address convexity and the duality theorem as well as describe the basics of normed linear spaces and linear maps between normed spaces. Further updates and revisions have been included to reflect the most up–to–date coverage of the topic, including: The QR algorithm for finding the eigenvalues of a self–adjoint matrix The Householder algorithm for turning self–adjoint matrices into tridiagonal form The compactness of the unit ball as a criterion of finite dimensionality of a normed linear space Additionally, eight new appendices have been added and cover topics such as: the Fast Fourier Transform; the spectral radius theorem; the Lorentz group; the compactness criterion for finite dimensionality; the characterization of commentators; proof of Liapunov′s stability criterion; the construction of the Jordan Canonical form of matrices; and Carl Pearcy′s elegant proof of Halmos′ conjecture about the numerical range of matrices. Clear, concise, and superbly organized, Linear Algebra and Its Applications, Second Edition serves as an excellent text for advanced undergraduate– and graduate–level courses in linear algebra. Its comprehensive treatment of the subject also makes it an ideal reference or self–study for industry professionals.

This Student Solutions Manual to Accompany Linear Algebra: Ideas and Applications, Fourth Edition contains solutions to the odd numbered problems to further aid in reader comprehension, and an Instructor's Solutions Manual (inclusive of suggested syllabi) is available via written request to the Publisher. Both the Student and Instructor Manuals have been enhanced with further discussions of the applications sections, which is ideal for readers who wish to obtain a deeper knowledge than that provided by pure algorithmic approaches. Linear Algebra: Ideas and Applications, Fourth Edition provides a unified introduction to linear algebra while reinforcing and emphasizing a conceptual and hands-on understanding of the essential ideas. Promoting the development of intuition rather than the simple application of methods, this book successfully helps readers to understand not only how to implement a technique, but why its use is important.

The Handbook of Mathematics for Engineers and Scientists covers the main fields of mathematics and focuses on the methods used for obtaining solutions of various classes of mathematical equations that underlie the mathematical modeling of numerous phenomena and processes in science and technology. To accommodate different mathematical backgrounds, the preeminent authors outline the material in a simplified, schematic manner, avoiding special terminology wherever possible. Organized in ascending order of complexity, the material is divided into two parts. The first part is a coherent survey of the most important definitions, formulas, equations, methods, and theorems. It covers arithmetic, elementary and analytic geometry, algebra, differential and integral calculus, special functions, calculus of variations, and probability theory. Numerous specific examples clarify the methods for solving problems and equations. The second part provides many in-depth mathematical tables, including those of exact solutions of various types of equations. This concise, comprehensive compendium of mathematical definitions, formulas, and theorems provides the foundation for exploring scientific and technological phenomena.

While already validated by the scientific community, multimodal narratives have the potential for a broader application, especially for improved teaching practices from a professional or a theoretical point of view. Applying multimodal narratives within professional development courses creates a focus on the teaching practices rather than the content itself. Multimodal Narratives in Research and Teaching Practices provides educator and researcher perspectives on the use of multimodal narratives as a tool to reflect and improve teaching practices. Covering such topics as professional development, online learning, and teacher education, this publication is designed for educators, academicians, administrators, and researchers.

Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value Problems 11e, like its predecessors, is written from the viewpoint of the applied mathematician, whose interest in differential equations may sometimes be quite theoretical, sometimes intensely practical, and often somewhere in between. The authors have sought to combine a sound and accurate (but not abstract) exposition of the elementary theory of differential equations with considerable material on methods of solution, analysis, and approximation that have proved useful in a wide variety of applications. While the general structure of the book remains unchanged, some notable changes have been made to improve the clarity and readability of basic material about differential equations and their applications. In addition to expanded explanations, the 11th edition includes new problems, updated figures and examples to help motivate students. The program is primarily intended for undergraduate students of mathematics, science, or engineering, who typically take a course on differential equations during their first or second year of study. The main prerequisite for engaging with the program is a working knowledge of calculus, gained from a normal two? or three? semester course sequence or its equivalent. Some familiarity with matrices will also be helpful in the chapters on systems of differential equations.
