Linear Algebra Through Geometry 2ND Editionby Thomas Banchoff
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
This book introduces the concepts of linear algebra through the careful study of two and three-dimensional Euclidean geometry. This approach makes it possible to start with vectors, linear transformations, and matrices in the context of familiar plane geometry and to move directly to topics such as dot products, determinants, eigenvalues, and quadratic forms. The later chapters deal with n-dimensional Euclidean space and other finite-dimensional vector space.
Book News Annotation:
Revised and expanded undergraduate textbook introduces the concepts of linear algebra through the careful study of two- and three-dimensional Euclidean geometry. Except for the applications in the final chapter, the only prerequisites are high-school geometry, algebra, and introductory trigonometry.
