Intended for a first course on the subject, this text begins from scratch and develops the standard topics of Linear Algebra. Its progresses simply towards its ultimate goal, the Theorem of Hurwitz, which argues that the only normed algebras over the real numbers are the real numbers, the complex numbers, the quaternions, and the octonions. The book stresses the complete logical development of the subject.
