Elementary Linear Algebra Applications provides an introduction to linear algebra that is appropriate as a first course for undergraduates. The purpose of the text is to present the basics of linear algebra in the clearest way, with instruction as the primary consideration.
A previous class in calculus is recommended, but it is not a formal requirement. However, the text includes labeled exercises and examples for students who have had a course in calculus.
Elementary Linear Algebra Applications sets forth the basic tenets of linear algebra with clarity and simplicity. The text examines the main ideas of computational examples and geometrical interpretation. The book is configured to proceed from familiar to unfamiliar concepts, and delivers concise explanations of each section.
Elementary Linear Algebra 11th Edition comes with WileyPLUS, which gives access to a version of the textbook that can be accessed online, as well as a complete set of tools that can be used for study to help you pass your tests. WileyPLUS provides a variety of questions along with immediate feedback to make each study session lucrative. Elementary Linear Algebra Applications Version 11th Edition by Howard and Chris Rorres was published November 12, 2013.
• Visualization is emphasized, as well as the geometric aspects of various topics, to help visual learners, and to provide an extra means of understanding.
• Increase your mathematical logistic skills and understanding of proofs by providing answers for proof steps in some exercises.
• Emphasizes relationships between concepts. Improves your perception of linear algebra as a comprehensive subject by constantly returning to the integration of relationships between equations, matrices, determinants, vectors, and linear transformations.
• A heavy emphasis is placed on day-to-day life examples, and it is full of exercises and examples which are explained clearly.
• Access to WileyPLUS is included. WileyPLUS contains a wealth of interactive resources.
Howard Anton earned his B.A. at Lehigh, his M.A. from Illinois University, and his doctorate the University of Brooklyn. He joined the Mathematics Department at Drexel University in 1968, and taught full time for 18 years. Most of his time since then has been spent writing textbooks and composing activities for mathematics associations. Dr. Anton was president of the EPADEL Section of the MAA (Mathematical Association of America), where he was among the Board of Governors. He also helped to create the Student Chapters of the MAA. Currently, there are more than 175 different versions of his books, and they have been translated into many different languages.
Chris Rorres received his undergraduate degree at Drexel, and his doctorate from the Courant Institute. He was a member of the mathematics faculty of Department at Drexel University for more than 30 years. At Drexel, in addition to his teaching duties, he performed applied research in solar engineering, acoustic scattering, population dynamics, and computer system reliability, geometry of archaeological sites, optimal animal harvesting policies, and decision theory. Chris Rorres retired from Drexel in 2001 as a Professor Emeritus of Mathematics, and he is now a mathematics consultant.
Elementary Linear Algebra Applications Version 11th Edition is the great introduction to linear algebra for undergraduate students.
