This approach allows the familiar topic of linear systems to illuminate the abstract theory and permits us to avoid messy matrix computations in the presentation of Chapters 1 and 2. If you are an instructor thinking about using Insel Spence and Friedberg, I urge you to beware of this issue. We are especially indebted to Jane M.
The basic mathematical theory inner products; the Gram-Schmidt process; orthogonal complements; the adjoint of an operator; normal, self-adjoint, orthogonal and unitary operators; orthogonal projections; and the spectral theorem is contained in Sections 6.
This book can make you feel smarter than you are, because there are no ugly surprises in the exercise sections and each new section friedbwrg from its predecessors.
Mar 23, Xiyao rated it really liked it. The principal content change of this fourth edition is the inclusion of a new section Section 6. Would you like to tell us about a lower price? The optional sections provide only a basic overview of their topic.
East Dane Designer Men’s Fashion. No trivia or quizzes yet.
It emphasizes the symbiotic relationship between linear transformations and matrices, but states theorems in the more general infinite-dimensional case where appropriate. Yue Xiang rated it liked it Dec 12, This is really a different book. What is wrong with paperback edition?
If you read another review about the excellent treatment of Jordan Forms in this text then you should keep in mind that review is for the REAL book.
Day San Jose State University for her extensive and detailed comments on the fourth edition manuscript. The necessary background is contained in Section 1. Of course, these examples are not a part of the theoretical development. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Exercise is a must for mastering the material. Our approach is to treat this material as a generalization of our characterization of normal and self-adjoint operators. Linear transformations and their relationship to matrices are the subject of Chapter 2.
Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. Alexa Actionable Analytics for the Web. There are five appendices. Oct 13, Mom’s Books added it Shelves: Lists with This Book. Other eastern economy editions I have purchased have essentially the same content, just on strphen fancy paper. I realize the point of this book is the proofs, not the applications, but gah, I wish my university had picked a better stephfn linear textbook. Actually, I believe that students might learn linear algebra better if they used the same text for 2 semesters.
AmazonGlobal Ship Orders Internationally. Books by Stephen H. We have attempted to make it possible for many of the important topics of linear algebra to be covered in a one-semester course.
Determinants, the subject of Chapter 4, are of much less importance than they once were. There are more than enough exercises and more than enough examples. Chapter 1 of the book presents the basic theory of vector spaces: Thank you for your feedback.
To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. This is a mostly well-written book, but chapter 7 on Jordan Canonical forms is completely missing.
I sleep thru lectures and just read this and score W’s. friedbery
Linear Algebra by Stephen H. Friedberg
If you work the problems in each section, you’ll have a much better grasp of the topic as a whole. Focus on developing the theory and logic for linear algebra. Our treatment of the Jordan canonical form, for instance, does not require any theory of polynomials. Showing of 92 reviews. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
