Linear algebra

This book is an adaptation of the ninth edition of the best-selling title in linear algebra, Elementary Linear Algebra by Howard Anton and Chris Rorres. Noted for its expository style and clarity of presentation, this text presents an elementary treatment of the subject and addresses the changing needs of a new generation of students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of linear algebra in the clearest possible way - pedagogy being the main consideration.

Four new chapters have been included to cover the prescribed syllabus. The book includes numerous solved and unsolved problems. A section 'Technology Exercises' is also included for further exploration of the chapter's contents.
