A First Course in Linear Algebra is an introductory textbook designed for university sophomores and juniors. Typically such a student will have taken calculus, but this is not a prerequisite. The book begins with systems of linear equations, then covers matrix algebra, before taking up finite-dimensional vector spaces in full generality. The final chapter covers matrix representations of linear transformations, through diagonalization, change of basis and Jordan canonical form. Along the way, determinants and eigenvalues get fair time. There is a comprehensive online edition and PDF versions are available to download for printing or on-screen viewing. Physical copies may be purchased from the print-on-demand service at Lulu.

A First Course in Linear Algebra provides an introduction to the algebra and geometry of vectors, matrices, and linear transformations. This book is designed as a background for second-year courses in calculus of several variables and differential equations where the theory of linear differential equations parallels that of linear algebraic equations. The topics discussed include the multiplication of vectors by scalars, vectors in n-space, planes and lines, and composites of linear mappings. The symmetric matrices and mappings, quadratic forms, change of coordinates, and effect of change of basis on matrices of linear functions are also described. This text likewise considers the computation of determinants, diagonalizable transformations, computation of eigenvalues and eigenvectors, and principal axis theorem.

There are a large number of examples and exercises, many with answers provided, although some sections lack sufficient exercises covering basic concepts.
