Excellent summary

I wanted to brush up on Eigenvalues for a compression algorithm and this was the perfect way to efficienctly recall everything from college. Very useful and succinct.

Great study guide / reference book!

I really, really don't like learning mathematics, but unfortunately some maths is required by my university's computer science course.If you're a person like me who can't understand any of the stuff in your mathematics professor's cryptic notes, then I strongly advise you to buy this book. It's very easy to read (for a maths book), has examples explaining everything, and it's dirt cheap compared to the hardcore maths books out there which often contain too much information for a (undergraduate) student's needs! It has made studying and understanding linear algebra easy (as the title says), and it also got me through the exam the first time.Here's what this book covers:Chapter 1: Vectors in RnChapter 2: Algebra of MatricesChapter 3: Systems of Linear EquationsChapter 4: Vector SpacesChapter 5: Inner Product Spaces; OrthogonalityChapter 6: DeterminantsChapter 7: Diagonalisation: Eigenvalues and EigenvectorsChapter 8: Linear MappingsChapter 9: Canonical Forms(this little book is, unlike the information given here, 156 pages long)

Schaum's Linear Algebra

This work has excellent coverage of matrix addition, subtraction,multiplication and division including the inverse matrix.In addition, there are many examples of determinants. There isgood coverage of vectors, eigenvalues/eigenvectors and innerproduct spaces. The text has a good balance between theory andpractice. It is helpful for all major constituencies i.e.math majors, industrial engineers, general engineering,econometricians and many other users in the scientific arena.

Comprehensive overview of linear algebra

This book is an incredible value! It covers all major topics in the field of linear algebra, in fact, many more topics than some more expensive texts. This book has many theorems with proofs as well as example problems and applications. My only complaints about this book are that the coverage of theory is a bit terse, and the proofs to many of the theorems are found in the exercises section at the end of the chapter, rather than immediately after the theorem. The terseness means that, without prior exposure to linear algebra, it would be a bit difficult to teach yourself strictly from this book. But with a little bit of background, this book should be no trouble at all. A "real" textbook would get a lower rating for these types of complaints, but since this book costs less than $13, there is no reason not to get it.

Well Organized Supplement for College Courses.

I've found the Schaum's Outlines to be extremely helpful in my math and science related college courses. This was no exception. Think of it as a kind of Cliff's Notes if you will. It gives a brief and easily understandable explanation of the main subjects while also providing many common solved examples and shows step by step the process of solution (thereby rectifying a common failing in many texts). It then gives a large number of problems for individual practice. I highly recommend the Schaum's Outlines and in particular any which are written by Dr. Seymour Lipschutz.
