The cornerstone of ELEMENTARY LINEAR ALGEBRA is the authors' clear, careful, and concise presentation of material--written so that readers can fully understand how mathematics works. This program balances theory with examples, applications, and geometric intuition for a complete, step-by-step learning system. Featuring a new design that highlights the relevance of the mathematics and improves readability, the Seventh Edition also incorporates new conceptual Capstone exercises that reinforce multiple concepts in each section. Data and applications reflect current statistics and examples to engage users and demonstrate the link between theory and practice.
