**Linear Algebra and Its Applications **is a contemporary introduction with broad, relevant applications of concepts and skills for your future career. In most linear algebra texts, the early stages of the course are relatively easy as material is presented in a familiar concrete setting, but students sometimes hit a wall when abstract concepts are introduced. Certain fundamental concepts such as linear independence, vector space and linear transformations require time to digest, and your grasp of them is essential to succeed in the course. To address this, the authors make these concepts more accessible by introducing them early in a familiar, concrete *R** ^{n}* setting, developing them gradually, and returning to them throughout the text so that you can understand them when they are discussed in the abstract. The

**6th Edition**offers new material, examples and online resources, along with new topics, vignettes and applications.
