** Introduction to Linear Algebra, 5th Edition **is a foundation book that bridges both practical computation and theoretical principles. Due to its flexible table of contents, the book is accessible for both students majoring in the scientific, engineering, and social sciences, as well as students that want an introduction to mathematical abstraction and logical reasoning. In order to achieve the text's flexibility, the book centers on 3 principal topics: matrix theory and systems of linear equations, elementary vector space concepts, and the eigenvalue problem. This highly adaptable text can be used for a one-quarter or one-semester course at the sophomore/junior level, or for a more advanced class at the junior/senior level.
