Essays in Linear Algebra Author : Gilbert Strang Publisher : Wellesley-Cambridge Press Total Pages : 340 Release : 2012-04-26 ISBN 10 : 0980232767 ISBN 13 : 9780980232769 Language : EN, FR, DE, ES & NL GET BOOK Essays in Linear Algebra Book Description: The renowned mathematician and educator Gilbert Strang presents a collection of expository papers on the theory and applications of linear algebra, accompanied by video lectures on http://ocw.mit.edu. The essays are diverse in scope and range from purely theoretical studies on deep fundamental principles of matrix algebra to discussions on the teaching of calculus and an examination of the mathematical foundations of aspects of computational engineering. One thing these essays have in common is the way that they express both the importance and the beauty of the subject, as well as the author's passion for mathematics. This text will be of practical use to students and researchers across a whole spectrum of numerate disciplines. Furthermore, this collection provides a unique perspective on mathematics and the communication thereof as a human endeavour, complemented as these essays are by commentary from the author regarding their provenance and the reaction to them.
