Elementary Linear Algebra develops and explains in careful detail the computational techniques and fundamental theoretical results central to a first course in linear algebra. This highly acclaimed text focuses on developing the abstract thinking essential for further mathematical study. The authors give early, intensive attention to the skills necessary to make students comfortable with mathematical proofs. The text builds a gradual and smooth transition from computational results to general theory of abstract vector spaces.

Elementary Linear Algebra, 5th edition, by Stephen Andrilli and David Hecker, is a textbook for a beginning course in linear algebra for sophomore or junior mathematics majors. This text provides a solid introduction to both the computational and theoretical aspects of linear algebra.
The textbook covers many important real-world applications of linear algebra, including graph theory, circuit theory, Markov chains, elementary coding theory, least-squares polynomials and least-squares solutions for inconsistent systems, differential equations, computer graphics and quadratic forms. Also, many computational techniques in linear algebra are presented, including iterative methods for solving linear systems, LDU Decomposition, the Power Method for finding eigenvalues, QR Decomposition, and Singular Value Decomposition and its usefulness in digital imaging.
The most unique feature of the text is that students are nurtured in the art of creating mathematical proofs using linear algebra as the underlying context. The text contains a large number of worked out examples, as well as more than exercises with over total questions to give students practice in both the computational aspects of the course and in developing their proof-writing abilities.

Elementary Linear Algebra
Linear Algebra is a subject taught in the service of several masters. A craving for the abstractness of vector spaces and a desire to showcase the art of proof tugs against a desire for computational tools. In classical terms, this dichotomy is often framed as offering a course for students of mathematics versus a course for students of engineering. These two texts display the broad range of approaches one might take to a linear algebra course. This stems from their focus on providing numerous exercises and plenty of examples.
