Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This book is written for a standard first course in linear algebra, taught and learned with MATHEMATICA. Development of analytical and computational skills is emphasized, and worked examples provide step-by-step methods for solving basic problems using MATHEMATICA.
Linear algebra's rich pertinence to problem-solving across disciplines is illustrated with applications in engineering, the natural sciences, computer animation, an statistics. Topic coverage includes linear systems, matrix algebra, determinants, real vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, vector and matrix norms, inner products, orthogonality, and singular valuedecoposition. The book's matrix-based approach has been extensively classroom tested.

Fred E. Szabo is professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Concordia University in Canada. He completed his undergraduate studies at Oxford University under the guidance of Sir Michael Dummett and received a Ph.D. in mathematics from McGill University under the supervision of Joachim Lambek. After postdoctoral studies at Oxford University and visiting professorships at several European universities, he returned to Concordia University as a faculty member and dean of graduate studies. For more than twenty years, he developed methods for the teaching of mathematics with technology. In 2012 he was honored at the annual Wolfram Technology Conference for his work on "A New Kind of Learning" with a Wolfram Innovator Award. He is currently professor and Provost Fellow at Concordia University.

Format: Hardcover
This is a modern interpretation of Linear Algebra that effectively uses Mathematica to illustrate concepts and bring them to life. At the same time, rigor and theory are not sacrificed in any way. In fact, detailed yet easy-to-read proofs are ubiquitous, and are almost always accompanied by examples using the software.
The book comes full circle in the finale with an exposition of the SVD. In the process, it brings together concepts described throughout the book.
In summary: As a working professional in computer imaging, I enjoy this book as my standard linear algebra text. It is a thematic book that really drives the point home, truly giving worth to the suggestion that the SVD should be called the fundamental theorem of linear algebra.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The edition dated 2009 is not a second edition. It is a reprint of the hardcover 1999 or 2000 editions targeting Mathematica 3. While the text contains helpful applications of linear algebra to chemistry and electronics, references to deprecated features of Mathematica make the learning experience expensive in time and one resorts to the bundled or online documentation of Mathematica anyway. Images of the user interface are a little grainy and dark, while pictures of gui elements such as palettes are plain awful.
I understand one can still use the book to augur some sense out of Mathematica 7+in regards to Linear Algebra but I would of hoped that the books "currentness" was a little more advertised and a little less expensive.
