As a basis of equation and problem-solving, linear algebra is the most widely taught sub-division of pure mathematics. Building on both skills and knowledge attained during A-level and earlier degree modules in linear algebra, "Matrices and Quadratic Forms" provides a lively and accessible introduction to matrices and quadratic forms. Examples and exercises are used as teaching aids throughout and ideas for investigation and project work help to place the subject in context. Student motivation and learning is encouraged by the inclusion of historical contexts, real-life situations and the discussion of links with other areas of mathematics. Providing a concise and thorough introduction to matrices and quadratic forms, this is an essential purchase for all students of mathematics.



Ideal second text in linear algebra, this book follows on from Allenby's Linear Algebra.
Concise and affordable.
Written in a straightforward and accessible style by an authority in the field.
