This complete and coherent exposition, complemented by numerous illustrative examples, offers readers a text that can teach by itself. Fully rigorous in its treatment, it offers a mathematically sound sequencing of topics. The work starts with the most basic laws of matrix algebra and progresses to the sweep-out process for obtaining the complete solution of any given system of linear equations a homogeneous or nonhomogeneous a and the role of matrix algebra in the presentation of useful geometric ideas, techniques, and terminology. Other subjects include the complete treatment of the structure of the solution space of a system of linear equations, the most commonly used properties of determinants, and linear operators and linear transformations of coordinates. Considerably more material than can be offered in a one-semester course appears here; this comprehensive volume by Franz E. Hohn, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Illinois for many years, provides instructors with a wide range of choices in order to meet differing interests and to accommodate students with varying backgrounds.Intended for students who have already completed a one-year course in elementary calculus, this two-part treatment advances from functions of one ... covers all undergraduate algebra topics, including groups, rings, modules, Galois theory, polynomials, linear algebra, and associative algebra. ...
