**Linear Algebra And Its Applications 5th Edition Pdf** | **Linear Algebra PDF**

### Overview

These subjects include matrix algebra, vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, symmetric matrices, linear transformations, and more.Mathematics professOrs David C. Lay, Steven R. Lay, and Judi J. McDonald clearly guide learners through abstract algebraic topics.

However, when abstract concepts are introduced, student often hit a wall. Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts (such as linear independence, spanning, subspace, vector space, and linear transformation) are not easily understood and require time to assimilate. These concept are fundamental to the study of linear algebra, so students’ understanding of them is vital to mastering the subject. This text makes these concepts more accessible by introducing them early in a familiar, concrete setting, developing them gradually, and returning to them throughout the text so that when they are discussed in the abstract, student are readily able to understand.

### Review

The only textbook I have sat down and can read like a novel.

“I am taking my first dedicated course in Linear Algebra. This is, seriously, the only textbook I have sat down and can read like a novel. Very well structured, very focused on explaining the subject matter. Obviously you need a base of skills in algebra, but you can definately learn the topic with this book alone.”

– WilLiam’s Bates

Great book for those new to

linear algebra.This is a great

introduction to linear algebrafor students and those with practical uses for it.

### About the Author

David C. Lay holds a B.A. from Aurora University, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of California at Los Angeles. David Lay has been an educator and research mathematician since 1966, mostly at the University of Maryland, College Park.

He has also served as a visiting professor at the University of Amsterdam, the free University in Amsterdam, and the University of Kaiserslautern, Germany. He has published more than 30 research articles on functional analysis and linear algebra. As a founding member of the NSF Sponsored Linear Algebra Curriculum Study Group, David Lay has been a leader in the current movement to modernize the linear algebra curriculum. Lay is also a coauthor of several mathematics text, including introduction to functional Analysis with Angus E. Taylor, Calculus and it’s applications, with L. J. Goldstein and D. I. Schneider, and Linear Algebra Gems Assets for Undergraduate Mathematics, with D. Carlson, C.R. Johnson, and A.D. Porter. David Lay has received four University awards for teaching excellence, including, in 1996, the title of Distinguished Scholar Teacher of University of Maryland.

Steven R. Lay began his teaching career at Aurora University in 1971, after earning an M.A. and a Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of California at Los Angeles. His career in mathematics was interrupted for eight years while serving as a missionary in japan. Upon his return to the states in 1998, he joined the mathematics faculty at Lee University and has been there ever since.

Since then he has supported his brother David in refining and expanding the scope of this popular linear algebra text, including writing most of Chapters 8 and 9. Steven is also the author of three college level mathematics text: Convex Sets and Their Applications, Analysis with an Introduction go proof, and principles of Algebra. In 1985, Steven received the Excellence in Teaching Award at Aurora University.

Judi J. McDonald joins the authorship team after working closely with David on the fourth edition. She holds a B.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Alberta, and an M.A. and Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin. She is currently a professor at Washington State University. She has been an educator and research mathematician since the early 90s. She has more than 35 publications in linear algebra research journals. Sevral undergraduate and graduate students have written projects or theses on linear algebra under Judi’s supervision.
