This book, consisting of five chapters, contains 244 problems in linear algebra. The topics covered are: systems of linear equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, linear, bilinear and quadratic forms, Euclidean vector spaces and convex sets. Each chapter is divided into four parts: definitions and basic results (I), solved problems (II), additional problems (III), hints and answers for additional problems (IV). There is a table of contents, bibliography and an index, which permit easy location of a special topic and also a quick access to the hints and solutions. The book is mainly addressed to undergraduate students in mathematics as a companion and complement to the basic course in Linear Algebra, but may also be a valuable tool for the undergraduate and graduate students in engineering, computer science, economics and the natural sciences.

The book presents the universal method for solving problems of linear algebra - the method of elementary transformations of matrices. It is shown in numerous examples how to solve the basic problems of linear algebra: solving systems of linear equations, calculation of the inverse matrix, linear dependence and span of vector systems, finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a linear operator, kernel and image of a linear operator, bringing a polynomial matrix to a canonical form, finding the Jordan and the Frobenius forms of the matrix, reduction of a quadratic form to a sum of squares, various types of decomposition of matrices, finding an orthogonal basis of the subspace spanned by the given vector system, etc. The book is intended for students, studying the university course of linear algebra, as well as for teachers, conducting practical classes on the subject.

This self-contained introduction to numerical linear algebra provides a comprehensive, yet concise, overview of the subject. It includes standard material such as direct methods for solving linear systems and least-squares problems, error, stability and conditioning, basic iterative methods and the calculation of eigenvalues. Later chapters cover more advanced material, such as Krylov subspace methods, multigrid methods, domain decomposition methods, multipole expansions, hierarchical matrices and compressed sensing. The book provides rigorous mathematical proofs throughout, and gives algorithms in general-purpose language-independent form. Requiring only a solid knowledge in linear algebra and basic analysis, this book will be useful for applied mathematicians, engineers, computer scientists, and all those interested in efficiently solving linear problems.

The aim of this research was to investigate the level of conceptual and procedural understanding of linear algebra concepts among first and second year university students. An initial pilot study provided enough evidence, to convince the researcher to design a theoretical framework to pursue an alternative approach for the teaching and learning of a group of linear algebra concepts. Based on the methodology a number of case studies were carried out and the outcome from the tests, interviews and concept maps were analysed. It is important to note that, it is not the intention of this study to generalise these findings for all the mathematics students of this, or any other university. However, the results indicate strong reasons for proposing further investigation in teaching and learning of linear algebra concepts.

Linear algebra is a fundamental tool in many fields, including mathematics and statistics, computer science, economics, and the physical and biological sciences. This undergraduate textbook offers a complete second course in linear algebra, tailored to help students transition from basic theory to advanced topics and applications. Concise chapters promote a focused progression through essential ideas, and contain many examples and illustrative graphics. In addition, each chapter contains a bullet list summarising important concepts, and the book includes over 600 exercises to aid the reader's understanding. Topics are derived and discussed in detail, including the singular value decomposition, the Jordan canonical form, the spectral theorem, the QR factorization, normal matrices, Hermitian matrices (of interest to physics students), and positive definite matrices (of interest to statistics students).

A derivation is a function on an algebra which generalizes certain features of the derivative operator. Specifically, given an algebra A over a ring or field K, an K-derivation is an K-linear map D from A to itself that satisfies Leibniz's law: D(ab)=(Da)b+a(Db). More generally, an K-linear map D of A into an A-module M, satisfying the Leibniz law is also called a derivation. The collection of all K-derivation of A to itself is denoted by Der(A). The collection of K-derivations of A into an A-module M is denoted by Der(A,M). Derivations occur in many different contexts in diverse areas of mathematics. If the algebra A is noncommutative, then the commutator with respect to an element of the algebra A defines a linear endomorphism of A to itself, which is a derivation over K. Furthermore, the K-module Der(A) forms a Lie algebra with respect to Lie bracket defined by the commutator: [D1,D2]=D1 D2 - D2 D1. In this book we deal with the derivations of Leibniz algebras. The Leibniz algebra is a generalization of Lie algebra, so it makes sense to study the problems related to Lie algebras for the class of Leibniz algebras.
