Introduction to Linear Algebra (3rd Edition) - Gilbert Strang
Gilbert Strang's textbooks have changed the entire approach to learning linear algebra -- away from abstract vector spaces to specific examples of the four fundamental subspaces: the column space and nullspace of A and A'.
Introduction to Linear Algebra, Fourth Edition includes challenge problems to complement the review problems that have been highly praised in previous editions. The basic course is followed by seven applications: differential equations, engineering, graph theory, statistics, fourier methods and the FFT, linear programming, and computer graphics.
Thousands of teachers in colleges and universities and now high schools are using this book, which truly explains this crucial subject.

Gilbert Strang is a Professor of Mathematics at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and an Honorary Fellow of Balliol College, of the University of Oxford, UK. His current research interests include linear algebra, wavelets and filter banks, applied mathematics, and engineering mathematics. He is the author or co-author of six textbooks and has published a monograph with George Fix titled Â“An Analysis of the Finite Element Method.Â” Professor Strang served as SIAMÂ’s president from 1999-2000, chaired the U.S. National Committee on Mathematics from 2003Â–2004, and won the Neumann Medal of the US Association of Computational Mechanics in 2005. He is a fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
