Linear Algebra Thoroughly Explained

M373 ( Optimization ) renewed my interest in Linear Algebra which always has been one of my favorite branches in mathematics. Unfortunately I never got any further with it then the standard course up to Eigenvectors. Benedict Gross said in one of his lectures "You can't learn too much Linear Algebra." I suppose that he meant that any investment in learning more Linear Algebra always pays off. Quite a few books on advanced linear algebra have been published, understandably most of them by algebraists which doesn't make these books very accessible, let alone of any practical value. I recently discovered a book called Linear Algebra Thoroughly Explained by Milan Vujicic and published by Springer in 2008. From the foreword: "There are a zillion books on linear algebra, yet this one finds its own unique place among them." The book introduces Complex Inner-product Vector Spaces, new methods for solving linear systems, Dual Spaces, Tensor Products and a lot more.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
