Linear Algebra: Free PDF

Linear Algebra

Linear Algebra, by David Cherney, Tom Denton, and Andrew Waldron, is a free linear algebra textbook available in pdf format.


This textbook is suitable for a sophomore level linear algebra course taught in about twenty-five lectures. It is designed both for engineering and science majors, but has enough abstraction to be useful for potential math majors. Our goal in writing it was to produce students who can perform computations with linear systems and also understand the concepts behind these computations.
