Intended for a serious first course or a second course, this textbook will carry students beyond eigenvalues and eigenvectors to the classification of bilinear forms, to normal matrices, to spectral decompositions, and to the Jordan form. The authors approach their subject in a comprehensive and accessible manner, presenting notation and terminology clearly and concisely, and providing smooth transitions between topics. The examples and exercises are well designed and will aid diligent students in understanding both computational and theoretical aspects. In all, the straightest, smoothest path to the heart of linear algebra.

...the material is well-written, it will be easy to teach from, and the students will find it easy to read and study from. -Jackie Garner, University of Arkansas Jimmie and Linda Gilbert...present material at the appropriate level in a quick and concise manner....Some...texts do not develop enough mathematical sophistication to enable the transition to junior- or senior-level linear algebra courses. The Gilbert text does! --Melvyn Jeter, Illinois WesleyanUniversity The notation and terminology are clear and concise and the flow of topics and concepts is smooth. -Ed Dixon, Tennessee Technological University I am...quite enthusiastic about the arrangement of topics which the Gilberts have chosen....(The Gilberts Chapter 1 plays as a sort of overture, in which the main elements of vector space theory are laid out in a comfortable space, while due attention is paid to the role of computation. I think this type of start to a course would orient the students properly toward general vector space theory, rather than having them come upon the annoying complication of vector spaces after three or more weeks spent exclusively in computation and row reduction. -Edward Hinson, University of New Hampshire
