** **This book describes basic methods and algorithms used in modern, real problems likely to be encountered by engineers and scientists - and fosters an understanding of why mathematical techniques work and how they can be derived from first principles. ** ** Assumes no previous exposure to linear algebra. Presents applications hand in hand with theory, leading readers through the reasoning that leads to the important results. Provides theorems and proofs where needed. Features abundant exercises after almost every subsection, in a wide range of difficulty. ** ** A thorough reference for engineers and scientists.

**Some Quotes from Reviewers**

“The material on the concept of a general vector space, linear independence, basis, etc. is always difficult for students in this course. This book handles it very well. It gives full, clear explanations. The style is very good, clear, and thorough. It should appeal to my students. I like the book very much. It subscribes to the same philosophy of linear algebra as pioneered by Strang some 30 years ago (acknowledged in the introduction) and builds on the Strang books, making things even clearer and adding more topics. I would certainly like to use this book and would recommend it to my colleagues.”

**-Bruno Harris, Brown University**

“I like the book very much. We will consider it for our linear algebra courses. This is the best new book to appear since the text by Gilbert Strang. It is really modern book, combining, in a masterful, core and applied aspects of linear algebra. This is a very good book written by a very good mathematician and a very good teacher.”

**-Juan J. Manfredi, University of Pittsburgh**

“In many, if not most, beginning texts of linear algebra, the applications may be collected together in a chapter at the end of the book or in an appendix, leaving any inclusion of this material to the discretion of the instructor. However, *Applied Linear Algebra* by Olver and Shakiban completely reverses this procedure with a total integration of the application with the abstract theory. The effect on the reader is quite amazing. The reader slowly begins to realize two main points: (1) how applications generally drive the abstract theory, and (2) how the abstract theory can illuminate the applications, and resolve solutions in very striking ways.

This text is easily the best beginning linear algebra text dealing with the applications in an integrated way that I have seen. There is no doubt that this text will be the standard to which all beginning linear algebra texts will be compared. Simply put, this is an absolutely wonderful text!”

**-Norman Johnson, University of Iowa**

“I lover the style of this book, especially the fact that you could feel the authors’ enthusiasm about the nice mathematics involved in the theory. The examples were very clear and interesting, and they always tried to approach the same problems over and over again as soon sas they had more weapons at their disposal to attack them. I thought this was great, this text introduces the notion of an abstract space very early (still, after Gaussian Elimination) and in a very natural way, then emphasizes along the way over and over again that tremendously. I would absolutely consider this text. I was really taken by the applications and the organization of the materials. I also loved the abundance of exercises and problems.”

**-Tamas Wiandt, Rochester Institute of Technology**

“This text is very well-written, has lots of examples, and is easy to read and learn from. I’d use it in my Matrix Methods class. There is a good mixture of routine and more advanced examples.”

**-James Curry, University of Colorado-Boulder**

** **

“I believe the writing style would appeal to my students because of the clarity and the examples, as well as the tone. I am going to consider its use, once I see its final form.”

**-Fabio Augusto Miner, Purdue University**
