This book avoids the traditional definition-theorem-proof format; instead a fresh approach introduces a variety of problems and examples all in a clear and informal style. The in-depth focus on applications separates this book from others, and helps students to see how linear algebra can be applied to real-life situations. Some of the more contemporary topics of applied linear algebra are included here which are not normally found in undergraduate textbooks. Theoretical developments are always accompanied with detailed examples, and each section ends with a number of exercises from which students can gain further insight. Moreover, the inclusion of historical information provides personal insights into the mathematicians who developed this subject. The textbook contains numerous examples and exercises, historical notes, and comments on numerical performance and the possible pitfalls of algorithms. Solutions to all of the exercises are provided, as well as a CD-ROM containing a searchable copy of the textbook.

This text is a traditional linear algebra book designed to prepare students in mathematics, science, and engineering to deal with a broad range of applications. The coverage is very broad so that it will appeal to professors teaching at the junior-senior to beginning graduate level. Because of the broad coverage, it has more flexibility than many texts. There is enough material so that professors can pick and choose topics depending on the level of a particular class, and enough depth so that it can be tailored to many different courses. Meyer begins at an introductory level and progresses to topics more appropriate for a first year graduate course.
