It is common for Departments of Mathematics to offer a junior-senior level course on Linear Algebra. This book represents one possible course. It evolved from my teaching a junior level course at Texas A&M University during the several years I taught after I served as President. I am deeply grateful to the A&M Department of Mathematics for allowing this Mechanical Engineer to teach their students.
This book is influenced by my earlier textbook with C.-C Wang, Introductions to Vectors and Tensors, Linear and Multilinear Algebra. This book is more elementary and is more applied than the earlier book. However, my impression is that this book presents linear algebra in a form that is somewhat more advanced than one finds in contemporary undergraduate linear algebra courses. In any case, my classroom experience with this book is that it was well received by most students. As usual with the development of a textbook, the students that endured its evolution are due a statement of gratitude for their help.
