SUMMARY

In the second edition of this popular and successful text the number of exercises has been drastically increased (to a minimum of 25 per chapter); also a new chapter on the Jordan normal form has been added. These changes do not affect the character of the book as a compact but mathematically clean introduction to linear algebra with particular emphasis on topics that are used in the theory of differential equations
