This book provides students with the rudiments of Linear Algebra, a fundamental subject for students in all areas of science and technology. The book would also be good for statistics students studying linear algebra.

It is the translation of a successful textbook currently being used in Italy. The author is a mathematician sensitive to the needs of a general audience.

In addition to introducing fundamental ideas in Linear Algebra through a wide variety of interesting examples, the book also discusses topics not usually covered in an elementary text (e.g. the "cost" of operations, generalized inverses, approximate solutions). The challenge is to show why the "everyone" in the title can find Linear Algebra useful and easy to learn.

The translation has been prepared by a native English speaking mathematician, Professor Anthony V. Geramita.

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"The author's intention was to write an introductory linear algebra text for students studying disciplines that use this subject matter as a tool. . All topics introduced are given a concrete basis in reality by use of well-chosen examples. . Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates." (D. S. Larson, Choice, Vol. 49 (2), October, 2011)"This is a conventional introduction to matrices that the author has attempted to make more accessible by garnishing it with palindromes, jokes, and aphorisms. It is a translation of the 2007 Italian-language work Algebra Lineare per tutti . . The translation is smooth and easy to read . . The book takes a very concrete approach. . the work is in fact aimed at linear algebra students . ." (Allen Stenger, The Mathematical Association of America, June, 2011)
