The Linear Algebra Survival Guide offers a concise introduction to the difficult core topics of linear algebra, guiding you through the powerful graphic displays and visualization of Mathematica that make the most abstract theories seem simple - allowing you to tackle realistic problems using simple mathematical manipulations. This resource is therefore a guide to learning the content of Mathematica in a practical way, enabling you to manipulate potential solutions/outcomes, and learn creatively. No starting knowledge of the Mathematica system is required to use the book. Desktop, laptop, web-based versions of Mathematica are available on all major platforms. Mathematica Online for tablet and smartphone systems are also under development and increases the reach of the guide as a general reference, teaching and learning tool. Includes computational oriented information that complements the essential topics in linear algebra. Presents core topics in a simple, straightforward way with examples for exploring computational illustrations, graphics, and displays using Mathematica. Provides numerous examples of short code in the text, which can be modified for use with exercises to develop graphics displays for teaching, learning, and demonstrations.
