Book Description
In order not to intimidate students by a too abstract approach, this textbook on linear algebra is written to be easy to digest by nonmathematicians. It introduces the concepts of vector spaces and mappings between them without dwelling on statements such as theorems and proofs too much. It is also designed to be selfcontained, so no other material is required for an understanding of the topics covered.
As the basis for courses on space and atmospheric science, remote sensing, geographic information systems, meteorology, climate and satellite communications at UNaffiliated regional centers, various applications of the formal theory are discussed as well. These include differential equations, statistics, optimization and some engineeringmotivated problems in physics.
 Vectors
 Matrices
 Determinants
 Eigenvalues and eigenvectors
 Some applications of matrices and determinants
 Matrix series and additional properties of matrices
