Elementary Linear Algebra with Supplemental Applications, 10/e (Paperback)

Howard Anton, Chris Rorres



Pedagogy is key in this 10th edition of Elementary Linear Algebra with Supplemental Applications. Suitable for a first course for undergraduate students, this text presents the fundamentals of linear algebra with a precise and comprehensible approach.

  • Calculus exercises are included throughout the text for students who have studied Calculus prior to taking this course.
  • Exercises that allow for use of MATLAB, Maple, or Mathematica are included for students who prefer to use these programs.
  • All problems in Chapter 10 include relevant applications of linear algebra.

    New elements presented in this edition:
  • More applications are included throughout the text.
  • A Concept Review is included at the end of each section for exam preparation.
  • Skills and True/False Exercises are listed in each chapter so students can assess their progress.
  • There is now more compact coverage of Euclidean vector spaces.
  • To highlight digital computing, Chapter 9 now focuses on numerical approaches.
