Linear Algebra


Given the choice of a very short introduction, in which I just wanted to say that this book reproduces the content of my beginners' lecture given in Heidelberg in 1980/81, or in a perhaps excessively lengthy one the reader the structure of the work and mine To introduce the conception of linear algebra, I finally decided on the second way. Although it leaves no gaps in the logical sequence and does not skip over or inadmissibly shorten any evidence, this book is intended less for self-study than as an accompanying text to an introductory lecture in linear algebra. The readership will mainly consist of first-year students. From these I assume that they have received a solid mathematical education at the school, especially with regard to the mastery of basic arithmetic and reasoning techniques as well as solid sample material in elementary geometry. The willingness to experiment by an authority that was, up to twenty years ago, quite inexperienced in trying out contemporary scientific training forms, which is welcome, has unfortunately led to the fact that the previous education of the students who are now entering higher education institutions, especially universities, appears to be very inconsistent. It is therefore absolutely advisable not to learn the material of the basic lectures from a book alone, but if possible with the support of a lecturer; At least the libraries, which usually have a good collection of elementary textbooks, should be used intensively.
