This expanded version of the bestselling standard Sixth Edition covers the identical introductory linear algebra topics in the first ten chapters, but then goes beyond its sister publication with an additional chapter. Contained in this chapter are 20 applications of linear algebra drawn from business, economics, engineering, physics, computer science, geometry, approximation theory, ecology, sociology, demography and genetics. These applications are generally independent from each other and come with a list of mathematical prerequisites. The addition of these applications allows the instructor considerable flexibility in choosing suitable topics.
