Six Great Theorems/Linear Algebra in a Nutshell.
This book is designed to help students understand and solve the four central problems of linear algebra:
Ax = b  n by n  Chapters 12  Linear systems 
Ax = b  m by n  Chapters 34  Least squares 
Ax = λx  n by n  Chapters 56  Eigenvalues 
Av = σu  m by n  Chapters 78  Singular values 
The diagram on the front cover shows the four fundamental subspaces for the matrix A. Those subspaces lead to the Fundamental Theorem of Linear Algebra:
