Chapter 1: Introduction to Vectors;
Chapter 2: Solving Linear Equations;
Chapter 3: Vector Spaces and Subspaces;
Chapter 4: Orthogonality;
Chapter 5: Determinants;
Chapter 6: Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors;
Chapter 7: The Singular Value Decomposition (SVD);
Chapter 8: Linear Transformations;

Chapter 10: Applications;
Chapter 11: Numerical Linear Algebra;
Chapter 12: Linear Algebra in Probability & Statistics;
Matrix Factorizations;
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 1-2 Linear systems
Ax = b m by n Chapters 3-4 Least squares
Ax = λx n by n Chapters 5-6 Eigenvalues
Av = σu m by n Chapters 7-8 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:

  1. The dimensions of the four subspaces
  2. The orthogonality of the two pairs
  3. The best bases for all four subspaces

This is the textbook that accompanies the author's video lectures and the review material on MIT's IOpenCourseWare.

ocw.mit.edu and math.mit.edu/linearalgebra

Many universities and colleges (and now high schools) use this textbook. Chapters 8-12 are for a second course on linear algebra.
