A fascinating exploration of the correlation between geometry and linear algebra, this text portrays the former as a subject better understood by the use and development of the latter rather than as an independent field. The treatment offers elementary explanations of the role of geometry in other branches of math and science as well as its value in understanding probability, determinant theory, and function spaces.

AUTHOR: Melvin Hausner is Emeritus Professor at New York University's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences. His other books include Elementary Probability Theory and Lie Groups, Lie Algebras.
