## The Linear Algebra a Beginning Graduate Student Ought to Know : Jonathan S. Golan :

The worse thing about this book is that chapter 1 should properly be called chapter 0, because it contains only preliminary notation and terminology. June 24, - Published on Amazon. This is an excellent introduction to graduate-level linear algebra, touching on theory, applications, and algorithms. It's one of those books I wish had been available when I was in grad school.

## CHEAT SHEET

Get to Know Us. Certainly, the material presented in the average undergraduate linear algebra course is insufficient for graduate study. This book is intended to fill this gap by providing enough material "theoretical and computational" to allow the student to work independently or in advanced courses.

It is also designed to prepare a student for the linear algebra portion of prelim exams or PhD qualifying exams. The volume is self-contained to the extent that it does not assume any previous formal knowledge of linear algebra, though the reader is assumed to have been exposed, at least informally, to some basic ideas and techniques, such as the solution of a small system of linear equations over the real numbers.

More importantly, it does assume a seriousness of purpose and a modicum of mathematical sophistication on the part of the reader. The book also contains over exercises, many of which are very challenging. The topics that the author considers are mostly standard …. Preview this item Preview this item. It entails an extensive corpus of theoretical results as well as a large body of computational techniques.

Unfortunately, in recent years the content of the linear algebra courses required to complete an undergraduate degree in mathematics has been depleted to the extent that they fail to provide a sufficient theoretical or computational background. Students are not only less able to formulate or even follow mathematical proofs, they are also less able to understand the mathematics of the numerical algorithms they need for applications. Certainly, the material presented in the average undergraduate linear algebra course is insufficient for graduate study.
