The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and . An introduction to linear algebra from the pure math perspective. Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces combines algebra and geometry to discuss the three-dimensional area where vectors can be plotted. The book broke ground.

You simply can’t go wrong with it, although it must be said that more modern treatments of linear algebra could be more appropriate. Second Edition Paul R.

In Halmos received the coveted Steele Prize for exposition from the American Mathematical Society for “his many graduate texts in mathematics dealing with finite dimensional vector spaces, measure theory, ergodic theory, and Hilbert space.

This makes it very difficult to scan back a few pages to refer to earlier ideas. Second Edition Paul R.
In fact, the entire book uses an old style typeset that has very limited capability for highlighting key ideas or diagramming concepts, and provides minimal aid for the more visual learners. Refresh and try again. All in all, this is an excellent work, of equally finite-dimensionql value for both student and teacher.

I’m going to have to agree with the other “outlier” review here. DeFreitas rated it it was amazing May 28, The presentation is never awkward or dry, as it sometimes is in other “modern” textbooks; it is as unconventional as one has come to expect from vectkr author.
