This is a short, readable introduction to basic linear algebra, as usually encountered in a first course. The development of the subject is integrated with a large number of worked examples that illustrate the ideas and methods. The format of the book, with text and relevant examples on facing pages means that the reader can follow the text uninterrupted. The student should be able to work through the book and learn from it sequentially. Stress is placed on applications of the methods rather than on developing a logical system of theorems. Numerous exercises are provided.
