This book covers the material of an introductory course in linear algebra: sets and maps, vector spaces, bases, linear maps, matrices, determinants, systems of linear equations, Euclidean spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, diagonalization of self-adjoint operators, and classification of matrices. The book is written for beginners. Its didactic features (the "book within a book" and multiple choice tests with commented answers) make it especially suitable for self-study.
