Starting with familiar concepts and slowly building to deeper results, this text focuses on vector spaces and the maps between them that preserve their structure (linear transformations). It discusses the structure theory of an operator, various topics on inner product spaces, and the trace and determinant functions of a linear operator. The text also covers bilinear forms with a full treatment of symplectic spaces and orthogonal spaces and explains the construction of tensor, symmetric, and exterior algebras. It includes many examples, exercises, and problems, with selected solutions in the appendices. A solutions manual is available for qualifying instructors.
