Elementary Linear Algebra: Applications Version, 12th Australia and New Zealand Edition

ISBN: 9781119666066

The twelfth Australia and New Zealand edition of Anton’s Elementary Linear Algebra: Applications Version gives an elementary treatment of linear algebra that is suitable for a first course for undergraduate students. The aim is to present the fundamentals of linear algebra in the clearest possible way; pedagogy is the main consideration. Calculus is not a prerequisite, but there are clearly labelled exercises and examples (which can be omitted without loss of continuity) for students who have studied calculus.


  • Highlights relationships among concepts: By continually revisiting the web of relationships among systems of equations, matrices, determinants, vectors, linear transformations, and eigenvalues, Anton helps students to perceive linear algebra as a cohesive subject rather than as a collection of isolated definitions and techniques.
  • New exercises: Hundreds of new exercises of all types have been added throughout the text.
  • Mathematically sound: A book with mathematical precision that’s appropriate for mathematics majors, while still maintaining the pedagogical needs of engineering, science and business/economics students.
