Yagyavendra Kumawat rated it it was amazing Jan 04, Halmos Limited preview – The book continues to exert its influence sixty years after publication, as linear algebra is now widely used, not only in mathematics but also in the natural and social sciences, for studying such subjects as weather problems, traffic flow, electronic circuits, and population genetics. Time spent reading this relatively thin book is measured in “hours per page.

Th “The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and that achieves here a high degree of lucidity and clarity. Yuri Popov rated it liked it Apr 04, User Review – Flag as inappropriate I’m going to have to agree with the other “outlier” review here.


The book contains about well placed and instructive problems, which cover a considerable part of the subject. No trivia or quizzes yet. 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 the author.
