**Linear Algebra with Applications **

Author: W. Keith Nicholson.

“Nicholson Linear Algebra” 6e introduces the general idea of Linear Algebra much earlier than the competition keeping with the same rigorous and concise approach to linear algebra. Along with the many diagrams and examples that help students visualize, the 6e also keeps with the continuous introduction of concepts. Number 1 advantage is in Chap 5 known as the ‘bridging chapter’ helps stop students from ‘hitting the wall’ when abstract vector spaces are introduced in chap 6.

**Introduction to Linear Algebra**

Author: Strang, Gilbert

Wellesley – Cambridge Press, 2007

ISBN: 0961408898

Library code: FSE (5 photos)

This leading textbook for first courses in linear algebra comes from the hugely experienced MIT lecturer and author Gilbert Strang. The book’s tried and tested approach is direct, offering practical explanations and examples, while showing the beauty and variety of the subject. Unlike most other linear algebra textbooks, the approach is not a repetitive drill. Instead it inspires an understanding of real mathematics. The book moves gradually and naturally from numbers to vectors to the four fundamental subspaces. This new edition includes challenge problems at the end of each section. Preview five complete sections at math.mit.edu/linearalgebra. Readers can also view freely available online videos of Gilbert Strang’s 18.06 linear algebra course at MIT, via OpenCourseWare (ocw.mit.edu), that have been watched by over a million viewers. Also on the web (http://web.mit.edu/18.06/www/), readers will find years of MIT exam questions, MATLAB help files and problem sets to practise what they have learned.

**Elementary Linear Algebra **

Author: Stanley I. Grossman

America: Saunders College Publishing

ISBN: 0030138132

Library code: FSE (1 + 5 photos)

Intended for the first course in linear algebra, this widely used text balances mathematical techniques and mathematical proofs. It presents theory in small steps and provides more examples and exercises involving computations than competing texts.

**Vector calculus **

**Call number: **515.63

Author: Jerrold E. Marsden, Anthony J. Tromba.

3rd ed. – New York : W.H.Freeman and Company, 1988. – 655tr. ; 24cm

ISBN: 0716718561

Library code: FSE (1)

Now in its edition, Vector Calculus helps students gain an intuitive and solid understanding of this important subject. The book’s careful account is a contemporary balance between theory, application, and historical development, providing it’s readers with an insight into how mathematics progresses and is in turn influenced by the natural world.

This is a short, focused introduction to MATLAB, a comprehensive software system for mathematical and technical computing. It contains concise explanations of essential MATLAB commands, as well easily understood instructions for using MATLAB’s programming features, graphical capabilities, simulation models, and rich desktop interface. Written for MATLAB 7 it can also be used with earlier (and later) versions of MATLAB.This book teaches how to graph functions, solve equations, manipulate images, and much more. It contains explicit instructions for using MATLAB’s companion software, Simulink, which allows graphical models to be built for dynamical systems. MATLAB’s new “publish” feature is discussed, which allows mathematical computations to be combined with text and graphics, to produce polished, integrated, interactive documents.

**Introduction to Programming with Mathematica**

An Introduction to Programming with Mathematica® is designed to introduce the Mathematica programming language to a wide audience. Since the last edition of this book was published, significant changes have occurred in Mathematica and its use worldwide. Keeping pace with these changes, this substantially larger, updated version includes new and revised chapters on numerics, procedural, rule-based, and front-end programming, and gives significant coverage to the latest features up to, and including, Mathematica 5.1. Mathematica notebooks, available from http://www.cambridge.org/0521846781, contain examples, programs, and solutions to exercises in the book. Additionally, material to supplement later versions of the software will be made available. This is the ideal text for all scientific students, researchers, and programmers wishing to deepen their understanding of Mathematica, or even those keen to program using an interactive language that contains programming paradigms from all major programming languages: procedural, functional, recursive, rule-based, and object-oriented.
