Linear algebra is relatively easy for students during the early stages of the course when the material is presented in a familiar concrete setting But when abstract concepts are introduced students often hit a brick wall Instructors seem to agree that certain concepts such as linear independence spanning subspace vector space and linear transformations are not easily understood and require time to assimilate Since they are fundamental to the study of linear algebra students understanding of these concepts is vital to their mastery of the subject David Lay introduces these concepts early in a familiar concrete Rn setting develops them gradually and returns to them again and again throughout the text so that when discussed in the abstract these concepts are more accessible Note This is the standalone book if you want the book access card order the ISBN below 0321399145 9780321399144 Linear Algebra plus MyMathLab Getting Started Kit for Linear Algebra and Its Applications Package consists of 0321385179 9780321385178 Linear Algebra and Its Applications 0321431308 9780321431301 MyMathLab MyStatLab -- Glue-in Access Card 0321654064 9780321654069 MyMathLab Inside Star Sticker

1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLERIt is only a slight exaggeration to say that the British mathematician Alan Turing 1912-1954 saved the Allies from the Nazis invented the computer and artificial intelligence and anticipated gay liberation by decades--all before his suicide at age forty-one This New York Times-bestselling biography of the founder of computer science with a new preface by the author that addresses Turing s royal pardon in 2013 is the definitive account of an extraordinary mind and life Capturing both the inner and outer drama of Turing s life Andrew Hodges tells how Turing s revolutionary idea of 1936--the concept of a universal machine--laid the foundation for the modern computer and how Turing brought the idea to practical realization in 1945 with his electronic design The book also tells how this work was directly related to Turing s leading role in breaking the German Enigma ciphers during World War II a scientific triumph that was critical to Allied victory in the Atlantic At the same time this is the tragic account of a man who despite his wartime service was eventually arrested stripped of his security clearance and forced to undergo a humiliating treatment program--all for trying to live honestly in a society... that defined homosexuality as a crime The inspiration for a major motion picture starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley Alan Turing The Enigma is a gripping story of mathematics computers cryptography and homosexual persecution more
