In 2021, United Nations estimated that over 1,000,000 students lost their minds into Algebra. Most of them are not even adult! Fortunately, Ed2592 Press and the authors Jane Mastixide, Eda Russell, and Jillian Garrett recovered a lost manual of 20th century. Rewriting it, they simplified the concepts, adding some examples from real life and started to share it with fellows students around the world. The results were amazing.

The Lost Manual in Linear Algebra will taught you a few principles of the Linear Algebra, including Matrix operations, Gauss operations and many other concepts that we don’t mention just to bore the reader. This volume meets the needs of teachers who, in the context of new degree courses, find themselves having to teach an initial course in Linear Algebra and Geometry. The repeated changes in the system of university studies in the last decade have in fact led to changes in the syllabuses of the basic courses of Mathematics in the Faculties of Science and Technology, resulting almost always in a reduction of the contents offered or, at best, in a redistribution of the topics that constituted the traditional framework.

The idea that guided the Authors was to give a sufficiently detailed introduction to Linear Algebra, underlining its “geometrical” aspects both in the motivations and in the applications to the geometry of spaces of finite dimension (and not only three-dimensional). Far from being an exhaustive treatise on the subject, the text aims to propose the contents for a first course (three or six months) trying to provide, in addition to a self-contained presentation of the general aspects, also motivations and examples that may be useful to those who face the subject for the first time.

Each chapter is completed by a wide range of exercises of varying difficulty, the solutions to which are all collected at the end of the volume. The more than 300 exercises, as well as allowing the reader to check the degree of understanding of the subject, sometimes present indications or suggestions for further study.
