Re: Introduction to Linear Algebra

well again i am handicapped by prior familiarity with earlier versions of these books from 40 years ago. i was originally very impressed by his book because it had chapters entitled:

"the linear map associated to a matrix"

and " the matrix associated to a linear map>

only one of these seems to survive here, but i presume it is as clear as the earlier one.
