Linear Algebra for Economists
This textbook introduces students of economics to the fundamental notions and instruments in linear algebra. Linearity is used as a first approximation to many problems that are studied in different branches of science, including economics and other social sciences. Linear algebra is also the most suitable to teach students what proofs are and how to prove a statement. The proofs that are given in the text are relatively easy to understand and also endow the student with different ways of thinking in making proofs. Theorems for which no proofs are given in the book are illustrated via figures and examples. All notions are illustrated appealing to geometric intuition. The book provides a variety of economic examples using linear algebraic tools. It mainly addresses students in economics who need to build up skills in understanding mathematical reasoning. Students in mathematics and informatics may be interested in learning about the use of mathematics in economics.
First published in 1954, this book is now presented as a new edition replacing the 1999 edition. It covers many fields including Scalar products, metric geometry, vector products, properties of Tetrahedra together with statics of vectors.

Vector Calculus, Linear Algebra and Differential Forms: A Unified Approach
Using a dual-presentation that is rigorous and comprehensive--yet exceptionally "student-friendly" in approach--this text covers most of the standard topics in multivariate calculus and a substantial part of a standard first course in linear algebra. It focuses on underlying ideas, integrates theory and applications, offers a host of pedagogical aids, and features coverage of differential forms. There is an emphasis on numerical methods to prepare students for modern applications of mathematics.
College Algebra: Concepts & Contexts

Practice Makes Perfect Algebra
Practice Makes Perfect has established itself as a reliable practical workbook series in the language-learning category. Practice Makes Perfect: Algebra, provides students with the same clear, concise approach and extensive exercises to key fields they've come to expect from the series-but now within mathematics. This book presents thorough coverage of skills, such as handling decimals and fractions, functions, and linear and quadratic equations.
Practice Makes Perfect: Algebra is not focused on any particular test or exam, but complementary to most algebra curricula. Because of this approach, the book can be used by struggling students needing extra help, readers who need to firm up skills for an exam, or those who are returning to the subject years after they first studied algebra
A Course in Homological Algebra
Homological algebra has found a large number of applications in many fields ranging from finite and infinite group theory to representation theory, number theory, algebraic topology and sheaf theory. In the new edition of this broad introduction to the field, the authors address a number of select topics and describe their applications, illustrating the range and depth of their developments. A comprehensive set of exercises is included.
Handbook of Algebra
Algebra, as we know it today, consists of many different ideas, concepts and results. A reasonable estimate of the number of these different items would be somewhere between 50,000 and 200,000. Many of these have been named and many more could (and perhaps should) have a name or a convenient designation. Even the nonspecialist is likely to encounter most of these, either somewhere in the literature, disguised as a definition or a theorem or to hear about them and feel the need for more information. If this happens, one should be able to find enough information in this Handbook to judge if it is worthwhile to pursue the quest.
In addition to the primary information given in the Handbook, there are references to relevant articles, books or lecture notes to help the reader. An excellent index has been included which is extensive and not limited to definitions, theorems etc.
