Hi Prof Kim,

I’m wondering is there recommended books that I can buy for 2201? Thank you.

The book listed on the syllabus by Serge Lang is a rather nice classic. I have some sentimental attachment to it because it was written by my late Ph.D. supervisor. Another clear exposition is the textbook by Gilbert Strang. Incidentally, you should check out the MIT on-line course delivered by Strang. You find many other resources as well on that page.

Finally, a good computationally intensive book with many examples is `Linear Algebra in Action’ by Harry Dym.
