“In this book, Ferrante Neri elaborates on this algebraic background, providing a very good starting point for undergraduate students who wish to gain a basic understanding of the theories behind the most exciting parts of contemporary information technology (IT) technologies. … As Neri’s work is a self-contained textbook, everything is explained from scratch and all of the chapters finish with exercises to test the reader’s understanding of just the presented material.” (Piotr Cholda, Computing Reviews, May, 2017)

“This is a nice, compact treatment, especially for those individuals who have yet to take an abstract algebra course. … The topic of computational complexity is a welcome addition to any text on linear algebra. … All in all, this is a thorough, carefully written text that can be utilized for any introductory linear algebra course. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates.” (R. L. Pour, Choice, Vol. 54 (6), February, 2017)
