Abstract

In the preceding chapters, we have seen how the language and techniques of linear algebra can unify large parts of the geometry of vectors in 2 and 3 dimensions. What begins as an alternative way of treating problems in analytic geometry becomes a powerful tool for investigating increasingly complicated phenomena, such as eigenvectors or quadratic forms, which would be difficult to approach otherwise.
