The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and . An introduction to linear algebra from the pure math perspective. Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces combines algebra and geometry to discuss the three-dimensional area where vectors can be plotted. The book broke ground.

Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces – Paul Richard Halmos – Google Books

Halmos Limited preview – This makes it very difficult to scan back a few pages to refer to earlier ideas. Felix rated it it was amazing Mar 04, You simply can’t go wrong with it, although it must be said that more modern treatments of linear algebra could be more appropriate. I’m an undergraduate student with moderate interest in linear algebra, and have enjoyed reading other material on the subject in the past.

Scott Sutherland rated it really liked it Dec 26, It has a heavy emphasis on doing things in the most rigorous, “proper” way possible, written for the purest mathematicians at heart.

Th “The theory is systematically developed by the axiomatic method that has, since von Neumann, dominated the general approach to linear functional analysis and that achieves here a high degree of lucidity and clarity. The book continues to exert its influence sixty years after publication, as linear algebra is now widely used, not only in mathematics but also in the natural and social sciences, for studying such subjects as weather problems, traffic flow, electronic circuits, and population genetics.

Second Edition Paul R. Bishal Deb rated it it was amazing May 16, Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces. Dieudonne No preview available – Second Edition Paul R. He eventually became John von Neumann’s research assistant, and it was one of von Neumann’s inspiring lectures that spurred Halmos to write Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces.

Vlad Korolev rated it it was amazing Sep 28, Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces. The presentation is never awkward or dry, as it sometimes is in other “modern” textbooks; it is as unconventional as one has xpaces to expect from the author.


Foundations of Modern Analysis, Volume 1 J. This book seems to provide lengthy explanations for simple ideas, and fails to point out concepts that could make interpreting the text far easier.

Nonlinear Programming Olvi L. Herrsimon rated it it was amazing Feb 25, Jacobsca rated it really liked it Jan 02, For anyone looking for a quick reference to skim or a book to learn from for a casual interest Linear Algebra course, I would highly recommend looking for another book. I’m going to have to agree with the other “outlier” review here.

The book brought him instant fame as an expositor of mathematics. Mangasarian No preview available – In Halmos received the coveted Steele Prize for exposition from the American Mathematical Society for “his many graduate texts in mathematics dealing with finite dimensional vector spaces, measure theory, ergodic finite-dumensional, and Hilbert space.
