**REVISED Exercise Sets**

The exercise sets have been carefully and extensively examined to ensure they are rigorous, relevant, and cover all the topics necessary to understand the fundamentals of linear algebra. The exercises are ordered and titled so you can see the connections between examples and exercises. Many new skillbuilding, challenging, and application exercises have been added. As in earlier editions, the following pedagogically-proven types of exercises are included.

â€¢ True or False Exercises

**Table of Contents Changes**

Based on market research and feedback from users, Section 2.5 in the previous edition (Applications of Matrix Operations) has been expanded from one section to two sections to include content on Markov chains. So now, Chapter 2 has two application sections: Section 2.5 (Markov Chains) and Section 2.6 (More Applications of Matrix Operations). In addition, Section 7.4 (Applications of Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors) has been expanded to include content on constrained optimization.
