This book is the last volume of a three-book series written for
Sixth Form students and first-year undergraduates. It introduces
the important concepts of finite-dimensional vector spaces through
the careful study of Euclidean geometry. In turn, methods of linear
algebra are then used in the study of coordinate transformations
through which a complete classification of conic sections and
quadric surfaces is obtained. The book concludes with a detailed
treatment of linear equations in n variables in the language of
vectors and matrices. Illustrative examples are included in the
main text and numerous exercises are given in each section. The
other books in the series are Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics
(published 1988) and Polynomials and Equations (published
1992).
