An introduction to linear algebra from the pure math perspective. Finite-Dimensional Vector Spaces. Paul R. Halmos The book ends with a few applications to analysis (Halmos’s true interest in the subject). Finite Dimensional Vector Spaces combines algebra and geometry to discuss the three-dimensional area where vectors can be plotted. The book broke ground.
