About the Author

James B. Carrell is a professor at the University of British Columbia in Canada. His research areas are: algebraic transformation groups, algebraic geometry, and lie theory. He has published five papers since the year 2000, and has contributed to numerous other books. He is co-editor-in-chief of the Canadian Journal of Mathematics.


"This is an introductory text on linear algebra and group theory from a geometric viewpoint. The topics, largely standard, are presented in brief, well-organized one- and two-page subsections written in clear, if rather pedestrian, language, with detailed examples." (R. J. Bumcrot, Mathematical Reviews, February, 2018)

"It is particularly applicable for anyone who is familiar with vector spaces and wants to learn about groups - and also for anyone who is familiar with groups and wants to learn about vector spaces. This book is well readable and therefore suitable for self-studying. Each chapter begins with a concise and informative summary of its content, guiding the reader to choose the chapters with most interest to him/her." (Jorma K. Merikoski, zbMATH 1380.15001, 2018)
