Mathematica Workbook

to accompany

 Linear Algebra with Applications


 Gareth Williams

 (Jones and Bartlett Publishers)


The package consists of three files:

1. ReadMe: Gives an overview and explains where the other two files should be placed.

2. Workbook:  This is the file the instructor or student uses. Consists of the topics listed below.

3. LinAlg: This folder contains the programs LAWA.m which are used in the workbook. Need never be opened. 


This material may be modified by an instructor or student for course use. Not to be sold or used for commercial purposes.
