   Publishing News & Notes
The Less Is More Linear Algebra of Vector Spaces and Matrices by Daniela Calvetti and Erkki Somersalo
The Basics of Practical Optimization, Second Edition by Adam B. Levy

This rigorous and concise textbook intentionally introduces vector spaces, inner products, and vector and matrix norms before Gaussian elimination and eigenvalues so students can quickly discover the singular value. Learn more.


Optimization is presented in most multivariable calculus courses as an application of the gradient, and while this treatment makes sense for a calculus course, there is much more to the theory of optimization. Learn more.
