The author of this book was Professor of Theoretical Physics at the University of Belgrade. The book is based on lectures he gave there to both undergraduate and postgraduate students over a period of several decades. It sets out to explain Linear Algebra from its fundamentals to the most advanced level. A special feature of this book is its didactical approach, with a myriad of thoroughly worked examples and excellent illustrations, which allows the reader to approach the subject from any level and to proceed to that of the most advanced applications. Throughout, the subject is explained with painstaking care.

From the reviews:
"It is based on lectures by the author ... to both undergraduate and graduate students in Europe over a period of several decades. ... it does have some parts that are appropriate for undergraduates and others seem to be intended for more advanced students. ... Examples throughout the book are geared toward quantum theory, and unitary and Hermitian matrices are treated thoroughly. ... students whose specific objective is to prepare for the study of quantum mechanics will find it useful for self-study." (David S. Watkins, SIAM Review, Vol. 51 (3), 2009)
