In this post, we will see the book *Linear Algebra with Elements of Analytic Geometry* by A.S. Solodovnikov, G.A. Toropova.

**About the book**

This study aid follows the course on linear algebra with elementary analytic geometry and is intended for technical school students specializing in applied mathematics. The text deals with the elements of analytic geometry, the theory of matrices and determinants, systems of linear equations, vectors, and Euclidean spaces. The material is presented in an informal manner. Many interesting examples will help the reader to grasp the material easily.

The book was translated from the Russian by Tamara Baranovskaya and was published by Mir in 1990.
