Starting from scratch and constructing the traditional themes of Linear Algebra, this publication is meant as a textual content for a primary path at the topic. The objective to which this paintings leads is the concept of Hurwitz - that the one normed algebras over the true numbers are the true numbers, the advanced numbers, the quaternions, and the octonions. certain in proposing this fabric at an easy point, the publication stresses the total logical improvement of the topic and should supply a bavuable reference for mathematicians often.
