Fernando Gouvêa, Colby’s Carter Professor of Mathematics, recently reviewed two books for the Mathematical Association of America. Linear Algebra I, a textbook for both undergraduates in need of advanced material with full proofs and graduate students “in need of a deeper and more complete introduction to linear algebra.” Gouvêa concludes that “a course based on this book would make a very nice capstone course for students interested in applied mathematics, particularly if some links to applications were provided.

The other review is for Notes on Jacquet-Langlands’ Theorywhich “is the record of the lectures Godement gave at the Institute for Advanced Study to help people understand and read the book” Automorphic Forms on 𝐺𝐿(2), by Hervé Jacquet and Robert P. Langlands.
