    Book suggestion on advanced linear algebra

    Hi all...

    I've made a course on linear algebra during my graduation (chemistry)
    but I would like to have stronger knowledge on the subject.
    But I am not familiar with the extremely rigorous math I am finding around (Again, I am just a chemist)

    Hope someone can suggest a good, yet not made only for mathematicians, book

    Cheers

    Amazon.com: Used and New: Linear Algebra and Its Applications (3rd Edition)

    This is the one I learned Linear Algebra from in undergrad. It was one of the first proof classes we had, so I don't think it will be too bad if you are not totally familiar with rigorous mathematics.

    If you are looking for more advanced properties of linear algebra, Dummit and Foote's text on abstract algebra has a lot of interesting more advanced stuff assuming knowledge of the basics. Modules over PIDs, Jordan Canonical Form, RCF, tensors, Dual space, all that sort of stuff.

    I think the first one would be more helpful for you as a chemist, but just my opinion.

    Cheers
