I thought I hated math at first, but linear algebra really changed my outlook on mathematics. What I really didn't like was calculus, which is fine, there are plenty of folks who would love to focus on purely calculus.

My question is whether there is a comprehensive history of linear algebra?

The only two sources I've found of note is a link to a pdf from University of Utah and this book called The Chinese Roots of Linear Algebra

Does anyone else know of anymore?


Roger Hart (the author of the book you mentioned) has a web site here: http://www.rhart.org/algebra/
