Some Main Useful Theorems
- A matrix is invertible, or non-singular, if and only if the linear map represented by the matrix is an isomorphism.
- Any vector space over a field F of dimension n is isomorphic to Fn as a vector space over F.
- Corollary: Any two vector spaces over F of the same finite dimension are isomorphic to each other.
- A linear map is an isomorphism if and only if the determinant is nonzero.

Famous quotes containing the word main:
“One of the main things that interfere with our joy is the belief that if we try hard enough, read the right books, follow the right advice, and buy the right things, we could be perfect parents. If we are good enough as parents, our children will be perfect too.... Unfortunately, what comes from trying to live out this philosophy is not perfect children but worried parents.”
—Lawrence Kutner (20th century)
