Hi, which book would you recommend to me to learn linear algebra (Jordan Canonical Form, Quadratic Forms, Diagonalization, Eigenvalues, Change of Basis, etc.)?

I am dealing with quadratic forms, Jordan matrices, kernels. I want to make strong foundations in this basic area, but of course, I also want to make further steps in linear algebra.

I don't have a variety of experience like many of the other members on this site, but I will say I got "Introduction to Linear Algebra" by Hans Samelson. It will cover all the concepts you mentioned, and I personally believe it is explained very well. Link on Amazon
