The publisher's pitch for the title indicates that three chapters were "moved online" as of the fourth edition due to "popular demand". I smell BS. I think the publisher did this to juice the margins on this textbook, which like most is overpriced.

Here are the chapter and section titles for the missing material from the book, which is now in its sixth edition:

8 Complex Vector Spaces

8.1 Complex Numbers
8.2 Conjugates and Divisors of Complex Numbers
8.3 Polar Form and DeMoivre's Theorem
8.4 Complex V
Basic LA, some nice geo demo of low dimensional example to illustrate some theories. I expect more about eigenvector and eigenvalue however, so that I can better understand PCA, which is completely untouched here. Perhaps that is what "elementary" means.
