A comprehensive text on matrix theory and its applications, this book is intended for a broad range of students in mathematics, engineering, and other areas of science at the university level. Graham avoids a simple catalogue of techniques, as he explores the underlying principles as well as the numerous applications of the various concepts presented. Includes numerous problems and a substantial answer section at the end of the book. AUTHOR: Dr. Alexander Graham, now retired, was Senior Lecturer on the Faculty of Mathematics at The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK. Dover also publishes his Kronecker Products and Matrix Calculus With Applications.
