A wealth of material, some old and classical, some new and still subject to debate. It will be a valuable reference source for workers in numerical linear algebra as well as a challenge to students.(SIAM Review)
In purely academic terms the reader with an interest in matrix computations will find this book to be a mine of insight and information, and a provocation to thought; the annotated bibliographies are helpful to those wishing to explore further. One could not ask for more, and the book should be considered a resounding success.(Bulletin of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications)
The authors have rewritten and clarified many of the proofs and derivations from the first edition. They have also added new topics such as Arnoldi iteration, domain decomposition methods, and hyperbolic downdating. Clearly the second edition is an invaluable reference book that should be in every university library. With the new proofs and derivations, it should remain the text of choice for graduate courses in matrix computations(Image: Bulletin of the International Linear Algebra Society)
This is the book if you need to understand matrix algorithms. Also while learning those algorithms, you get a great insight on eigenproblems, and linear algebra. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Rafael G. C. Pinto

The book is to big and has to much information, without details of the developing alghoritms. But even so, its a good acquisition for the alghoritms givenPublished 19 months ago by Marcio Guimaraens
I must say this text has probably all the content an engineering graduate student like myself might need. Read morePublished on April 23, 2012 by mextron
A classic, if there ever was one! The book may seem a little hard on the first reading, but try reading it after going through the first few chapters of the book by Watkins, and... Read morePublished on January 18, 2012 by Bhaskar Ramasubramanian
One of the most thorough and erudite books on numerical linear analysis available. The authors, Golub and Van Loan, are pioneers in matrix analysis. The review is encyclopedic. Read morePublished on September 11, 2011 by Daniel M. Topa
I used this book to teach me some of the finer points of matrix operations, and continue to reference it. Read morePublished on February 14, 2011 by M. A. Kass
If you are working with computational methods. Clear explanations and very efficient notation specially if you are a beginner on the subject.Published on June 1, 2010 by Diva Maria O. Santiago
The book I purchased has a very good condition and is new without any markings or page tear. The only thing is that I received the book 3 weeks from ordering. Read morePublished on March 4, 2010 by Somnath Chakrabarti
