Editorial Reviews


This superb book is timely and is written with great attention paid to detail, particularly in its referencing of the literature. The book has a wonderful blend of theory and code (MATLAB®) so will be useful both to nonexperts and to experts in the field. --Alan Laub, Professor, University of California, Los Angeles

Book Description

A thorough treatment of the theory of matrix functions and numerical methods for computing them, including an overview of applications, new and unpublished research results, and improved algorithms. Ideal for advanced courses and for self-study, its broad content, references and appendix also make this book a convenient general reference.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Functions of Matrices is a very useful topic, and this is the only book on it, and it is excellent. The material in it will allow me to expand some research I have done in the topic "Functions of sets of matrices" in new directions.

You might be aware that the author has "written the book" on how to write a good math book ("Handbook of Writing for the Math Sciences", another great book) and this is an excellent example.
