Retaining the accessible and hands-on style of its predecessor, Fundamentals of Matrix Computations, Third Edition thoroughly details matrix computations and the accompanying theory alongside the author's useful insights. The book presents the most important algorithms of numerical linear algebra and helps readers to understand how the algorithms are developed and why they work.
Along with new and updated examples, the Third Edition features:
Throughout the book, numerous new and updated exercises—ranging from routine computations and verifications to challenging programming and proofs—are provided, allowing readers to immediately engage in applying the presented concepts. The new edition also incorporates MATLAB to solve real-world problems in electrical circuits, mass-spring systems, and simple partial differential equations, and an index of MATLAB terms assists readers with understanding the basic concepts related to the software.
Fundamentals of Matrix Computations, Third Edition is an excellent book for courses on matrix computations and applied numerical linear algebra at the upper-undergraduate and graduate level. The book is also a valuable resource for researchers and practitioners working in the fields of engineering and computer science who need to know how to solve problems involving matrix computations.
I love the format of this book, it explains a topic from the ground up and you understand the roots of the problem and the roots of the solutions. Read morePublished on June 20, 2012 by Giovanni Azua
Concepts are explained lucidly. The exercise problems are interesting. It would be a good idea to read this book first before moving on to books like the one by Golub/ Van Loan. Read morePublished on January 18, 2012 by Bhaskar Ramasubramanian
