Book Description

An undergraduate textbook that highlights motivating applications and contains summary sections, examples, exercises, online MATLAB codes and a MATLAB toolkit. All the major topics of computational linear algebra are covered, from basic concepts to advanced topics such as the quadratic eigenvalue problem in later chapters.

Format: Hardcover
While there are many books on Numerical Linear Algebra at various levels, Datta's book is very resourceful and carefully prepared for classroom use. The book is very readable and the students would love it. The organization of the topics, the method of presentation, historical background at the beginning of each chapter, lucid examples, comprehensive and detailed proofs for almost all Theorems, useful MATLAB exercises for almost all the computational methods presented in the book make this book very suitable for classroom adoptation. Datta has given lots of good references (books and journal articles) at the end of each chapter, which are useful for further research on the major topics. It is a very nice and well-written book. The only suggestion that I have is to add more details on Krylov Space methods and such topics, and make this book suitable for a wider audience. I recommend this book strongly.

Format: Hardcover
Great for classroom and self study.
One of the few texts to give step by step examples
on almost all of its algorithms,which can be carried out
on most hand held calculators. An essential step in
the learning process. This book makes learning Numerical
Linear Algebra as exciting as it really is.

Format: Hardcover
This book is fairly easy to read and covers the subject in a logical order. However the examples and problems are rife with errors and inconsistent nomenclature--making this a hard book to use as a text.

Came quickly but covers do not match and the teacher had never seen the cover before... Hopefully it's the correct edition.
