He received his Ph. Scientists, engineers, economists and others whose work involves this important area of mathematics, will welcome the variety of special types of matrices and determinants discussed, which make the book not only a comprehensive introduction to the field, but a valuable resource and reference work. However, treating vectors as matrices and there is a standard matrix multiplication for matrices, it would make sense. However, there is not a "clean" way to do this. Eves then goes on to cover fundamental concepts and operations, equivalence, determinants, matrices with polynomial elements, similarity and congruence.

This outstanding text offers an unusual Elementary Matrix Theory book to matrix theory at the undergraduate level. Grammatical Errors rating: 3 There are a few minor typos, none that distract from the text for example, "recieve" instead of "receive". The emphasis is on the geometry, without reinforcing the algebraic ideas from the matrix operations sections and then it switches to focusing on the algebra and ignoring the geometry until a later chapter. Students of matrix theory will especially appreciate the many excellent problems solutions not provided included in each chapter, which are not just routine calculation exercises, but involve proof and extension of the concepts and material of the text. The section on matrix multiplication is a little clunky. A final optional chapter considers matrix theory from a generalized or abstract viewpoint, extending it to arbitrary number rings and fields, vector spaces and linear transformations of vector spaces.

Unlike most texts dealing with the topic, which tend to remain on an abstract level, Dr. Students of matrix theory will especially appreciate the many excellent problems solutions Elementary Matrix Theory book provided included in each chapter, which are not just routine calculation exercises, but involve proof and extension of the concepts and material of the text. While it is not the standard way to multiply matrices, situations arise in which it is the required way. Most sections, though, end with "guiding questions" for the next section for example, the section on matrix multiplication ends with questions that infer the matrix inverse will exist, which is explained in the next section. The book contains ten chapters covering various topics ranging from similarity and special types of matrices to Schur complements and matrix normality.

Avoiding theory but using the term "theorem" might require some discussion in class that is avoided in the textbook. A final optional chapter considers matrix theory from a generalized or abstract viewpoint, extending it to arbitrary number rings and fields, vector Elementary Matrix Theory book and linear transformations of vector spaces.

Unlike most texts dealing with the topic, which tend to remain on an Elementary Matrix Theory book level, Dr. The examples are benign enough not to become outdated. The author's concluding remarks direct the interested student to possible avenues of further study in matrix theory, while an extensive bibliography rounds out the book.

This leads to questionable notation when introducing matrix multiplication. This outstanding text offers an unusual introduction to matrix theory at the undergraduate level. Although the treatment is fundamental — no previous courses in abstract algebra are required — it is also flexible: each chapter includes special material for advanced students interested in deeper study or application of the theory.

The author's concluding remarks direct the interested student to possible avenues of further study in matrix theory, while an extensive bibliography rounds out the book. The book begins with preliminary remarks that set the stage for the author's concrete approach to matrix theory and the consideration of matrices as hypercomplex numbers.
