Fundamentals of Matrix Computations / Edition 2by David S. Watkins
Pub. Date: 05/28/2002
The use of numerical methods continues to expand rapidly. At their heart lie matrix computations. Written in a clear, expository style, it allows students and professionals to build confidence in themselves by putting the theory behind matrix computations into practice instantly. Algorithms that allow students to work examples and write programs introduce each chapter. The book then moves on to discuss more complicated theoretical material. Using a step-by-step approach, it introduces mathematical material only as it is needed. Exercises range from routine computations and verifications to extensive programming projects and challenging proofs.
