Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students who are familiar with elementary linear algebra and conversant in a high-level programming language such as Fortran, Pascal, or C. Concerned with the teaching efficient and accurate matrix computations, which underlie most scientific computer codes. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
From The Critics
This text explains matrix computations and the accompanying theory in detail, for practicing scientists and graduate and advanced undergraduate students. This second edition makes use of MATLAB for many of the exercises and examples, although Fortran exercises from the first edition have been retained. The new edition contains a new chapter on iterative methods, and an introduction to new methods for solving large, sparse eigenvalue problems including the popular implicitly-restarted Arnoldi and Jacobi-Davidson methods. Watkins teaches mathematics at Washington State University. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
