Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book under review which is the second edition of the 30 years ago published one provides a detailed survey of generalized inverses and their main properties … . An important feature of this book is the over 600 exercises … . Each chapter ends with the section ‘Suggested further reading’. These sections provide excellent additional references on topics treated … . it can be used profitably by graduate or advanced undergraduate students of mathematics and computer science, and by PhD students … ." (Róbert Rajkó, Acta Scientiarum Mathematicarum, Vol. 71, 2005)

"Each chapter is accompanied by suggestions for further reading, while the bibliography contains 901 references. … The book contains 450 exercises at different levels of difficulty, many of which are solved in detail. This feature makes it suitable either for reference and self-study or for use as a classroom text. It can be used profitably by graduate students or advanced undergraduate students … ." (Nicholas Karampetakis, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1026, 2004)
