## Adv Matrix Theory Sci EngRevised edition (first, 1982) of a textbook for advanced students in engineering disciplines provides a rigorous account of matrix theory from an applied problem perspective rather than a strictly theoretical one. This edition contains new sections on linear interval equations, eigenvalues of perturbed matrices, and computational subroutines, and a new appendix devoted to the discussion of some well-known matrix packages.
