## Elementary Matrix TheoryThe usefulness of matrix theory as a tool in disciplines ranging from quantum mechanics to psychometrics is widely recognized, and courses in matrix theory are increasingly a standard part of the undergraduate curriculum. |

### What people are saying - Write a review

It's interesting that this book, published in 1966, states that it is for undergraduates since much of this material would now (in 2010) be more likely to appear in a second course in linear algebra. The author writes clearly and this book is a great source of information beyond the introductory material in a modern linear algebra course. I'm not sure where some of this same material can be found in more recently published books. See also Matrices and Linear Transformations, 2nd ed, by Charles Cullen.
