## Matrix Methods: An IntroductionThis new edition of Matrix Methods emphasizes applications to Jordan-canonical forms, differential equations, and least squares. The revision now includes an entire new chapter on inner products, additional material on elementary row applications, and hundreds of new exercises.* Provides an introduction to the functional approach to programming * Emphasizes the problem to be solved, not the programming language * Takes the view that all computer programs are a definition of a function * Includes exercises for each chapter * Requires at least a high school algebra level of mathematical sophistication * A self-contained work * Can be used as a pre-programming language introduction to the mathematics of computing |
