The Theory of Matrices


In this book the authors try to bridge the gap between the treatments of matrix theory and linear algebra. It is aimed at graduate and advanced undergraduate students seeking a foundation in mathematics, computer science, or engineering. It will also be useful as a reference book for those working on matrices and linear algebra for use in their scientific work.


Matrix Theory by Joel N. Franklin


Not only is matrix theory significant in a wide range of fields mathematical economics, quantum physics,
geophysics, electrical network synthesis, crystallography, and structural engineering, among others-but with the vast proliferation of digital computers, knowledge of matrix theory is a must for every modern engineer, mathematician, and scientist. Matrices represent linear transformations from a finite set of numbers to another finite set of numbers.Since many important problems are linear, and since digital computers with finite memory manipulate only finite sets of numbers, the solution of linear problems by digital computers usually involves matrices. Developed from the author's course on matrix theory at the California Institute of Technology, the book begins with a concise presentation of the theory of determinants, continues with a discussion of classical linear algebra, and an optional chapter on the use of matrices to solve systems of linear triangulations of Hermitian and non Hermitian matrices, as well as a chapter presenting a proof of the difficult and important matrix theory of Jordan. The book concludes with discussions of variational principles and perturbation theory of matrices, matrix numerical analysis, and an introduction to the subject of linear computations.
