Intended for a serious first course or a second course, this text will carry students beyond eigenvalues and eigenvectors to the classification of bilinear forms, normal matrices, spectral decompositions, the Jordan form, and sequences and series of matrices. For this second edition, the authors, both affiliated with the University of South Carolina, have slowed the pace in the early chapters, and have added a new chapter on numerical methods, plus 46 new examples and 881 new exercises. The text is suitable for a one-year undergraduate course for mathematics majors. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
