Linear algebra and matrix theory are fundamental tools in mathematical and physical science, as well as fertile fields for research. This second edition of this acclaimed text presents results of both classic and recent matrix analysis using canonical forms as a unifying theme and demonstrates their importance in a variety of applications. This thoroughly revised and updated second edition is a text for a second course on linear algebra and has more than 1,100 problems and exercises, new sections on the singular value and CS decompositions and the Weyr canonical form, expanded treatments of inverse problems and of block matrices, and much more.
Read more Comprehensive coverage of core advanced linear algebra topics, using canonical forms as a unifying theme
 More than 1,100 problems and exercises, many with detailed hints, including themebased problems that develop throughout the text
 2by2 examples illustrate concepts throughout the book
Reviews & endorsements
Review of the first edition: 'The presentation is straightforward and extremely readable. The authors' enthusiasm pervades the book, and the printing is what we expect from this publisher. This will doubtless be the standard text for years to come.' American Scientist
See more reviewsReview of the first edition: 'The reviewer strongly recommends that those working in either pure or applied linear algebra have this book on their desks.' SIAM Review
Review of the first edition: 'There seems little doubt that the book will become a standard reference for research workers in numerical mathematics.' Computing Reviews
Review of the first edition: 'The authors have done an excellent job of supplying linear algebraists and applied mathematicians with a wellorganized comprehensive survey, which can serve both as a text and as a reference.' Linear Algebra and its Applications
'The book is well organized, completely readable, and very enlightening. For researchers in matrix analysis, matrix computations, applied linear algebra, or computational science, this second edition is a valuable book.' Jesse L. Barlow, Computing Reviews
'With the additional material and exceedingly clear exposition, this book will remain the goto book for graduate students and researchers alike in the area of linear algebra and matrix theory. I suspect there are few readers who will go through this book and not learn many new things. It is an invaluable reference for anyone working in this area.' Anne Greenbaum, SIAM Review
'The new edition is clearly a musthave for anyone seriously interested in matrix analysis.' Nick Higham, Applied Mathematics, Software and Workflow blog
