About the Authors
  • The purpose of this book, which was first published in 1978, is to give a complete account of the theory of permanents, their history and applications. This volume was the first complete account of the theory of permanents, covering virtually the whole of the subject, a feature that no simple survey of the theory of matrices can even attempt. The work also contains many results stated without formal proofs. This book can be used as a textbook at the advanced undergraduate or graduate level. The only prerequisites are a standard undergraduate course in the theory of matrices and a measure of mathematical maturity.

    Review of the hardback: ' … the first complete account of the theory of permanents … Minc's enthusiasm never wanes, and the book is a joy to read. Permanents is unquestionably the definitive treatise on the subject' American Scientist
