Matrices Theory and Applications – Denis Serre – 1st Edition

In this book, Serre begins by providing a clean and concise introduction to the basic theory of matrices. He then goes on to give many interesting applications of matrices to different aspects of and also other areas of and engineering.

The book mixes together algebra, , theory and numerical . As such, this book will provide many scientists, not just mathematicians, with a useful and reliable reference. It is intended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students with either applied or theoretical goals. This book is based on a course given by the author at the Ecole Normale Superieure Lyon.

Denis Serre is Professor of Mathematics at Ecole Normale Superieure de Lyon and a former member of the Institut Universaire de France. He is a member of numerous editorial boards and the author of Systems of Conservation Laws (Cambridge University Press 2000).

The present book is a translation of the original French edition, Les Matrices: Theorie et Pratique, published by Dunod (2001).
