Introduction to Matrix Algebra
First Edition
Autar K Kaw, University of South Florida
Between 2002-2007, the Introduction to Matrix Algebra book
was downloaded free of charge by more than 40,000 users
from 50 different countries.
As part of the self-sustaining dissemination plan submitted to
the sponsor, the book is now available for a nominal charge
only via lulu.com as a soft cover book. Proceeds from the book
will allow the author to expand the book with more
examples/problems and additional chapters in the future.
Since our belief continues to embrace open and uncomplicated
dissemination, eight individual chapters (without exercise sets)
of the book in pdf form are still available free of charge.
Why then buy the book if the individual chapters are available for
free? The book consists of ten chapters spanning fundamentals
of matrix algebra, numerical methods for solving a set of
equations, and a treatment of adequacy of solutions and
eigenvalues.
The material in the book is
