Matrix Analysis for Statistics
Lowest new price: $122.41
Lowest used price: $94.95
List price: $164.00
Author: James R. Schott

A complete, selfcontained introduction to matrix analysis theory and practice Matrix methods have evolved from a tool for expressing statistical problems to an indispensable part of the development, understanding, and use of various types of complex statistical analyses. This evolution has made matrix methods a vital part of statistical education. Traditionally, matrix methods are taught in courses on everything from regression analysis to stochastic processes, thus creating a fractured view of the topic. This updated second edition of Matrix Analysis for Statistics offers readers a unique, unified view of matrix analysis theory and methods. Matrix Analysis for Statistics, Second Edition provides indepth, stepbystep coverage of the most common matrix methods now used in statistical applications, including eigenvalues and eigenvectors; the MoorePenrose inverse; matrix differentiation; the distribution of quadratic forms; and more. The subject matter is presented in a theorem/proof format, allowing for a smooth transition from one topic to another. Proofs are easy to follow, and the author carefully justifies every step. Accessible even for readers with a cursory background in statistics, yet rigorous enough for students in statistics, this new edition is the ideal introduction to matrix analysis theory and practice. The book features:  Selfcontained chapters, which allow readers to select individual topics or use the reference sequentially
 Extensive examples and chapterend practice exercises, many of which involve the use of matrix methods in statistical analyses
 New material on elliptical distributions and new expanded coverage of such topics as eigenvalue inequalities and matrices partitioned in 2 by 2 form, in particular, results relating the rank, generalized inverse, eigenvalues of such matrices to their submatrices, and much more
 Optional sections for mathematically advanced readers

Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems (Fundamentals of Algorithms)
Lowest new price: $58.99
Lowest used price: $45.00
List price: $72.50
Author: Timothy A. Davis

Fundamentals of Algorithms 2 Computational scientists often encounter problems requiring the solution of sparse systems of linear equations. Attacking these problems efficiently requires an indepth knowledge of the underlying theory, algorithms, and data structures found in sparse matrix software libraries. Here, Davis presents the fundamentals of sparse matrix algorithms to provide the requisite background. The book includes CSparse, a concise downloadable sparse matrix package that illustrates the algorithms and theorems presented in the book and equips readers with the tools necessary to understand larger and more complex software packages. With a strong emphasis on MATLAB® and the C programming language, Direct Methods for Sparse Linear Systems equips readers with the working knowledge required to use sparse solver packages and write code to interface applications to those packages. The book also explains how MATLAB performs its sparse matrix computations. This invaluable book is essential to computational scientists and software developers who want to understand the theory and algorithms behind modern techniques used to solve large sparse linear systems. The book also serves as an excellent practical resource for students with an interest in combinatorial scientific computing. Preface; Chapter 1: Introduction; Chapter 2: Basic algorithms; Chapter 3: Solving triangular systems; Chapter 4: Cholesky factorization; Chapter 5: Orthogonal methods; Chapter 6: LU factorization; Chapter 7: Fillreducing orderings; Chapter 8: Solving sparse linear systems; Chapter 9: CSparse; Chapter 10: Sparse matrices in MATLAB; Appendix: Basics of the C programming language; Bibliography; Index. "Overall, the book is magnificent. It fills a longfelt need for an accessible textbook on modern sparse direct methods. Its choice of scope is excellent.."

Spectra and Pseudospectra: The Behavior of Nonnormal Matrices and Operators
Lowest new price: $77.47
Lowest used price: $61.98
List price: $95.00
Author: Lloyd N. Trefethen
Brand: Brand: Princeton University Press

Pure and applied mathematicians, physicists, scientists, and engineers use matrices and operators and their eigenvalues in quantum mechanics, fluid mechanics, structural analysis, acoustics, ecology, numerical analysis, and many other areas. However, in some applications the usual analysis based on eigenvalues fails. For example, eigenvalues are often ineffective for analyzing dynamical systems such as fluid flow, Markov chains, ecological models, and matrix iterations. That's where this book comes in. This is the authoritative work on nonnormal matrices and operators, written by the authorities who made them famous. Each of the sixty sections is written as a selfcontained essay. Each document is a lavishly illustrated introductory survey of its topic, complete with beautiful numerical experiments and all the right references. The breadth of included topics and the numerous applications that provide links between fields will make this an essential reference in mathematics and related sciences.

Linear Algebra and Matrix Analysis for Statistics (Chapman & Hall/CRC Texts in Statistical Science)
Lowest new price: $72.42
Lowest used price: $73.41
List price: $79.95
Author: Sudipto Banerjee

Linear Algebra and Matrix Analysis for Statistics offers a gradual exposition to linear algebra without sacrificing the rigor of the subject. It presents both the vector space approach and the canonical forms in matrix theory. The book is as selfcontained as possible, assuming no prior knowledge of linear algebra. The authors first address the rudimentary mechanics of linear systems using Gaussian elimination and the resulting decompositions. They introduce Euclidean vector spaces using less abstract concepts and make connections to systems of linear equations wherever possible. After illustrating the importance of the rank of a matrix, they discuss complementary subspaces, oblique projectors, orthogonality, orthogonal projections and projectors, and orthogonal reduction. The text then shows how the theoretical concepts developed are handy in analyzing solutions for linear systems. The authors also explain how determinants are useful for characterizing and deriving properties concerning matrices and linear systems. They then cover eigenvalues, eigenvectors, singular value decomposition, Jordan decomposition (including a proof), quadratic forms, and Kronecker and Hadamard products. The book concludes with accessible treatments of advanced topics, such as linear iterative systems, convergence of matrices, more general vector spaces, linear transformations, and Hilbert spaces.
