Book Description :
This book contains over 300 exercises and solutions that together cover a wide variety of topics in matrix algebra. They can be used for independent study or in creating a challenging and stimulating environment that encourages active engagement in the learning process. The requisite background is some previous exposure to matrix algebra of the kind obtained in a first course. The exercises are those from an earlier book by the same author entitled Matrix Algebra From a Statistician’s Perspective. They have been restated (as necessary) to stand alone, and the book includes extensive and detailed summaries of all relevant terminology and notation. The coverage includes topics of special interest and relevance in statistics and related disciplines, as well as standard topics. The overlap with exercises available from other sources is relatively small. This collection of exercises and their solutions will be a useful reference for students and researchers in matrix algebra. It will be of interest to mathematicians and statisticians.
This book is a supplement to the author’s previous book (Harville 1997) and contains the solutions to more than three-hundred exercises taken from it. … This book is especially useful for anyone interested in dealing with proof techniques and tricks concerning matrix algebra. … For everybody who finds pleasure in reading and learning from Harville’s text, this book will have a similar effect and should be viewed as a very useful supplement.
The author has collected well over 300 exercises from his earlier book Matrix Algebra From a Statistician’s Perspective into a separate volume and he added solutions. The book also contains extensive and detailed summaries of the relevant terminology and notation. … It will be very useful for any teacher of a linear algebra course as a source of exercises of various levels of difficulty.
