Keywords: numerical linear algebra, computational problems in control
Using an approach that author Alan Laub calls "matrix analysis for grownups," this new textbook introduces fundamental concepts of numerical linear algebra and their application to solving certain numerical problems arising in statespace control and systems theory. It is written for advanced undergraduate and beginning graduate students and can be used as a followup to Matrix Analysis for Scientists and Engineers (SIAM, 2005), a compact singlesemester introduction to matrix analysis for engineers and computational scientists by the same author.
Computational Matrix Analysis provides readers with
The book features a number of elements designed to help students learn to use numerical linear algebra in daytoday computing or research, including
Audience
This book is intended for students who are interested in quickly learning the fundamentals of numerical linear algebra. It is also appropriate for mathematically competent engineers and scientists engaged in computation who wish to delve more deeply into how and why their algorithms work or do not work.
