This classic textbook provides a modern and complete guide to the calculation of eigenvalues of matrices, written at an accessible level that presents in matrix notation the fundamental aspects of the spectral theory of linear operators in finite dimension.
Unique features of Eigenvalues of Matrices, Revised Edition are
Audience
The book's primary use is as a course text for undergraduate students in mathematics, applied mathematics, physics, and engineering. It is also useful as a reference for researchers or for engineers in hightech industries who are confronted with instability and chaos in intensive computing that results from the strong coupling of two distinct phenomena.
About the Author
Françoise Chatelin is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Toulouse and head of the Qualitative Computing Group at CERFACS. Before moving to CERFACS, she was a professor at the universities of Grenoble and Paris IX Dauphine. She also worked for a decade in the industrial research laboratories of IBM France and Thales, where she was in charge of intensive computing activities. Her areas of expertise include spectral theory for linear operators in Banach spaces and finite precision computation of very large eigenproblems. She currently explores the uncharted domain of mathematical computation that lies beyond real or complex analysis.
