AMS Chelsea Publishing: An Imprint of the American Mathematical Society

This treatise, by one of Russia's leading mathematicians, gives in easily accessible form a coherent account of matrix theory with a view to applications in mathematics, theoretical physics, statistics, electrical engineering, etc. The individual chapters have been kept as far as possible independent of each other, so that the reader acquainted with the contents of Chapter 1 can proceed immediately to the chapters of special interest. Until now, much of the material has been available only in the periodical literature.

#### Reviews & Endorsements

The first part (10 chapters; “General theory”) gives in satisfactory detail, and with more than customary completeness, the topics which belong to the main body of the … subjects … The point of view is broad and includes much abstract treatment …

The number of subjects which the book treats well is great … would appeal to a wide audience.

This is an excellent textbook.

-- Zentralblatt MATH

This is an excellent and unusual textbook on the application of the theory of matrices. In spite of intensive developments in the theory of matrices and appearance of other significant books, both general and specialized, in the last four decades, this monograph has retained its leading role. This textual matter includes many chapters of interest to applied mathematicians.
