The breadth of matrix theory's applications is reflected by this volume, which features material of interest to applied mathematicians as well as to control engineers studying stability of a servo-mechanism and numerical analysts evaluating the roots of a polynomial. Starting with a survey of complex symmetric, antisymmetric, and orthogonal matrices, the text advances to explorations of singular bundles of matrices and matrices with nonnegative elements. Applied mathematicians will take particular note of the full and readable chapter on applications of matrix theory to the study of systems of linear differential equations, and the text concludes with an exposition on the Routh-Hurwitz problem plus several helpful appendixes. 1959 ed.
