Gilbert Strang's textbooks have changed the entire approach to learning linear algebra -- away from abstract vector spaces to specific examples of the four fundamental subspaces: the column space and nullspace of A and A'. This new fifth edition has become more than a textbook for the basic linear algebra course. That is its first purpose and always will be. The new chapters about applications of the SVD, probability and statistics, and... more...

Introduction to Applied Math offers a comprehensive introductory treatment of the subject. The author’s explanations of Applied Mathematics are clearly stated and easy to understand. The reference includes a wide range of timely topics from symmetric linear systems to optimization as well as illuminating hands-on examples. Chapter 1: Symmetric Linear Systems; Chapter 2: Equilibrium Equations; Chapter 3: Equilibrium in the Continuous Case;... more...

This book presents the full range of computational science and engineering -- the equations, numerical methods, and algorithms with MATLAB® codes. The author has taught this material to thousands of engineers and scientists. The book is solution-based and not formula-based: it covers applied linear algebra and fast solvers, differential equations with finite differences and finite elements, Fourier analysis, optimization, and more.

This text has had an overwhelming response from readers. Lauded by some as a marriage between math and engineering, the text features useful and balanced explanations of wavelets for both engineers and mathematicians. The explanations of difficult topics are informal and very approachable, yet rigor is not sacrificed in the process. Also included in Wavelets and Filter Banks are many examples from the MATLAB Wavelet® Toolbox.

4th Edition printed by Brooks Cole India. Same content as the hardcover version. Pages are printed in black and white.


With a highly applied and computational focus, this book combines the important underlying theory with examples from electrical engineering, computer science, physics, biology and economics. An expanded list of computer codes in an appendix and more computer-solvable exercises in the text reflect Strang?s interest in computational linear algebra. Many exercises appear in the sections and in the chapter reviews. Exercises are simple but instructive.

Renowned professor and author Gilbert Strang demonstrates that linear algebra is a fascinating subject by showing both its beauty and value. While the mathematics is there, the effort is not all concentrated on proofs. Strang's emphasis is on understanding. He explains concepts, rather than deduces. This book is written in an informal and personal style and teaches real mathematics. The gears change in Chapter 2 as students reach the introduction of... more...

This informally written text provides students with a clear introduction into the subject of linear algebra. Topics covered include matrix multiplication, row reduction, matrix inverse, orthogonality and computation. The self-teaching book is loaded with examples and graphics and provides a wide array of probing problems, accompanying solutions, and a glossary. Chapter 1: Introduction to Vectors; Chapter 2: Solving Linear Equations; Chapter 3:... more...

Linear Algebra, Geodesy and GPS discusses algorithms, generally expressed in MATLAB, for geodesy and global positioning. Three parts cover basic linear algebra, the application to the (linear and also nonlinear) science of measurement, and the GPS system and its applications. This book has many strengths. It offers a variety of points of view. It is complete, helpful, and you may find an explanation that appeals to you. .A popular article from (June... more...
