A Polynomial Approach to Linear Algebra is a text which is heavily biased towards functional methods. In using the shift operator as a central object, it makes linear algebra a perfect introduction to other areas of mathematics, operator theory in particular. This technique is very powerful as becomes clear from the analysis of canonical forms (Frobenius, Jordan). It should be emphasized that these functional methods are not only of great theoretical interest, but lead to computational algorithms. Quadratic forms are treated from the same perspective, with emphasis on the important examples of Bezoutian and Hankel forms. These topics are of great importance in applied areas such as signal processing, numerical linear algebra, and control theory. Stability theory and system theoretic concepts, up to realization theory, are treated as an integral part of linear algebra. Finally there is a chapter on Hankel norm approximation for the case of scalar rational functions which allows the reader to access ideas and results on the frontier of current research.

Review:

From the reviews of the second edition:

“This interesting and unusual text shows that the connections between linear algebra and polynomials go far deeper than this. ... This is certainly a linear algebra text with a distinct personality all its own. ... it can be used with profit by people interested in the special topics at the end ... or by good students in a graduate linear algebra course with a solid background in abstract algebra who are interested in learning the material in a rather nonstandard way.” (Mark Hunacek, The Mathematical Association of America, May, 2012)

Book Description Springer-Verlag New York, Incorporated, New York, NY, U.S.A., 1996. Trade Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. 592 pages 100 illus., softcover. A Source Book for the History of Mathematics, but one which offers a different perspective by focusinng on algorithms. With the development of computing has come an awakening of interest in algorithms. Often neglected by historians and modern scientists, more concerned with the nature of concepts, algorithmic procedures turn out to have been instrumental in the development of fundamental ideas: practice led to theory just as much as the other way round. The purpose of this book is to offer a historical background to contemporary algorithmic practice. As New. Seller Inventory # 014018
