A complete, self-contained introduction to matrix analysis theory and practice
Matrix methods have evolved from a tool for expressing statistical problems to an indispensable part of the development, understanding, and use of various types of complex statistical analyses. This evolution has made matrix methods a vital part of statistical education. Traditionally, matrix methods are taught in courses on everything from regression analysis to stochastic processes, thus creating a fractured view of the topic. This updated second edition of Matrix Analysis for Statistics offers readers a unique, unified view of matrix analysis theory and methods.
Matrix Analysis for Statistics, Second Edition provides in-depth, step-by-step coverage of the most common matrix methods now used in statistical applications, including eigenvalues and eigenvectors; the Moore-Penrose inverse; matrix differentiation; the distribution of quadratic forms; and more. The subject matter is presented in a theorem/proof format, allowing for a smooth transition from one topic to another. Proofs are easy to follow, and the author carefully justifies every step. Accessible even for readers with a cursory background in statistics, yet rigorous enough for students in statistics, this new edition is the ideal introduction to matrix analysis theory and practice.

Written in a theorem-proof format, this accessible text presents a mathematical development of the matrix theory and methods most commonly used in statistical applications. Self-contained chapters allow flexibility in topic choice and the author has made the proofs as easy to follow as possible, justifying every step except those which should be clearly obvious. Selective material such as eigenvalues and eigenvectors, the Moore-Penrose inverse, matrix differentiation, and the distribution of quadratic forms is thoroughly described. Extensive examples and exercises are incorporated at the end of each chapter.About the Author:
JAMES R. SCHOTT, Professor of Statistics at the University of Central Florida, received his PhD in statistics at the University of Florida. He has published extensively in the area of multivariate analysis with articles appearing in journals such as Biometrika, Journal of the American Statistical Association, and Journal of Multivariate Analysis.
