Learn to: Solve linear algebra equations in several ways Put data in order with matrices Determine values with determinants Work with eigenvalues and eigenvectors Your hands-on guide to real-world applications of linear algebra Does linear algebra leave you feeling lost? No worries —this easy-to-follow guide explains the how and the why of solving linear algebra problems in plain English. From matrices to vector spaces to linear transformations, you'll understand the key concepts and see how they relate to everything from genetics to nutrition to spotted owl extinction. Line up the basics – discover several different approaches to organizing numbers and equations, and solve systems of equations algebraically or with matrices Relate vectors and linear transformations – link vectors and matrices with linear combinations and seek solutions of homogeneous systems Evaluate determinants – see how to perform the determinant function on different sizes of matrices and take advantage of Cramer's rule Hone your skills with vector spaces – determine the properties of vector spaces and their subspaces and see linear transformation in action Tackle eigenvalues and eigenvectors – define and solve for eigenvalues and eigenvectors and understand how they interact with specific matrices Open the book and find: Theoretical and practical ways of solving linear algebra problems Definitions of terms throughout and in the glossary New ways of looking at operations How linear algebra ties together vectors, matrices, determinants, and linear transformations Ten common mathematical representations of Greek letters Real-world applications of matrices and determinants

Matrix Algebra Useful for Statistics

Matrix Algebra Useful for Statistics

A thoroughly updated guide to matrix algebra and it uses in statistical analysis and features SAS®, MATLAB®, and R throughout This Second Edition addresses matrix algebra that is useful in the statistical analysis of data as well as within statistics as a whole. The material is presented in an explanatory style rather than a formal theorem-proof format and is self-contained. Featuring numerous applied illustrations, numerical examples, and exercises, the book has been updated to include the use of SAS, MATLAB, and R for the execution of matrix computations. In addition, André I. Khuri, who has extensive research and teaching experience in the field, joins this new edition as co-author. The Second Edition also: Contains new coverage on vector spaces and linear transformations and discusses computational aspects of matrices Covers the analysis of balanced linear models using direct products of matrices Analyzes multiresponse linear models where several responses can be of interest Includes extensive use of SAS, MATLAB, and R throughout Contains over 400 examples and exercises to reinforce understanding along with select solutions Includes plentiful new illustrations depicting the importance of geometry as well as historical interludes Matrix Algebra Useful for Statistics, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and first-year graduate level courses in statistics and other related disciplines. The book is also appropriate as a reference for independent readers who use statistics and wish to improve their knowledge of matrix algebra. THE LATE SHAYLE R. SEARLE, PHD, was professor emeritus of biometry at Cornell University. He was the author of Linear Models for Unbalanced Data and Linear Models and co-author of Generalized, Linear, and Mixed Models, Second Edition, Matrix Algebra for Applied Economics, and Variance Components, all published by Wiley. Dr. Searle received the Alexander von Humboldt Senior Scientist Award, and he was an honorary fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand. ANDRÉ I. KHURI, PHD, is Professor Emeritus of Statistics at the University of Florida. He is the author of Advanced Calculus with Applications in Statistics, Second Edition and co-author of Statistical Tests for Mixed Linear Models, all published by Wiley. Dr. Khuri is a member of numerous academic associations, among them the American Statistical Association and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics.
