"[The book's] approach is unique and should be an interesting and effective way to learn basic linear algebra, even for some who are primarily interested in linear algebra for its own sake". (--Choice) This revised edition presents the relevant aspects of transformational geometry, matrix algebra, and calculus to those who may be lacking the necessary mathematical foundations of applied multivariate analysis. It brings up-to-date many definitions of mathematical concepts and their operations It also clearly defines the relevance of the exercises to concerns within the business community and the social and behavioural sciences. Readers will gain a technical background for tackling applications-oriented multivariate texts and receive a geometric perspective for understanding multivariate methods. Mathematical Tools for Applied Multivariate Analysis, Revised Edition illustrates major concepts in matrix algebra, linear structures, and eigenstructures geometrically, numerically, and algebraically. The authors emphasize the applications of these techniques by discussing potential solutions to problems outlined early in the book. They also present small numerical examples of the various concepts and occasionally sketch proofs. -- ChoiceAbout the Author:
