This book represents the first synthesis of the considerable body of new research into positive definite matrices. These matrices play the same role in noncommutative analysis as positive real numbers do in classical analysis. They have theoretical and computational uses across a broad spectrum of disciplines, including calculus, electrical engineering, statistics, physics, numerical analysis, quantum information theory, and geometry. Through detailed explanations and an authoritative and inspiring writing style, Rajendra Bhatia carefully develops general techniques that have wide applications in the study of such matrices. Bhatia introduces several key topics in functional analysis, operator theory, harmonic analysis, and differential geometry--all built around the central theme of positive definite matrices. He discusses positive and completely positive linear maps, and presents major theorems with simple and direct proofs. He examines matrix means and their applications, and shows how to use positive definite functions to derive operator inequalities that he and others proved in recent years. He guides the reader through the differential geometry of the manifold of positive definite matrices, and explains recent work on the geometric mean of several matrices. Positive Definite Matrices is an informative and useful reference book for mathematicians and other researchers and practitioners. The numerous exercises and notes at the end of each chapter also make it the ideal textbook for graduate-level courses.

The aim of this book is to concisely present fundamental ideas, results, and techniques in linear algebra and mainly matrix theory. The book contains ten chapters covering various topics ranging from similarity and special types of matrices to Schur complements and matrix normality. This book can be used as a textbook or a supplement for a linear algebra and matrix theory class or a seminar for senior undergraduate or graduate students. The book can also serve as a reference for instructors and researchers in the fields of algebra, matrix analysis, operator theory, statistics, computer science, engineering, operations research, economics, and other fields. Major changes in this revised and expanded second edition: -Expansion of topics such as matrix functions, nonnegative matrices, and (unitarily invariant) matrix norms -A new chapter, Chapter 4, with updated material on numerical ranges and radii, matrix norms, and special operations such as the Kronecker and Hadamard products and compound matrices -A new chapter, Chapter 10, on matrix inequalities, which presents a variety of inequalities on the eigenvalues and singular values of matrices and unitarily invariant norms.

Quaternions are a number system that has become increasingly useful for representing the rotations of objects in three-dimensional space and has important applications in theoretical and applied mathematics, physics, computer science, and engineering. This is the first book to provide a systematic, accessible, and self-contained exposition of quaternion linear algebra. It features previously unpublished research results with complete proofs and many open problems at various levels, as well as more than 200 exercises to facilitate use by students and instructors. Applications presented in the book include numerical ranges, invariant semidefinite subspaces, differential equations with symmetries, and matrix equations. Designed for researchers and students across a variety of disciplines, the book can be read by anyone with a background in linear algebra, rudimentary complex analysis, and some multivariable calculus. Instructors will find it useful as a complementary text for undergraduate linear algebra courses or as a basis for a graduate course in linear algebra. The open problems can serve as research projects for undergraduates, topics for graduate students, or problems to be tackled by professional research mathematicians. The book is also an invaluable reference tool for researchers in fields where techniques based on quaternion analysis are used.

Matrix Mathematics is a reference work for users of matrices in all branches of engineering, science, and applied mathematics. This book brings together a vast body of results on matrix theory for easy reference and immediate application. Each chapter begins with the development of relevant background theory followed by a large collection of specialized results. Hundreds of identities, inequalities, and matrix facts are stated rigorously and clearly with cross references, citations to the literature, and illuminating remarks. Twelve chapters cover all of the major topics in matrix theory: preliminaries; basic matrix properties; matrix classes and transformations; matrix polynomials and rational transfer functions; matrix decompositions; generalized inverses; Kronecker and Schur algebra; positive-semidefinite matrices; norms; functions of matrices and their derivatives; the matrix exponential and stability theory; and linear systems and control theory. A detailed list of symbols, a summary of notation and conventions, an extensive bibliography with author index, and an extensive index are provided for ease of use. The book will be useful for students at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, as well as for researchers and practitioners in all branches of engineering, science, and applied mathematics.
