Matrices for Engineers is designed to supply engineers and engineering students with a foundation in matrix theory and versatility in the manipulation of matrices. The book's approach provides the necessary material in a direct manner, with examples that illustrate each concept as it appears. The book emphasizes methodology and includes topics such as how to obtain the characteristic polynomial of a matrix; the factorizations of a coefficient matrix for ease of computation; and linear transformations from an intuitive and engineering point of view, in which conditions at one point in a system induce conditions at another. Indeed, it covers computational techniques and goes beyond matrix algebra to include matrix calculus.
Perfect for self-study, Matrices for Engineers also functions as a supplement to Oxford University Press's popular
Linear Circuit Analysis, Second Edition (0-19-513666-7), by Raymond A. DeCarlo and Pen-Min Lin or any introductory electrical engineering text, such as
Introduction to Electrical Engineering (0-19-513604-7) by Mulukutla S. Sarma.
It can also be used to help in preparing for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE)/Engineer-in-Training (EIT) exam and the Professional Engineer (PE) exam.
