## Description

From the back cover: “Since the first edition of this book was published in 1996, tremendous progress has been made in the scientific and engineering disciplines regard the use of iterative methods for linear systems. The size and complexity of the new generation of linear and nonlinear systems arising in typical applications has grown. Solving the three-dimensional models of these problems using direct solvers is no longer effective. At the same time, parallel computing has penetrated these application areas as it became less expensive and standardized. Iterative methods are easier than direct solvers to implement on parallel computers but require approaches and solution algorithms that are different from classical methods.

“*Iterative Methods for Sparse Linear Systems, Second Edition* gives an in-depth, up-to-date view of practical algorithms for solving large-scale linear systems of equations. These equations can number in the millions and are sparse in the sense that each involves only a small number of unknowns. The methods described are iterative, i.e., they provide sequences of approximations that will converge to the solution.

“This new edition includes a wide range of the best methods available today. the author has added a new chapter on multigrid techniques, and has updated material throughout the text, particularly the chapters on sparse matrices, Krylov supspace methods, preconditioning techniques, and parallel preconditioners. Material on older topics has been removed or shortened, numerous exercises have been added, and many typographical errors have been corrected. The updated and expanded bibliography now includes more recent works emphasizing new and important research topics in this field.”

#### An Introduction to Random Matrices (Hardback)

$53.95

"The theory of random matrices plays an important role in many areas of pure mathematics and employs a variety of sophisticated mathematical tools (analytical, probabilistic, and combinatorial). This diverse array of tools, while attesting to the vitality of the field, presents several formidable obstacles to the newcomer, and even to the expert probabilist. This rigorous introduction to the basic theory is sufficiently self-contained to be accessible to graduate students in mathematics or related sciences who have mastered probability theory at the graduate level, but who have not necessarily been exposed to advanced notions of functional analysis, algebra, or geometry." — From the back cover

#### Undergraduate Texts in Mathematics: Groups and Symmetry (Hardback)

$37.29

"As prerequisites I assume a first course in linear algebra (including matrix multiplication and the representation of linear maps between Euclidean spaces by matrices, though not the abstract theory of vector spaces) plus familiarity with the basic properties of the real and complex numbers. It would be a pity to teach group theory without matrix groups available as a rich source of examples, especially since matrices are so heavily used in application." — Mark Anthony Armstrong, Author, in the Preface
