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, AndrE 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.
