Publisher Synopsis

Review of the first edition: 'The presentation is straightforward and extremely readable. The authors' enthusiasm pervades the book, and the printing is what we expect from this publisher. This will doubtless be the standard text for years to come.' American Scientist Review of the first edition: 'The reviewer strongly recommends that those working in either pure or applied linear algebra have this book on their desks.' SIAM Review Review of the first edition: 'There seems little doubt that the book will become a standard reference for research workers in numerical mathematics.' Computing Reviews Review of the first edition: 'The authors have done an excellent job of supplying linear algebraists and applied mathematicians with a well-organized comprehensive survey, which can serve both as a text and as a reference.' Linear Algebra and its Applications 'The book is well organized, completely readable, and very enlightening. For researchers in matrix analysis, matrix computations, applied linear algebra, or computational science, this second edition is a valuable book.' Jesse L. Barlow, Computing Reviews 'With the additional material and exceedingly clear exposition, this book will remain the go-to book for graduate students and researchers alike in the area of linear algebra and matrix theory. I suspect there are few readers who will go through this book and not learn many new things. It is an invaluable reference for anyone working in this area.' Anne Greenbaum, SIAM Review 'The new edition is clearly a must-have for anyone seriously interested in matrix analysis.' Nick Higham, Applied Mathematics, Software and Workflow blog "The second edition of Matrix Analysis, as curated by Roger Horn and Charlie Johnson, is the definitive source and indispensable reference for the foundations of matrix analysis. The material is comprehensive yet thoughtfully collected, and presented with insightful exposition and crystal-clear organization. This book is for anyone who comes in contact with matrices, be it applied scientist, casual user, or experienced researcher." Ilse Ipsen, North Carolina State University "The second edition of Matrix Analysis by Horn and Johnson is a significant enhancement (featuring a large number of recent research results, new and illuminating approaches, a comprehensive summary of basic linear algebra and matrix theory, hints on some problems, and a highly detailed index) of the hugely successful and widely used first edition. It is a monumental contribution on the theory and applications of matrices. I had the honor of using some chapters of the draft of the second edition in my Advanced Matrix Analysis class at Georgia State University. I am certain that the second edition of Matrix Analysis will be the standard graduate textbook and an indispensable reference book on matrix theory for many years to come." Zhongshan Li, Georgia State University "The book is well organized, completely readable, and very enlightening. For researchers in matrix analysis, matrix computations, applied linear algebra, or computational science, this second edition is a valuable book." Jesse L. Barlow, Computing Reviews "The book is a valuable modern textbook devoted to the fundamentals of this active area of research, having many applications in mathematics and other disciplines. The book is clearly and carefully edited. The book is useful for graduate students, researchers and any person who loves matrix analysis." Mohammad Sal Moslehian, Mathematical Reviews "With the additional material and exceedingly clear exposition, this book will remain the go-to book for graduate students and researchers alike in the area of linear algebra and matrix theory. I suspect there are few readers who will go through this book and not learn many new things. It is an invaluable reference for anyone working in this area."
