Handbook for Matrix ComputationsHandbook for Matrix Computations

Thomas F. Coleman and Charles Van Loan

Frontiers in Applied Mathematics 4

"This handbook can be used as a reference by those actively engaged in scientific computation. It can also serve as a practical companion text in a numerical methods course that involves a significant amount of linear algebraic computation." -- Applied Mechanics Review, Vol. 42, No. 2, February 1989.

"I recommend this book as a backup to a good text in a second course on numerical computations or as a good reference for individuals who need a guide to matrix computations using Fortran along with LINPACK and BLAS. The authors, SIAM, and the editorial board are to be complimented on a job well done..." -- Fortran Journal, May/June 1989, C. L. Ritz.

Provides the user with a step-by-step introduction to Fortran 77, BLAS, LINPACK, and MATLAB. It is a reference that spans several levels of practical matrix computations with a strong emphasis on examples and "hands on" experience.

Adopted for classroom use by Memorial University of Newfoundland, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Alabama (partial listing).
