 Publisher's summary

This is the first book of its kind which teaches matrix algebra, allowing the student to learn the material by actually working with matrix objects in modern computer environment of R. Instead of a calculator, R is a vastly more powerful free software and graphics system. This book provides a comprehensive overview of matrix theory without being bogged down in proofs or tedium. The reader can check each matrix result with numerical examples of exactly what they mean and understand their implications. This book does not shy away from advanced topics, especially the ones with practical applications.
