From Dimension-Free Matrix Theory to Cross-Dimensional Dynamic Systems illuminates the underlying mathematics of semi-tensor product (STP), a generalized matrix product that extends the conventional matrix product to two matrices of arbitrary dimensions. Dimension-varying systems feature prominently across many disciplines, and through innovative applications its newly developed theory can revolutionize large data systems such as genomics and biosystems, deep learning, IT, and information-based engineering applications.

Key Features

  • Provides, for the first time, cross-dimensional system theory that is useful for modeling dimension-varying systems.
  • Offers potential applications to the analysis and control of new dimension-varying systems.
  • Investigates the underlying mathematics of semi-tensor product, including the equivalence and lattice structure of matrices and monoid of matrices with arbitrary dimensions.


Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers worldwide working in mathematics, economics, and engineering

"Dimension-free matrix theory and the cross-dimensional dynamic system theory presented in this book may be useful tools to handle and even model dimension-varying systems. The intended application areas are (i) genetic regulatory networks, where cells may die or be born at any time; (ii) the internet or some other service-based networks, where some users may join in or withdraw from time to time; (iii) some engineering applications, the modeling of spacecraft systems and vehicle clutch systems; etc. The results in the book are new. This book starts a new direction for further study." --Mathematical Reviews Clippings
