Matrix Methods: Applied Linear Algebra and Sabermetrics, Fourth Edition, provides a unique and comprehensive balance between the theory and computation of matrices. Rapid changes in technology have made this valuable overview on the application of matrices relevant not just to mathematicians, but to a broad range of other fields. Matrix methods, the essence of linear algebra, can be used to help physical scientists-- chemists, physicists, engineers, statisticians, and economists-- solve real world problems.
