Advanced Topics in Linear Algebra

Weaving Matrix Problems through the Weyr Form

Kevin O'Meara, John Clark, and Charles Vinsonhaler

  • Gives the only comprehensive account of the Weyr matrix canonical form and its applications
  • Many applications discussed have not appeared previously in book form
  • Links the Weyr form to module theory over a general noncommutative ring without finiteness conditions, as against the classical use of modules over principal ideal domains in the development of the Jordan form
  • Devotes an entire chapter to the algebraic geometry connections to the linear algebra problems
