Reviews - What do customers think about Matrix Algebra & Its Applications to Statistics & Econometrics?
mostly just a standard linear algebra text Dec 22, 2004
It appears that some statisticians don't get a good grounding in linear algebra. At least, that is the contention of the authors, who have proceeded to write a linear algebra text, with an emphasis on statistics and economics.
Much of the text offers little new from any standard text on linear algebra. The topics include linear transformations and matrices, Euclidean spaces, unitary mappings, projection operations onto subspaces, idempotent operators... There is a slight discussion on various inequalities useful in statistics.
But overall, if you already have a text on linear algebra, this may be superfluous.
