Description
A thoroughly updated guide to matrix algebra and it uses in statistical analysis and features SAS®, MATLAB®, and R throughout
This Second Edition addresses matrix algebra that is useful in the statistical analysis of data as well as within statistics as a whole. The material is presented in an explanatory style rather than a formal theoremproof format and is selfcontained. Featuring numerous applied illustrations, numerical examples, and exercises, the book has been updated to include the use of SAS, MATLAB, and R for the execution of matrix computations. In addition, André I. Khuri, who has extensive research and teaching experience in the field, joins this new edition as coauthor. The Second Edition also:
 Contains new coverage on vector spaces and linear transformations and discusses computational aspects of matrices
 Covers the analysis of balanced linear models using direct products of matrices
 Analyzes multiresponse linear models where several responses can be of interest
 Includes extensive use of SAS, MATLAB, and R throughout
 Contains over 400 examples and exercises to reinforce understanding along with select solutions
 Includes plentiful new illustrations depicting the importance of geometry as well as historical interludes
Matrix Algebra Useful for Statistics, Second Edition is an ideal textbook for advanced undergraduate and firstyear graduate level courses in statistics and other related disciplines. The book is also appropriate as a reference for independent readers who use statistics and wish to improve their knowledge of matrix algebra.
