MAT: Finding Background Information
For basic background information, overviews, and links to other related resources, check out these reference sources:
- Lecture Notes in Mathematics
This series reports on new developments in all areas of mathematics and their applications - quickly, informally and at a high level.
- A First Course in Differential Equations (eBook)
Designed for the standard post-calculus course in elementary differential equations. It is a brief, one-semester treatment of the basic ideas, models, and solution method.
- Matrix Mathematics (eBook)
Covers all of the major topics in matrix theory, including matrix transformations; polynomial matrices; matrix decompositions; generalized inverses; Kronecker and Schur algebra; positive-semidefinite matrices; vector and matrix norms; the matrix exponential and stability theory; and linear systems and control theory.
- An Introduction to Probability and Statistical Inference (eBook)
Provides a plethora of examples for each topic discussed, giving the reader more experience in applying statistical methods to different situations.
