This unique book addresses advanced linear algebra from a perspective in which invariant subspaces are the central notion and main tool. It contains comprehensive coverage of geometrical, algebraic, topological, and analytic properties of invariant subspaces. The text lays clear mathematical foundations for linear systems theory and contains a thorough treatment of analytic perturbation theory for matrix functions.
Audience This book is appropriate for students, instructors, and researchers in applied linear algebra, linear systems theory, and signal processing. Its contents are accessible to readers who have had undergraduate-level courses in linear algebra and complex function theory.
