Название: Lectures on Matrices
Автор: Wedderburn J.N.M.
This book contains lectures on matrices given at Princeton University at various times since 1920. It was my intention to include full notes on the history of the subject, but this has proved impossible owing to circumstances beyond my control, and I have had to content myself with very brief notes (see Appendix I). A bibliography is given in Appendix II. In compiling it, especially for the period of the last twenty-five years, there was considerable difficulty in deciding whether to include certain papers which, if they had occurred earlier, would probably have found a place there. In the main, I have not included articles which do not use matrices as an algebraic calculus, or whose interest lies in some other part of mathematics, rather than in the theory of matrices; but consistency in this has probably not been attained.
Since these lectures have been prepared over a somewhat lengthy period of time, they owe much to the criticism of many friends. In particular, Professor A. A. Albert and Dr. J. L. Dorroh read most of the MS making many suggestions, and the former gave material help in the preparation of the later sections of Chapter X.
