This book develops the subject of matrices with special reference to differential equations and classical mechanics. It is intended to bring to the student of applied mathematics, with no previous knowledge of matrices, an appreciation of their conciseness, power and convenience in computation. Worked numerical examples, many of which are taken from aerodynamics, are included.show more
