Matrix algebra is a vital tool for mathematics in the social sciences, and yet many social scientists have only a rudimentary grasp of it. This volume serves as a complete introduction to matrix algebra, requiring no background knowledge beyond basic school algebra. Namboodiri's presentation is smooth and readable: it begins with the basic definitions and goes on to explain elementary manipulations and the concept of linear dependence, eigenvalues, and eigenvectors -- supplying illustrations through fully-worked examples of each.
