Features

Hallmark features of this title

Learner-Friendly Structure to Support Student Development
  • Starting with easier material and gradually developing complex concepts, the book ensures students do not hit a brick wall later in their learning.
  • The text continually returns to difficult topics, so students have more time to absorb and to review these critical concepts.
A Broad Range of Learning Aids to Improve Comprehension
  • Visualisation of Concepts throughout the chapters help students to grasp major points with the use of geometric interpretation.
  • Carefully selected Practice Problems before each exercise with complete set of solutions, focus on potential trouble spots in the exercise set or provide a “warm-up” for the exercises.

New to this Edition

New and updated features of this title

Teach your subject with the most up-to-date course structure and content.
  • New topics and applications in this edition now prepare students with foundations for machine learning, artificial intelligence, data analysis, and digital signal processing.
  • A newly added Chapter 9, previously only available online, offers learning material on optimisation.
  • Reorganised chapters updated to reflect the importance of certain topics show how they relate to one another, such as moving Markov Chains in chapter 4 to the section on Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors in chapter 5.
Enhance your teaching and engage students by enabling them to apply learnt concepts.
  • End of chapter projects added to this edition encourage students to drill deeper into their exploration of various topics, encouraging them to use creativity in problem solving.
  • 'Reasonable Answers' sections are now included, offering advice and helping students analyse whether their answers are consistent with data in the given questions.
