This comprehensive student manual has been designed to accompany the leading textbook by Bernard Schutz, A First Course in General Relativity, and uses detailed solutions, cross-referenced to several introductory and more advanced textbooks, to enable self-learners, undergraduates and postgraduates to master general relativity through problem solving. The perfect accompaniment to Schutz's textbook, this manual guides the reader step-by-step through over 200 exercises, with clear easy-to-follow derivations. It provides detailed solutions to almost half of Schutz's exercises, and includes 125 brand new supplementary problems that address the subtle points of each chapter. It includes a comprehensive index and collects useful mathematical results, such as transformation matrices and Christoffel symbols for commonly studied spacetimes, in an appendix. Supported by an online table categorising exercises, a Maple worksheet and an instructors' manual, this text provides an invaluable resource for all students and instructors using Schutz's textbook.

Building upon the sequence of topics of the popular 5th Edition, Linear Algebra with Applications, Alternate Seventh Edition provides instructors with an alternative presentation of course material. In this edition earlier chapters cover systems of linear equations, matrices, and determinates. The vector space Rn is introduced in chapter 4, leading directly into general vector spaces and linear transformations. This order of topics is ideal for those preparing to use linear equations and matrices in their own fields. New exercises and modern, real-world applications allow students to test themselves on relevant key material and a MATLAB manual, included as an appendix, provides 29 sections of computational problems.

Linear Algebra with Applications, Sixth Edition is designed for the introductory course in linear algebra typically offered at the sophomore level. The new Sixth Edition is reorganized and arranged into three important parts. Part 1 introduces the basics, presenting the systems of linear equations, vectors in Rn, matrices, linear transformations, and determinants. Part 2 builds on this material to discuss general vector spaces, such as spaces of matrices and functions. Part 3 completes the course with many of the important ideas and methods in Numerical Linear Algebra, such as ill-conditioning, pivoting, and the LU decomposition. New applications include the role of linear algebra in the operation of the search engine Google and the global structure of the worldwide air transportation network have been added as a means of presenting real-world scenarios of the many functions of linear algebra in modern technology. Clear, Concise, Comprehensive - Linear Algebra with Applications, Sixth Edition continues to educate and enlighten students, providing a broad exposure to the many facets of the field.

Revised and edited, Linear Algebra with Applications, Seventh Edition is designed for the introductory course in linear algebra and is organized into 3 natural parts. Part 1 introduces the basics, presenting systems of linear equations, vectors and subspaces of Rn, matrices, linear transformations, determinants, and eigenvectors. Part 2 builds on this material, introducing the concept of general vector spaces, discussing properties of bases, developing the rank/nullity theorem and introducing spaces of matrices and functions. Part 3 completes the course with many of the important ideas and methods of numerical linear algebra, such as ill-conditioning, pivoting, and LU decomposition. Offering 28 core sections, the Seventh Edition successfully blends theory, important numerical techniques, and interesting applications making it ideal for engineers, scientists, and a variety of other majors.
