Clear prose, tight organization, and a wealth of examples and computational techniques make Basic Matrix Algebra with Algorithms and Applications an outstanding introduction to linear algebra. The author designed this treatment specifically for freshman majors in mathematical subjects and upper-level students in natural resources, the social sciences, business, or any discipline that eventually requires an understanding of linear models. With extreme pedagogical clarity that avoids abstraction wherever possible, the author emphasizes minimal polynomials and their computation using a Krylov algorithm. The presentation is highly visual and relies heavily on work with a graphing calculator to allow readers to focus on concepts and techniques rather than on tedious arithmetic. Supporting materials, including test preparation Maple worksheets, are available for download from the Internet. This unassuming but insightful and remarkably original treatment is organized into bite-sized, clearly stated objectives. It goes well beyond the LACSG recommendations for a first course while still implementing their philosophy and core material. Classroom tested with great success, it prepares readers well for the more advanced studies their fields ultimately will require.

This textbook is an introduction to algebra via examples. The book moves from properties of integers, through other examples, to the beginnings of group theory. Applications to public key codes and to error correcting codes are emphasised. These applications, together with sections on logic and finite state machines, make the text suitable for students of computer science as well as mathematics students. Attention is paid to historical development of the mathematical ideas. This second edition contains new material on mathematical reasoning skills and a new chapter on polynomials has been added. The book was developed from first-level courses taught in the UK and USA. These courses proved successful in developing not only a theoretical understanding but also algorithmic skills. This book can be used at a wide range of levels: it is suitable for first- or second-level university students, and could be used as enrichment material for upper-level school students.

The [lambda]-calculus lies at the very foundations of computer science. Besides its historical role in computability theory it has had significant influence on programming language design and implementation, denotational semantics, and domain theory. The book emphasizes the proof theory for the type-free [lambda]-calculus. The first six chapters concern this calculus and cover the basic theory, reduction, models, computability, and the relationship between the [lambda]-calculus and combinatory logic. Chapter 7 presents a variety of typed calculi; first the simply typed [lambda]-calculus, then Milner-style polymorphism and, finally, the polymorphic [lambda]-calculus. Chapter 8 concerns three variants of the type-free [lambda]-calculus that have recently appeared in the research literature: the lazy [lambda]-calculus, the concurrent [gamma]-calculus and the [lambda][sigma]-calculus. The final chapter contains references and a guide to further reading. There are exercises throughout.
