Description

Reviews

This text covers a unique combination of topics. It emphasizes discrete models using matrix representations, and plays down the importance of calculus and differential equations. Topics covered are difference equations, error-correcting codes ranging from supermarket bar codes to compact discs, control problems, such as putting a satellite into orbit, and optimizing the use of limited resources. The style is informal with many examples and exercises all designed to excite interest in mathematics for the contemporary world. A solutions manual is available for qualified instructors.

"Both students and lecturers should be impressed by this stimulating, informative and well-written text…The layout and style of presentation are exceptionally clear…As a learning tool, with its accompanying solution manual, it is to be highly recommended." -- M.A. Kelmanson, Bulletin Institute of Mathematics and Its Applications, Vol. 31, Nos. 9/10, Sept/Oct. 1995
