This book provides an extensive collection of problems with detailed solutions in introductory and advanced matrix calculus. Supplementary problems in each chapter will challenge and excite the reader, ideal for both graduate and undergraduate mathematics and theoretical physics students. The coverage includes systems of linear equations, linear differential equations, integration and matrices, Kronecker product and vec-operation as well as functions of matrices. Furthermore, specialized topics such as spectral theorem, nonnormal matrices and mutually unbiased bases are included. Many of the problems are related to applications for group theory, Lie algebra theory, wavelets, graph theory and matrix-valued differential forms, benefitting physics and engineering students and researchers alike. It also branches out to problems with tensors and the hyperdeterminant. Computer algebra programs in Maxima and SymbolicC++ have also been provided.
