'This handbook can be used as a reference by those actively engaged in scientific computation. It can also serve as a practical companion text in a numerical methods course that involves a significant amount of linear algebraic computation.' Applied Mechanics Review
'I recommend this book as a backup to a good text in a second course on numerical computations or as a good reference for individuals who need a guide to matrix computations using Fortran along with LINPACK and BLAS. The authors, SIAM, and the editorial board are to be complimented on a job well done …' Fortran Journal
Provides the user with a step-by-step introduction to Fortran 77, BLAS, LINPACK, and MATLAB. It is a reference that spans several levels of practical matrix computations with a strong emphasis on examples and 'hands on' experience.
