Description


The present monograph is a state-of-art survey of the geometry of matrices whose study was initiated by L K Hua in the forties. The geometry of rectangular matrices, of alternate matrices, of symmetric matrices, and of hermitian matrices over a division ring or a field are studied in detail. The author's recent results on geometry of symmetric matrices and of hermitian matrices are included. A chapter on linear algebra over a division ring and one on affine and projective geometry over a division ring are also included. The book is clearly written so that graduate students and third or fourth year undergraduate students in mathematics can read it without difficulty.
