The purpose of these notes is to present the mathematical ideas underlying a variety of biological linear systems to those biologists who, while unfamiliar with the general subject of discrete linear systems, have some experience with matrix algebra. Our approach is informal. In general we begin with an example and abstract from it the required definitions. No proofs are included. We do discuss certain computational techniques and shortcuts which are frequently used by mathematicians working with matrices, but which are seldom mentioned in the biological literature. Some of these are based on the theory of similar matrices. We have included some references to this theory but the computations do not require them. (source : Zentralblatt)
