This book combines, in a novel and general way, an extensive development of the theory of families of commuting matrices with applications to zero-dimensional commutative rings, primary decompositions and polynomial system solving. It integrates the Linear Algebra of the Third Millennium, developed exclusively here, with classical algorithmic and algebraic techniques. Even the experienced reader will be pleasantly surprised to discover new and unexpected aspects in a variety of subjects including eigenvalues and eigenspaces of linear maps, joint eigenspaces of commuting families of endomorphisms, multiplication maps of zero-dimensional affine algebras, computation of primary decompositions and maximal ideals, and solution of polynomial systems.

This book completes a trilogy initiated by the uncharacteristically witty books Computational Commutative Algebra 1 and 2 by the same authors. The material treated here is not available in book form, and much of it is not available at all. The authors continue to present it in their lively and humorous style, interspersing core content with funny quotations and tongue-in-cheek explanations.

"The monograph could be used as a complementary source for classical Linear Algebra as well as an introductory book to Commutative Algebra and a starting lecture for Computer Algebra. For an interested reader it could be also a research monograph for an introduction to modern algebra. Even an experienced reader will discover new and unexpected aspects of the theory." (Peter Schenzel, zbMATH 1360.13001, 2017)

"The book is well-written and includes many examples. Each chapter begins with a summary that motivates the ... mathematics to follow, and every method is accompanied by an algorithms ... . The book contains many new results and concepts, along with known ideas drawn from a widely scattered literature. ... Overall, this book is a worthy contribution to both linear and commutative algebra." (David A. Cox, Computeralgebra Rundbrief, 2017)

"The book is a textbook for advanced undergraduate and for graduate courses. Surprisingly, the experienced reader will also find new and unexpected aspects. I like the humorous style of the authors. The funny quotations help one enjoy the topic." (Mathematical Reviews, 2017)
