The
Schur Complement
and Its Applications, Ed., Springer, 2005. Chapter contributors: T. Ando (Hokkaido University, Japan), C. Brezinski (Universit\'{e} des Sciences et Technologies de Lille, France), R. Horn (University of Utah, Salt Lake City), C. Johnson (College of William and Mary, Williamsburg), JZ Liu (Xiangtang University, China), S. Puntanen (University of Tampere, Finland), R. Smith (University of Tennessee, Chattanooga), G. P.H. Styan (McGill University, Canada), and FZ Zhang (NSU, Fort Lauderdale). http://www.springerny.com Errata: p.25, line 5, T(\alph) should be T[\alpha]. p. 31, line 4, "z(A)  z(B) = d > 0" should read "z(A) = z(B)d, d > 0". p.53, omit "Y:" in the diaplay (2.2.16). p.111, there is a numbering error in this chapter (caused by merging the LaTex files when compiling the book). For instance, Theorem 4.8 should read Theorem 4.1 (i.e., the first theorem of chapter 4).
