Problem of inversion If all quantities involved were numbers, solving the following problem i.e. finding as a function of and Could formally be written as Of course, the definition of the “inverse”, or “one over” the matrix has to be defined properly, and the conditions in which it is legal for the inverse to exist need to be defined as well.

Determinants (square matrices) Consider a square 2 x 2 matrix The determinant of the square matrix is The determinant of a general n x n square matrix is a nonlinear operation which results in a polynomial in the coefficients of the matrix.
