Otherwise, we say it is inconsistent . • If b 1 = b 2 = ··· = b m = 0, when we call this system a homogeneous system . Otherwise, we call it an inhomogeneous system . A homogeneous system is always consistent because one has the trivial solution x 1 = x 2 = ··· = x n = 0. • A second system of equations c 11 x 1 + c 12 x 2 + ··· + c 1 n x n = d 1 c 21 x 1 + c 22 x 2 + ··· + c 2 n x n = d 2 . . . . . . . . . . . . c r 1 x 1 + c r 2 x 2 + ··· + c rn x n = d r is equivalent to the first if they have exactly the same solutions. 1.2: Matrices • An m × n matrix is an array with m columns and n rows: A = bracketleftbig a ij bracketrightbig = a 11 a 12 ... a 1 n a 21 a 22 ... a 2 n . . . . . . . . . . . . a m 1 a m 2 ... a mn . The i th row and j th columns of A are row i ( A ) = bracketleftbig a i 1 a i 2 ··· a in bracketrightbig and col j ( A ) = a 1 j a 2 j . . . a mj , respectively. • An nvector is an n × 1 matrix: x = x 1 x 2 . . . x n . • If A is an n × m matrix and B is a q × p matrix, then we say A = B if n = q , m = p , and a ij = b ij . • A a square matrix if m = n . The numbers a 11 , a 22 , ... a nn form the main diagonal . • Matrix addition (the sum ) and subtraction (the difference ) is defined componentwise for matrices of the same size: A = bracketleftbig a ij bracketrightbig , B = bracketleftbig b ij bracketrightbig = ⇒ A ± B = bracketleftbig a ij ± b ij bracketrightbig . 1 2 MA 265 MIDTERM #1 REVIEW • Scalar multiplication is the product of an m × n matrix A and a number r : A = bracketleftbig a ij bracketrightbig = ⇒ r A = bracketleftbig r a ij bracketrightbig . • A linear combination of a collection A 1 , A 2 , ..., A k of m × n matrices and a collection c 1 , c 2 , ..., c k of numbers is the m × n matrix c 1 A 1 + c 2 A 2 + ··· + c k A k . • Summation notation is shorthand for expressing such a sum: k summationdisplay i =1 a i = a 1 + a 2 + ··· + a k . • The transpose of an m × n matrix A is that n × m matrix A T formed by interchanging the rows and columns of A : A = a 11 a 12 ... a 1 n a 21 a 22 ... a 2 n . . . . . . . . . . . . a m 1 a m 2 ... a mn = ⇒ A T = a 11 a 21 ... a n 1 a 12 a 22 ... a n 2 ....
