1 Lecture 8: Topic: Matrices Reading for this lecture H&P, Ch 3, Sect 3.4 pp. 138 – 148 H& P, Ch 6, Sect 6.4, 6.5, 6.6 pp. 249 – 259 Homework for Tutorial Week 4 Ex 3.4, pp 146 – 148 problems 1, 15 Matrix Inversion The inverse of a matrix, A, denoted by A -1 , is defined only if A is a square matrix and it is non-singular . If the determinant of A is non-zero, A 0, then it is non- singular. If A = 0 then it is singular. The determinant of a 2 x 2 matrix a b A c d = is A ad bc = The inverse of A can be calculated: A -1 = 1 Adj A A Some Definitions: Adjoint A is the transpose of the cofactor matrix. A cofactor matrix is a minor with the prescribed sign attached to it. Minor: that part of the matrix that remains when the row and column to which the element belongs is removed.
