Operations. • Basic matrix opertaions • Matrix-Vector multiplication • Matrix-Matrix multiplication 2. Linear Algebra III – Inverses and Determinants 2.1. Inverse Matrices. Example 1. Definition. Suppose that A = [ a ij ] is an n × n square matrix . If there exists an n × n square matrix B such that AB = BA = I n then B is called the inverse matrix of A and denoted by A- 1 . Note: • If the matrix A has an inverse, A is called invertible or nonsingular . • If A does not have inverse, then A is called singular . • If A is invertible, its inverse matrix is unique ; that is, if B and C are both inverse matrices of A , then B = C . Date : 2010-03-10. 1 2 JING LI • If A an invertible n × n matrix, then ( A- 1 )- 1 = A . • If A and B are invertible n × n matrices, then ( AB )- 1 = B- 1 A- 1 Question 1 for this subsection: How can we find out whether a given matrix has an inverse and what the inverse is?...
