Unary Matrix Operations
After reading this chapter, you should be able to:
1.
know what unary operations means,
2.
find the transpose of a square matrix and it’s relationship to symmetric matrices,
3.
find the trace of a matrix, and
4.
find the determinant of a matrix by the cofactor method.
What is the transpose of a matrix?
Let
]
[
A
be a
n
m
×
matrix.
Then
]
[
B
is the transpose of the
]
[
A
if
ij
ij
a
b
=
for all
i
and
j
.
That is, the
th
i
row and the
th
j
column element of
]
[
A
is the
th
j
row and
th
i
column
element of
]
[
B
.
Note,
]
[
B
would be a
m
n
×
matrix.
The transpose of
]
[
A
is denoted by
T
]
[
A
.

Note, the transpose of a row vector is a column vector and the transpose of a column vector
is a row vector.
Also, note that the transpose of a transpose of a matrix is the matrix itself, that is,
