Chapter 9: Gaussian Elimination Uchechukwu Ofoegbu Temple University Chapter 9: Gaussian Elimination ES 240: Scientific and Engineering Computation. Chapter 9: Gaussian Elimination Graphical Method Graphical Method The solution of a small set of simultaneous equations, can be obtained by graphing them and determining the location of the intercept ES 240: Scientific and Engineering Computation. Chapter 9: Gaussian Elimination Graphical Method (cont) Graphical Method (cont) Graphing the equations can also show systems where: a) No solution exists The coefficient matrix is singular (determinant = 0) b) Infinite solutions exist The coefficient matrix is singular (determinant = 0) c) System is illconditioned The coefficient matrix is almost singular (determinant 0) ES 240: Scientific and Engineering Computation. Chapter 9: Gaussian Elimination Determinants Determinants The determinant D = A  of a matrix is formed from the coefficients of [A]. Determinants for small matrices are: Determinants for matrices larger than 3 x 3 can be very complicated. 1 1 a 11 = a 11 2 2 a 11 a 12 a 21 a 22 = a 11 a 22 a 12 a 21 3 3 a 11 a 12 a 13 a 21 a 22 a 23 a 31 a 32 a 33 = a 11 a 22 a 23 a 32 a 33 a 12 a 21 a 23 a 31 a 33 + a 13 a 21 a 22 a 31 a 32 ES 240: Scientific and Engineering Computation.ES 240: Scientific and Engineering Computation....
