E7 L14 2 Linear algebraic equations Linear algebraic equations Many engineering and science problems reduce to the simultaneous solution of several linear algebraic equations. Some typical examples: Curve-fitting of data Governing physical phenomena such as deformation of solids, flow of liquids, conduction of heat and electricity, etc. Design of engineering systems Example: simple truss structures Consist of beams Frictionless pin joints E7 L14 3 Linear algebraic equations Linear algebraic equations Consider n LINEAR equations and m unknowns. m unknowns n equations 11 12 1 1 21 22 2 2 1 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 m m n n m m n m m n A A A b A A A b A A A b x x x x x x x x x + + + = + + + = + + + = L L M L E7 L14 4 Linear algebraic equations Linear algebraic equations Consider n LINEAR equations and m unknowns.
