Unformatted text preview: Matrices, Vectors, and Moments Introduction to Biomaterials 14:125:208 Matrices • You can multiply two matrices if the number of columns in the first matrix equals the number of rows in the second matrix. If not, it is undefined – The product matrix's dimensions are (rows of first matrix) × (columns of the second matrix ) Matrices Matrices Consider the following 4 5 4 2 4 1 3 1 7 1 1 2 2 1 2 1 1 2 2 1 4 1 1 2 2 2 1 1 1 2 1 2 2 2 1 1 2 1 1 1 1 2 1 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 BA AB B A Similarly Matrices • The transpose of a matrix consists of switching the rows and columns • Thus if – A=a ij – A T =a ji • A symmetric matrix – Where A=A T Matrices • A special symmetric matrix is the identity matrix • It can also be shown that – AI = A = IA Matrices • The Determinant – 2x2 matrix – The determinant of – Is – and is written as Matrices • Examples – Find the determinants Matrices • Determinant of a 3x3 matrix – Can be applied to this course – The determinant is – and is written as Matrices • Example – By definition – Where – So the determinant is: Matrices • Inverse matrix – The inverse of matrix A is A-1 – Where A A-1 = 1 – For = ? ? ? ? and −1 = 1 ¡ ? ¢? ¢? ? – −1 = 1 £¤−¥¦ ? ¢? ¢? ?
