A rectangular array of m × n numbers arranged in the form a a a a a a a a a n n m m mn 11 12 1 21 22 2 1 2 is called an m × n matrix . e.g. 2 3 4 1 8 5- is a 2 × 3 matrix. e.g. 2 7 3- is a 3 × 1 matrix. 2. If a matrix has m rows and n columns , it is said to be order m × n. e.g. 2 3 6 3 4 7 1 9 2 5 is a matrix of order 3 × 4. e.g. 1 2 2 1 5 1 3-- is a matrix of order 3. 3. [ ] a a a n 1 2 is called a row matrix or row vector . 4. b b b n 1 2 is called a column matrix or column vector . e.g. 2 7 3- is a column vector of order 3 × 1. e.g. [ ]--- 2 3 4 is a row vector of order 1 × 3. 5. If all elements are real, the matrix is called a real matrix. Prepared by K. F. Ngai Page 2 Matrices and Determinants Advanced Level Pure Mathematics 6. a a a a a a a a a n n n n nn 11 12 1 21 22 2 1 2 is called a square matrix of order n. And a a a nn 11 22 , , , is called the principal diagonal. e.g. 3 9 2- is a square matrix of order 2. 7. Notation : [ ] ( 29 a a A ij m n ij m n × × , , , ... 8.2 SOME SPECIAL MATRIX. Def.8.1 If all the elements are zero, the matrix is called a zero matrix or null matrix, denoted by O m n × . e.g. is a 2 × 2 zero matrix, and denoted by O 2 . Def.8.2 Let [ ] A a ij n n = × be a square matrix. (i) If a ij = for all i, j, then A is called a zero matrix. (ii) If a ij = for all i<j, then A is called a lower triangular matrix . (iii) If a ij = for all i>j, then A is called a upper triangular matrix . a a a a a a n n nn 11 21 22 1 2 a a a a a n nn 11 12 1 22 i.e. Lower triangular matrix Upper triangular matrix e.g. 1 2 1 1 4- is a lower triangular matrix. e.g. 2 3 5- is an upper triangular matrix....
