1 Systems of Linear Equations & Matrices Applications: Networks Balancing Equations Applications: Networks, Balancing Equations, Resource Allocation, Markov Chains Applications of Linear Systems & Matrices Applying Vectors & Matrices to help solve problems requires interpreting the problem in the notation of m t i e matrices Allocation of resources subject to a set of constraints Balancing chemical equations Network analysis (flow of fluid, traffic, data, goods & services through economic network etc.) Electrical networks (current, voltage – covered in physics) P d i Production costs Formulation of diets for humans, animals Simple Example: Shopping for fruit Simple Example: Shopping for fruit

2 Allocation of Resources: Bacteria in Tube A biologist has placed three strains of bacteria (I,II,III) in a test tube, where they will feed on three different food ( C) h d 2300 f 800 f sources (A,B,C). Each day 2300 units of A, 800 units of B and 1500 units of C are placed in the test tube, and each bacterium consumes a certain number of units of each food per day, as shown. How many bacteria of each strain can coexist in the test tube and consume all of the food? Bacteria Bacteria Bacteria Strain I Strain II Strain III Units of Food A 2 2 4 Units of Food B 1 2 0 Units of Food C 1 3 1 Allocation of Resources: Bacteria in Tube, Again Same problem as before, but now the daily consumption of food (in units per day) is as consumption of food (in units per day) is as shown in the table. Assume 1500 units of A, 3000 units of B and 4500 units of C are placed in the test tube each day. Bacteria Strain I Bacteria Strain II Bacteria Strain III Units of Food A 1 1 1 Units of Food B 1 2 3 Units of Food C 1 3 5

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
