The inverse of a square ± If [ A ] is a square matrix, there is another matrix [ A ] -1 , called the inverse of [ A ], for which [ A ][ A ] -1 =[ A ] -1 [ A ]=[I] ± The inverse can be computed in a column by column fashion by generating solutions with unit vectors as the right-hand-side constants: A [] x 1 {} = 1 0 0 A x 2 = 0 1 0 A x 3 = 0 0 1 A 1 = x 1 x 2 x 3
