Outline Matrices Matrix Algebra Matrix Equations Trace and Transpose Matrix Notation and Terminology Matrices first came up in the context of systems of equations. Matrices are useful in their own right, outside of the context of linear systems. We proceed to abstract the concept and analyze its properties. Definition A matrix is a rectangular array A of numbers. If A has m rows and n columns, then we say that the matrix has size m × n . The number in row i and column j is denoted a ij , and we will write A = [ a ij ] or A = [ a ij ] m × n . Definition Two matrices A = [ a ij ] and B = [ b ij ] are equal if and only if they are the same size and a ij = b ij for each i and j .

Outline Matrices Matrix Algebra Matrix Equations Trace and Transpose Special Matrices A matrix with n rows and n columns is called a square matrix . A matrix with only one row is a row vector . A matrix with only one column is called a column vector . Row and column vectors are usually denoted by a lowercase boldface letter. The entries a 11 , a 22 , . . . , a nn in a square matrix are called the diagonal entries . Sometimes this is called the main diagonal to distinguish it from the other diagonal in the matrix. A matrix whose only nonzero entries lie on the diagonal is called a diagonal matrix . A matrix consisting only of zero entries is called a zero matrix . A scalar is a real number.

    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.
