Outline Identity Matrices The Inverse of a Matrix Deﬁnition Let A be an n × n matrix. 1 An n × n matrix B satisfying AB = In and BA = In is called an inverse of A. 2 If A has an inverse, we say that A is invertible. 3 If A is not invertible, we say A is singular. Inverse of a Matrix Outline Identity Matrices Inverse of a Matrix Examples Example 1 Show that B is an inverse of A, where A= 2 1 −2 −3 5 and B = Show that the matrix: 123 A= 4 5 6 000 is singular. −5 −2 −3 −1 Outline Identity Matrices Inverse of a Matrix Uniqueness of Inverses Theorem If A is an n × n matrix, and both B and C are inverses of A, then B = C ....
