Unformatted text preview: In particular, the inverse of A is unique. Proof. We have AB = In = BA and AC = In = CA. Therefore, C = CIn = C (AB ) = (CA)B = In B = B If A is an invertible n × n matrix, we will denote its unique inverse by A−1 . Thus we have: A−1 A = In = AA−1 .

(AB )−1 = B −1 A−1 means that AB has inverse B −1 A−1 . Check! Outline Identity Matrices Inverse of a Matrix Powers of Matrices Let r be a positive int...
