Outline Identity Matrices Inverse of a Matrix Properties of Matrix Powers Theorem If A is an n × n matrix and r , s ∈ Z, then (assuming A is invertible when necessary): 1 Ar As = Ar +s . 2 (Ar )s = Ars . 3 If A is invertible, then so is A−1 , and (A−1 )−1 = A. 4 If A is invertible, then so is Ar , and (Ar )−1 = A−r . 5 6 If A is invertible and k = 0, then aA is invertible, and 1 (kA)−1 = A−1 . k If A is invertible, then so is AT , and (AT )−1 = (A−1 )T .
