many generalized inverses of A. Copyright c 2012 Dan Nettleton (Iowa State University) Statistics 511 13 / 27 An Algorithm for Finding a Generalized Inverse of a
Matrix A
1 2 Find any r × r nonsingular submatrix of A where r = rank(A). Call
this matrix W .
Invert and transpose W , ie., compute (W −1 ) . 3 Replace each element of W in A with the corresponding element
of (W −1 ) . 4 Replace all other elements in A with zeros. 5 Transpose the resulting matrix to obtain G, a generalized inverse
for A. Copyright c 2012 Dan Nettleton (Iowa State University) Statistics 511 14 / 27 Invariance of PX = X(X X)− X to Choice of (X X)−
If X X is nonsingular, then PX = X(X X)−1 X because the only
generalized inverse of X X is (X X)−1 .
If X X is singular, then PX = X(X X)− X and the choice of the
generalized inverse (X X)− does not matter because
PX = X(X X)− X will turn out to be the same matrix no matter
which generalized inverse of X X is used.
To see this, suppose (X X)− and (X X)− are any two generalized

inverses of X X. Then
X(X X)− X = X(X X)− X X(X X)− X = X(X X)− X .
