Solving sets of linearly
independent equations
(Ax = b)
1
Much of the worlds computing power is dedicated to solving sets
of linear equations, Ax = b.
x is a Nx1 array containing N unknown values. We want to solve for
all the unknowns.
A is a NxN array co

Can have any number of
dimensions. Most common are
vector - one dimension (a single
row or column)
matrix - two or more dimensions
