10 Summary In this chapter we found that linear equations can be written as matrices. Whether or not a solution exists, depends on the rank of a matrix. We also showed briefly what eigenvectors and eigenvalues are. Such matrix properties are useful in determining whether a system can be solved, or if a system is stable or not. a The following linear system is given: 2x1 + x2 + x3 x1 + 2x2 + 2x3 = = 4 3 x1 − x2 + 6x3 = 1. Rewrite this system in terms of Ax = b and then determine A−1 with use of cofactors.

This method is rather slow for large systems. MATLAB has a good solver of A\b itself. We found that back substitution is relatively fast and that repeatedly performing row operations slows down the solution process a lot. Decomposing a matrix into an L and a U matrix can be used to perform row operations systematically and much faster.

0 0 0 0 Here, rank(M ) = rank(Ma ) = 2, which is smaller than n, so there is an infinite number of solutions. 8 Eigenvalues and eigenvectors Matrices have characteristic directions, called eigenvectors. An eigenvector e is defined by: M e = λe. 27) When an eigenvector is multiplied by the matrix M , the result is the eigenvector itself. The scale constant λ is called the eigenvalue. Any multiple of an eigenvector is also an eigenvector. 27 that M e − Iλe = 0, or (M − Iλ)e = 0. In order to find values for λ, the determinant det(M − Iλ) should be zero.
