math.la.t.eqn.mat.inv

Matrix inverses are motivated as a way to solve a linear system. The general algorithm of finding an inverse by row reducing an augmented matrix is described, and then implemented for a 3x3 matrix. Useful facts about inverses are stated and then illustrated with sample 2x2 matrices. (put first: need Example of finding the inverse of a 3-by-3 matrix by row reducing the augmented matrix)

We saw in Theorem CINM that if a square matrix \(A\) is nonsingular, then there is a matrix \(B\) so that \(AB=I_n\text{.}\) In other words, \(B\) is halfway to being an inverse of \(A\text{.}\) We will see in this section that \(B\) automatically fulfills the second condition (\(BA=I_n\)). Example MWIAA showed us that the coefficient matrix from Archetype A had no inverse. Not coincidentally, this coefficient matrix is singular. We will make all these connections precise now. Not many examples or definitions in this section, just theorems.
