MATRICES
A matrix is dened as a rectangular array(or arrangement in rows or columns) of
scalars.
If mn numbers (real or complex) or functions are arranged in the form of a
rectangular array A having m rows and n columns then A is called an mn matrix.
Each of the mn numbers is called an elements of the matrix. An m n matrix is
also called a matrix of order mn.
An mn matrix is usually written as

An mn matrix A may be written as
A = [a
ij
]
mn
or A = [a
ij
], where i = 1, 2, 3, ..., m; j = 1, 2, 3, ..., n.
APPLICATION OF MATRICES

neous equations and linear transformation. e.g., the set of simultaneous equations

The theory of matrices has been found of great utility in many branches of higher
mathematics such as algebraic and dierential equations, astronomy, mechanics, the-
ory of electrical circuits, quantum mechanics, nuclear physics and aerodynamics.
1.1 CHARACTERISTIC EQUATION
The characteristic equation is the equation which is solved to nd a matrixs
eigenvalues, also called the characteristic polynomial.
Let A = [a
ij
] be a square matrix of order n. the characteristic equation in
variable , is dened by
|A I| = 0.
The equation |A I| = 0 is called characteristic equation of matrix A.
In a 2 2 case, where:
A =
_
_
a
11
a
12
a
21
a
22
_
_
then:
A I =
_
_
a
11
a
12
a
21
a
22

_
_
so the characteristic equation is:
|A I| = (a
11
)(a
22
) a
21
a
12
= 0
or simply:
|A I| =
2
(a
11
+ a
22
) + (a
11
a
22
a
21
a
12
) = 0.

1.2 CHARACTERISTIC POLYNOMIAL
The determinant |A I| when expanded will give a polynomial of degree n
in which is called characteristic polynomial of matrix A.

1.3 EIGEN VALUES AND EIGEN VECTORS
The roots
1
,
2
...
n
of the characteristic equation are called eigen values or
characteristic roots. Corresponding to each characteristic root there corresponds
non-zero vector X which satises the equation (AI)X = 0. The non-zero vectors
X are called eigen vectors or characteristic vectors.
If we take the rst eigenvalue
1
then our equation system is
(A
1
I)x = 0
For the 2 2 case, we can write this out in a systems of two equations:
(a
11

1
)x1 + a
12
x
2
= 0
a
21
x
1
+ (a
22

1
)x
2
= 0
Although it might not be obvious, the rst equation is a linear transformation of the
second equation, thus the ratio x
1
/x
2
will be the same regardless of how we solve
it, i.e.
a
12
/(a
11

1
) = x
1
/x
2
= (a
22

1
)/a
21
Once x
1
/x
2
is obtained, the only thing that remains to obtain some levels of x
1
and
x
2
, we have to normalize the system, e.g. we could take x
2
= 1 or impose x
1
+x
2
= 1
or x
2
1
+x
2
2
= 1 as a normalization device. From this we would thus obtain the vector
x = [x
1
x
2
]
T
. This x is the eigenvector associated with the eigenvalue
1
. If we then
took the second eigenvalue
2
, we would also nd another eigenvector x associated
with that by the same means. In an n-dimensional system, we would have n eigen-
values with associated eigenvectors.

1.6 DIAGONALISATION OF A MATRIX:
Similarity of Matrices:
Let A and B be two square matrices of the same order. Then the matrix B is
said to be similar to the matrix A if there exists a non-singular matrix P such that
B = P
1
AP. The transformation A to P
1
AP is called similarity transformation.
Property:
Two similar matrices have the same eigenvalues.
Proof:
Let A and B be two similar matrices.
Then by denition, B = P
1
AP
B I = P
1
AP I
=P
1
AP P
1
IP
=P
1
(A I)P
|B I| = |P
1
||A I||P|
=|A I||P
1
P|
=|A I||I|
=|A I|
Thus A and B have the same Characteristic polynomials and hence the same char-
acteristic equations.
A and B have the same eigenvalues.
DIAGONALISATION OF A MATRIX BY MEANS OF A SIMILAR-
ITY TRANSFORMATION:
A square matrix A of order n has n linearly independent Eigenvectors, the a
matrix M can be found such that M
1
AM = D, where D is a diagonal matrix, is
12
called diagonalisation of the matrix A. As M
1
AM = D is a similarity transforma-
tion, the matrices A and D are similar and hence A and D have the same eigenvalues.
Denition:
A square matrix A is said to be orthogonal if A.A
T
= A
T
.A = I . Note:
A is said to be orthogonal if A.A
T
= A
T
.A = I. (1)
we know that A.A
1
= A
1
.A = I . (2)
From (1) and (2) if A is orthogonal A
T
= A
1
.
PROPERTIES OF ORTHOGONAL MATRIX:
1. If A is an orthogonal matrix then A
T
and A
1
are also an orthogonal matrix.
2. If A and B are orthogonal, then AB is also orthogonal.
3. A square matrix A is orthogonal if and only if A
1
= A
T
.
DIAGONALISATION OF A MATRIX BY ORTHOGONAL TRANSFOR-
MATION (OR) ORTHOGONAL REDUCTION:
If A is a real symmetric matrix, then the eigen vectors of A are not only Linearly
independent but also pairwise orthogonal.
The Normalized eigenvectors of A is formed by divide each element of the vector X,
by the square-root of the sum of the squares of all the elements of X.
Let N be the Normalized modal matrix whose columns are the normalized eigen vec-
tors of A. Then N ia as orthogonal matrix and by the property N
T
= N
1
.
If A be a real symmetric matrix, then there exists an orthogonal matrix such that
N
T
AN = N
1
AN = D is known as Orthogonal Reduction (or) Orthogonal Transforma-
tion.
Note: Orthogonal transformation is possible only for a real symmetric matrix.

NATURE OF THE QUADRATIC FORM:
Index of the Quadratic Form:
The number of positive terms in the canonical form is called the index and it is denoted
by s.
16
Signature of the Quadratic Form:
The dierence of number of positive and negative square terms is called the signature
of the Quadratic Form.
The Quadratic Form Q = X
T
AX in n variables is said to be
Positive denite, if all the eigenvalues are positive numbers.
Negative denite, if all the eigenvalues are negative numbers.
Positive semi denite, if all the eigenvalues os A 0 and atleast one eigenvalue
is zero.
Negative semi denite, if all the eigenvalues os A 0 and atleast one eigenvalue
is zero.
Indenite in all other cases.
