1.1 Definition

MATRICES

A matrix is a set of real or complex numbers (or elements) arranged in rows and columns to form a rectangular array. If there are m rows and n column, it is called an mxn (read as m-by-n) matrix and is said to be of order mxn. If m = n, its called a square matrix of order n. A matrix is indicated by writing the array within large square brackets E.g.

1 2 3 is a 2x3 matrix, where 1,2,3,4,5,6 are the elements of the matrix 4 5 6

Note: The number of rows is stated first and the number of column second.

1 2 3 4 5 6 is a matrix of order 4x3, i.e. 4 rows and 3 columns. 7 8 9 10 11 12


4 5 So the matrix 6 7 is order 3x2 8 9
And the matrix Special cases: A matrix with only 1 column is called a column vector, similarly a matrix with only one row is called a row vector E,g. (i)

1 4 7 5 is of order 2x4 3 0 6 2

[a

b c d] is a row vector (1x4) matrix

(ii)

d e is a column vector (4x1) matrix. f g

The general matrix of order mxn can be written as a11 a12 ... ... a1n a21 a22 ... ... a2n E.g. A = aij = : : : : am1 am2 ... ... amn

[ ]

CJHL/2010

MATRICES
The element of the matrix in the Ith row and the jth column is denoted by aij with the subscripts in this order. i.e. a23 indicates the element in the second row and third column and a31 indicates the element in the third row and first column.

e.g.

6 3 2 If A = 1 0 4 3 1 7
a12 = -3, a22 = 0 a32 = -1, a13 = 2 a23 = 4 a33 = 7

then a11 = 6, a21 = 1, a31 = 3,

if n is a square matrix, the elements aij with I = j are called diagonal elements ( or elements on the diagonal).

1.2

Equality

Two matrices are said to be equal if and only if they are of the same order and corresponding elements are equal. If

a11 a12 a 21 a 22

a13 4 5 6 = a 23 9 8 7

then a11=4, a12 = 5, a13 = 6; etc

are not equal. ii) If

Basic Matrix Operations

Addition and Substraction of Matrices

To be added or subtracted, two matrices must be of the same order. The sum or difference is then determined by adding or subtracting corresponding element.

Multiplication of Martix by a Number (Scalar Multiplier)

: Let k be a constant or scalar. By the product kA we mean the matrix in which every element of A is multiplied by k. Thus

Matrix Multiplication

Two important points must be remembered 1. Matrices are in general not commutative in multiplication;( AB BA). However if two matrices are such that AB = BA, then they are said to be commutative 2. Two matrices A and B can only be multiplied if they are conformable. I.e when the number of column in the first is equal to the number of rows in the second. For instance
CJHL/2010

MATRICES

A x B = C only if p = l and the resulting order is m x n


mxp lxn mxn

In case of continued product A X B X C = D


mxp lxq rxm mxn

only if p = l and q = r and the resulting order is m xn

If X =

2 3 and Y = 1 3 2 6

5 4 3 1 10 5 Z= 7 6 3 2 1 4

Then,

XY is not conformable YX is conformable and of order 3 x 2 YZ is ---------------------------------ZY is --------------------------------

Procedure for multiplication

If A = (aij) is an m x n matrix and B = (bij) is an n x r matrix then the product AB = C = (cij) is the m x r matrix whose entries are defined by
Cij =

a
k =1

ik

bkj = ai1 b1j + ai2 b2j + ai3 b3j + . + ain bnj

To find the ijth element of product, take the Ith row of A and jtj column of B, multiply the corresponding elements pairwise and add the resulting numbers.

b11 b a11 a12 a13 21 , then and B = [b ] = E.g. If A = [aij] = ij b31 a a a 22 23 21 b11 a11b11 + a12b 21 + a13b31 a11 a12 a13 b21 . = A.B = a21 a22 a23 b31 a 21b11 + a 22b 21 + a 23b31
The product AB is now a 2x1 matrix

Continued Product of Matrices

A continued product of matrices such as ABC is to be interpreted as follows: First premultiply C by B and then premultiply product BC by A. this process will not be possible unless b is conformable with C and A wiuth BC For matrix multiplication: ABC = (AB) C = A (BC) - Associative (A + B) C = AF + BC - Distributive C(A + B) = CA + CB

Theorem : If the zero matrix below are of suitable order, then i) A+O=O+A=A ii) AxO=OxA=O iii) A = B if and only if A B = O

Definition : A Square matrix of order n which has all its diagonal elements equal to 1 and all its other elements equal to zero is called a unit matrix of order n, denoted by I is a matrix of order mxn where m = n

From definition,

1 0 0 Example: 0 1 0 is a unit vector of order 3 0 0 1


Theorem:

Suppose that I is the unit matrix of order n. If A is of order n x m, then I A = A (order n x m) If A is of order m x n, then A I = A (order m x n) If A is square matrix of order n, then A I = I A = A

i) ii) iii)

Example 8:

If

2 4 5 A = 7 1 5 and I3 = 0 8 3

1 0 0 0 1 0 then A.I = 0 0 1

2 4 5 7 1 5 i.e A.I = A. 0 8 3

Similarly, the product I .A is

Therefore, the unit matrix I, behaves very much like the unit factor in ordinary algebra and arithmatics.

Solution of a System of Linear Equations.

Consider the following system of linear equations

The above system can be written in a matrix notation


A X = B ..(*)

where A is the coefficient matrix. X and B are column matrices i.e

a 11 a 21 A = a 31 .... a m1
Example 20 The system

We will refer to this new matrix as the augmented matrix denoted by [A : B ]

Definition: The system of equation is called non-homogenous if B is not a zero matrix. I.e at least one bi is not zero for I = 1, 2, 3, . n Definition: The system of equation is called homogenous if B is a zero matrix. I.e bi = 0 for I = 1, 2, 3 , n Gauss Elimination Method.

Gauss Elimination Method is a systematic procedure for solving system of linear equations. To apply the elementary row operations to the above system of linear equations, we write the equation A X = B in the form of the augmented matrix [A : B ] and reducing the augmented matrix of a system to another augmented matrix that is row echelon form. Then the system is solved by back substitution.

Example 21

Solve the following system by Gaussian elimination method a) x + 3y + 2z = 9 2x + 4y -3z = 1 3x + 6y 5z = 0 x + y + 2z = 8 -x 2y + 3z = 1 3x - 7y + 4z = 10 b) x + y + 2z = 3 2x y + z = 6 -x + 3y = -5 x 2y 2z = -1 x + y +z =2 x + 2y + 2z = 1

d)

The Gauss-Jordan elimination method uses row operation on the augmented matrix to solve a system of linear equations. The procedure can be described as follow: 1. Write the augmented matrix [A : B] for the system, where A is the square matrix whose the elements are the coefficients of the unknowns in the system and B is the column matrix whose elements are the constants. Use row operation to change [A : B] to [I : C] where I is an identity matrix of the same size as A and where C is a column matrix Read the solutions from the column matrix C

Definition: The number of non-zero rows of a matrix A in row echelon form (reduced row echelon form) is called the rank of A and is denoted by rank A or r(A). Example 23

The rank of the matrix plays an important role to determine whether a system of linear equations is inconsistent; consistent for unique solution or consistent for infinitely many solutions.
Theorem: The system of linear equations A X = B is consistent if and only if the rank of matrix A is equal to the rank of the augmented matrix [A : B] Theorem: If the augmented matrix [A : B] in row echelon form or reduced row echelon possesses a zero row the system of linear equations is linearly dependent otherwise it is linearly independent. A) Solution of non-homogeneous equations

To solve the system of linear equations AX = B We first find the rank of A and [A : B]. three possibilities will arise. i) r[A] r[A : B], the system of equations is inconsistent and has no solutions ii) r[A] = r[A : B] = n = number of unknowns, the system of equations is consistent and has a unique solution. iii) r[A] = r [A : B] = r < n, the system of equations is consistent and has infinitely many solutions.

If this is not possible, them A-1 does not exist. If [A : In] is transformed into [In : B] by row operation, the inverse can be read from the last n column of [In : B]. Then A-1 = B
