Answer to the question: What did I just do, when I found rref(A)?
Equation ideas can be used on a matrix A. View matrix A as the set of coefficients of a homogeneous linear system Ax=0. The augmented matrix B for this homogeneous system would be the given matrix with a column of zeros appended: B=aug(A,0).
L2.1 discussed today. Transparencies projected for L2.1 and L2.4 solutions. Happens only in class, no web solutions available.
Due next Week: 3.4-18,30,36,40. See FAQ 3.4 for details.
Problems 3.4-17 to 3.4-22 are homogeneous systems Ax=0 with A in reduced echelon form. Apply the last frame agorithm then write the general solution in vector form.
Problem 3.4-29 is used in Problem 3.4-30. The result is the Cayley-Hamilton Theorem, a famous theorem of linear algebra which is the basis for solving systems of differential equations.
Problem 3.4-40 is the superposition principle for the matrix equation Ax=b. It is the analog of the differential equation relation y=y_h + y_p.
