When can we say a matrix is invertible?
Asked by Jogy Jacob | 5th Apr, 2013, 10:01: AM
1. An n x n matrix A is called invertible if there exists an n x n matrix B such that AB = BA = I. In this case, B is called the inverse of A. A can only have an inverse if it is an n x n (square) matrix and the its determinant is not equal to 0.
2. In the above case, A would be the invertible marix i.e. the matrix of which inverse can be calculated and B would be the corresponding inverse matrix, i.e the matrix which is inverse of the invertible matrix.
3. Inverse of a matrix A = 1/determinant(A) * adj (A)
