Review: Multiplication of Matrices
To multiple two matrices together, the matrices must have compatible sizes: This multiplication is possible only if the number of columns in A is the same as the number of rows in B The resultant matrix C will have the same number of rows as A and the same number of rows as B Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Review: Multiplication of Matrices
Easy way to remember rules for multiplication: These values must match Size of Product Matrix Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Review: Multiplication of Matrices
Element ij of the product matrix is computed by multiplying each element of row i of the first matrix by the corresponding element of column j of the second matrix, and summing the results In general, matrix multiplication is not commutative: AB ≠ B A Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Practice Problem Find C = A B (2 X 4) X (4 X 3) = (2 X 3)

Review: Transpose The transpose of a matrix by switching its row and columns The transpose of a matrix is designated by a superscript T: The transpose can also be designated with a prime symbol (A’). This is the nomenclature used in MATLAB Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Review: Determinate The determinate of a square matrix is a scalar quantity that has some uses in matrix algebra. Finding the determinate of 2 × 2 and 3 × 3 matrices can be done relatively easily: The determinate is designated as |A| or det(A) 2 × 2: Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Review: Inverse Some square matrices have an inverse
If the inverse of a matrix exists (designated by -1 superscript), then where I is the identity matrix – a square matrix with 1’s as the diagonal elements and 0’s as the other elements The inverse of a square matrix exists only of the determinate is non-zero Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Matrix Operations in Excel
Excel has commands for: Multiplication (mmult) Transpose (transpose) Determinate (mdeterm) Inverse (minverse) Important to remember that these commands apply to an array of cells instead of to a single cell When entering the command, you must identify the entire array where the answer will be displayed Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
Repeat previous problem – first enter the two matrices: Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
Good practice to label the matrices: Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
Shading and borders help the matrices stand out: Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
Array of cells for the product must be selected – in this case, a 2 × 3 array: Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
The MMULT function has two arguments: the ranges of cells to be multiplied. Remember that the order of multiplication is important. Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication
Using the Enter key with an array command only returns an answer in a single cell. Instead, use Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys with array functions Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Multiplication

Excel Transpose Use Ctrl + Shift + Enter to input command

Excel Determinate Since determinate is a scalar, select a single cell and use Enter to input command Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Excel Matrix Inversion
Remember that only square matrices can have inverses Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Matrix Operations in MATLAB
Matrices are easily handled in MATLAB We will look at commands for: Multiplication Transpose Determinate Inverse Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Matrix Input Recall that to enter matrices in MATLAB, the elements are enclosed in square brackets Spaces or commas separate element within a row; semi-colons separate rows >> G = [2 5 8; ; 3 1 2] G = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Matrix Multiplication
>> G = [2 5 8; ; 3 1 2] G = >> H = [4 5; 6 12; 1 1] H = Matrix multiplication symbol is same as for scalar multiplication (*): >> L = G*H L = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Repeat Earlier Example
Find C = A B >> A = [ ; ]; >> B = [2 3 1;0 1 0; ; 2 2 1]; >> C = A*B C = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Transpose The transpose command switches rows and columns of a matrix: >> A = [10 6; 12 9; 1 3; 0 1] A = >> B = transpose(A) B = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Transpose Shortcut: The prime symbol (') after a matrix also performs the tranposition: >> A = [10 6; 12 9; 1 3; 0 1] A = >> B = A' B = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Determinate The det command finds the determinate of a square matrix: >> A = [2 5 6; ; 3 2 2] A = >> B = det(A) B = 53 Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Inversion The inv command finds the inverse of a square matrix:
>> B = inv(A) B = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Check: >> C = A*B C = 1.0000 0 -0.0000 0.0000 1.0000 -0.0000
Product of a matrix and its inverse is the identity matrix Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Matrix Inversion
Another example: A = >> B = inv(A) Warning: Matrix is singular to working precision. B = Inf Inf Inf Can you guess why this matrix has no inverse? What is the determinate of A? Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

MATLAB Matrix Inversion
Note that the third row of the matrix is simply the first row multiplied by a constant (2). When this happens, the matrix is singular and has no inverse. Also, notice that the determinate of the matrix is zero: >> det(A) ans = Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
Consider an equation with three unknowns x, y, and z If the equation contains only linear terms of x, y, and z – that is, only constants multiplied by each variable – and constants, then the equation is linear If the equation contains any terms such as x2, cos(x), ex, etc., then the equation is non-linear Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
Example of a linear equation: With what we know about multiplying matrices, we can write this equation as: (1 X 3) X (3 X 1) = (1 x 1) Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
Let’s add a second equation: We can add this to our previous matrix equation by adding a second row to the first matrix and to the product: (2 X 3) X (3 X 1) = (1 x 2) Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
Finally, let’s add a third equation: Our matrix equation is now: (3 X 3) X (3 X 1) = (1 x 3) Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
We will use matrix mathematics to solve the equations for x, y, and z The first step in solving a series of linear simultaneous equations is to write them in matrix form For n simultaneous equations and n unknowns: where A is the coefficient matrix (n × n); X is the matrix of unknowns (n × 1), and C is the constant matrix (n × 1) Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Linear Simultaneous Equations
Recall that if there are more unknowns then equations, then we cannot find a unique solution If there are more equations than unknowns, then some equations must be redundant If there are exactly the same number of equations and unknowns, then there may be a unique solution. In this case the coefficient matrix will be square Engineering Computation: An Introduction Using MATLAB and Excel

Practice Write these four equations in matrix form:
