# Tagged Questions

Inverses include: multiplicative inverse of a number (reciprocal), inverse function, matrix inverse, etc. A subject tag such as (linear-algebra), (algebra-precalculus) or (arithmetic) should be added to clarify in which sense "inverse" is used. This tag should never be the only tag on a question.

### Square Root of a matrix: transpose or inverse of eigen vectors?

Here is described that the square root of a matrix is defined as K^1/2 = V*D^1/2*V^-1 At the end of scetion 4 of this paper we can see W = K^-1/2es In the ...

### How to obtain the inverse of $MSM^T$ when $(MM^T)^{-1}$ is already known and $S$ is an invertible symmetric matrix?

How to obtain the inverse of $MSM^T$ when $(MM^T)^{-1}$ is already known and $S$ is an invertible symmetric matrix? Assume that $M$ is an $n \times m$ matrix with $n \leq m$. Is it possible to obtain ...

### Is there a simple algorithm to compute polynomial inverses over cyclotomic polynomials?

I'm working with polynomial inversions in a ring built over the nth-cyclotomic polynomial, with $n = 2^i$. As usual, I'm applying Extended Euclidean algorithm on this, an approach that does not scales ...

### Is this how eigenvalues of some matrix $A$ are related to the inverse of $A$?

Let $A$ be an invertible $n\times n$ matrix. If $$Av = \lambda v \qquad (1)$$ for some $v$ and $\lambda$ then $\lambda$ is an eigenvalue of $A$ and $v$ a corresponding eigenvector. Equation $(1)$ may ...

### Inverse operation of tetration and how it is computed?

If $c=a+b$, then $a=c-b$ and $b=c-a$. If $c=a\times b$, then $a=\frac{c}{b}$ and $b=\frac{c}{a}$. If $c=a^b$, then $a = \sqrt [b]{c} =c^{\frac{1}{b}}$ and $b=log_ac$. What are the analogous inverse ...

### Is $\text{arccosec}(x) = \arcsin\left(\frac{1}{x}\right)$ for all $x \in ℝ?$

Is $\text{arccosec}(x) = \arcsin\left(\frac{1}{x}\right)$ for all $x \in ℝ?$ I'm still really new to trigonometric inverses, so if the above was cleared up I'd be grateful. Thanks.

### Complex inverse function

I've got a problem when solving an inverse function. Usually when I have a basic function and trying to find its inverse is not a problem. I just solve for X and find it. But now I've got a more ...

### Prove a matrix expression leads to an invertible matrix?

I want to prove matrix $C$ is invertible: $$C=I-A^TB(B^TB)^{-1}B^TA(A^TA)^{-1},$$ where $I$ is an identity matrix of appropriate dimensions, and $(A^TA)^{-1}$ and $(B^TB)^{-1}$ imply both $A$ and $B$ ...

### How to show the matrix $\left( \binom{x-i}{j-1}\right)_{1\leq i,j\leq 2r+1}$ has determinant (-1)^r and it's inverse?

After playing around in mathematica, I found that the matrix $\left( \binom{x-i}{j-1}\right)_{1\leq i,j\leq 2r+1}$ has determinant $(-1)^r$ for the first few $r$'s. How can I prove this this, or at ...

### Uniqueness of Inverse

I am having trouble understanding the logic for a few steps in the following. I'll point the steps out at the end. If B and C are inverses of a square matrix A, then B = C. Proof: Since B is an ...

### Finding the expression of the inverse of $(AB)^T$

I know that $(AB)^T$ = $B^TA^T$ and that $(A^T)^{-1}= (A^{-1})^T$ but couldn't reach any convincing answer. Can someone demonstrate the expression.

### $y=x/(1+a(x))$, $\quad$ $x=y/(1+b(y))$. What is known about $a\mapsto b$?

\begin{align} y & = f(x) = \frac x {\displaystyle 1 + \sum_{n=1}^\infty a_n \frac{x^n}{n!}} \\[15pt] x & = f^{-1}(y) = \frac y {\displaystyle 1 + \sum_{n=1}^\infty b_n \frac{y^n}{n!}} \end{...

### Inverse of $f(x) = 2x^2+8x+13?$

How can you find the inverse of $f(x) = 2x^2+8x+13?$ This is what I've tried so far: $y = 2x^2+8x+13$ $x = 2y^2+8y+13$ $x-13 = 2y^2+8y$ $x-13=y(y+8)$ This is where I got stuck. To be clear, I want ...

### Time complexity of inverting an $n \times n$ matrix which is the sum of a rank-$m$ matrix and a full-rank diagonal matrix

I want to know the time complexity of inverting $K$, where $K$ is an positive-definite $n\times n$ matrix: $$K=\Lambda+Q$$, where $\Lambda$ and $Q$ are both $n\times n$ matrix, $\Lambda$ is a full-...
