# 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.

### Matrix invertibility proof? [closed]

Can it be proven that $A^\top A$ is invertible given just the fact that: if $A^\top Ay = \theta$ then $Ay = \theta$? Here $y$ is a vector and $\theta$ is the vector zero.

### Using Cayley hamilton therom to find the value of matrix

This is the problem where I don't understand how the equations get cancelled and the answers comes out to be $A^2+A+I$. When I am doing the same thing there $7A^4$ which is't cancelled.

### Operations for LU decomposition

Given $X\in\mathbb{R}^{n\mathrm{x}n}$ is invertible, $p,q\in\mathbb{R}^{n}$, $x\in\mathbb{R}$, and assuming the $LU$ decomposition without pivoting of $X$ is known, I have to show the LU ...

### Finding the multiplicative inverses in fields

Let's say I have the field $F_{11}$. Why does $2$ have the multiplicative inverse $6$? In some of the examples I have, let's say we are looking $F_5$, why are values up to only $2$ considered? So ...

### Finding a matrix inverse when an equation involving it is a multiple of the identity matrix

Say you had a matrix $A$, and you did an equation like $A^2 - A$, and proved that it was a multiple of $I$. How could you find $A^{-1}$ in the form $rA + sI$ after proving that? I want to do it ...

### Matrix Inverse as Series

I am looking for different representations of the inverse of a matrix as a power series. One obvious candidate is the Von Neumann series which is given $$A^{-1} = \sum_{k=0}^{\infty} (I-A)^k$$ ...

### Solve equation of inverse functions

I have two different functions $y_1=f_1(x)$ and $y_2=f_2(x)$, both invertible but quite complex. I am able to find their inverse functions numerically, i.e. $f^{-1}_1(x)$ and $f^{-1}_2(x)$, by ...

### In which cases are $(f\circ g)(x) = (g\circ f)(x)$?

I have found three cases: 1) If $f$ and $g$ are the same function. 2) If $f$ and $g$ are mutually inverse. 3) If both are polynomials of degree $1$ Maybe there are more.

### Comparing matrix norm with the norm of the inverse matrix

I need help understanding and solving this problem. Prove or give a counterexample: If $A$ is a nonsingular matrix, then $\|A^{-1}\| = \|A\|^{-1}$ Is this just asking me to get the magnitude of ...
