# 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.

### complex and decimal tetration

So recently in the blog post on tetration, it talked about tetration with nice clean powers (calling them these because I don't know the right term). But how does it work when given a complex power? ...

### 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 ...

### is it true every left inverse of a matrix is also right inverse of it?

I am wondering that, consider there are $m$ linear equations with $n$ unknowns. We can represent it as $AX=B$. Let $L$ is the left inverse of $A$ therefore $LA=I$. Again from $AX=B$, we get $LAX=LB$ ...

### 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-...

### Inverse projection matrix 2D to 3D

I am writing a simple computer vision application in which reports the position of coloured dots on the floor. The floor is observed by a camera for which I have the correct projection matrix. I.E. If ...

### Inverse function of a polynomial

What is the inverse function of $f(x) = x^5 + 2x^3 + x - 1?$ I have no idea how to find the inverse of a polynomial, so I would greatly appreciate it if someone could show me the steps to solving this ...

### Use the complex definition of $\sin z$ to find an expression for $\sin^{-1} z$

Using $$\sin z = \frac{e^{iz}-e^{-iz}}{2i}$$ Prove $$\sin^{-1} z =\frac{1}{i}\ln(iz+\sqrt{1-z^2})$$ Attempted solution: Let $\sin z = u$ and $e^{iz} = v$. \begin{align*}& 2iu = v - \frac{1}{v}...

### How to find an inverse of the following function?

$$f(x)=x^3+1$$ To find inverse, from what I've learned we change the y to x $$x=y^3+1$$ solve for y $$x-1=y^3$$ Should I cube root the x-1 for this? if i did that I still would not get the answer ...

### Find the inverse function of $y=x|x|e^x$

I am having problems finding the inverse function of a complicated function. In this case: $$y=x|x|e^x$$ I thought I could 'split' this function but I'm not sure if that's the right way. for $y=x$ ...
