Notes/Exercises Pivoting If we try to solve the following problem

the method runs into problems, eventhough the matrix-vector equation has a unique solution (the determinant of the matrix is 4). The reason for the problem is that as the method of Gaussian elimination moves through the columns, the row operations require division by the diagonal element (the ‘pivot’). In the case of this example, the first diagonal element is 0 and hence the method fails. Hence the implementation of the method of Gaussian elimination, the method is accompanied by a method called partial pivoting (or full pivoting). Partial pivotting involves inspecting the elements below the diagonal that is being worked on and finding the largest value and exchanging that row with the row coincident with the relevant diagonal element. In the example above, the initial application of partial pivoting would suggest swapping rows 1 and 2 to give. ( )( ) ( )

which returns the solution. (Note that full pivoting involves also exchanging columns to achieve the same (this also has the effect on the order of the -vector)). Singular matrix – no solution In order to investigate the response to a singular matrix. The matrix in the following system is singular. The spreadsheet is unable to solve this, the bottom row of the eliminated matrix is all zeros and the bottom row of the vector is non-zero; this is inconsistent and a message ‘no solution’ is posted.

Singular matrix – many solutions In order to investigate the response to a singular matrix. The matrix in the following system is singular. The spreadsheet is unable to solve this, the bottom row of the eliminated matrix is all zeros and the bottom row of the vector is zero; the bottom equation gives us no further information on top of the first two equations and the message ‘many solutions’ is posted.
