**The inverse of a matrix
**

Introduction

In this leaﬂet we explain what is meant by an inverse matrix and how it is calculated.

**1. The inverse of a matrix
**

The inverse of a square n × n matrix A, is another n × n matrix denoted by A−1 such that AA−1 = A−1 A = I where I is the n × n identity matrix. That is, multiplying a matrix by its inverse produces an identity matrix. Not all square matrices have an inverse matrix. If the determinant of the matrix is zero, then it will not have an inverse, and the matrix is said to be singular. Only non-singular matrices have inverses.

**2. A formula for ﬁnding the inverse
**

Given any non-singular matrix A, its inverse can be found from the formula A− 1 = adj A |A|

where adj A is the adjoint matrix and |A| is the determinant of A. The procedure for ﬁnding the adjoint matrix is given below.

**3. Finding the adjoint matrix
**

The adjoint of a matrix A is found in stages: (1) Find the transpose of A, which is denoted by AT . The transpose is found by interchanging the rows and columns of A. So, for example, the ﬁrst column of A is the ﬁrst row of the transposed matrix; the second column of A is the second row of the transposed matrix, and so on. (2) The minor of any element is found by covering up the elements in its row and column and ﬁnding the determinant of the remaining matrix. By replacing each element of AT by its minor, we can write down a matrix of minors of AT . (3) The cofactor of any element is found by according to the following rule + − + − + − ... 5.5.1 ... taking its minor and imposing a place sign ... ... ... . . . . .. + − +

On the other hand to ﬁnd the cofactor of an element in the second row. In this way we can form a matrix of cofactors of AT . The matrix of cofactors of the transpose of A. We continue in this fashion and form a new matrix by replacing every element of AT by its minor. Show that the inverse of 0 5 1 is −1 3 0 5. This results in the matrix of cofactors.This means.

Finally A− 1 −7 6 −10 1 adj A = = −14 3 −5 |A| 21 7 0 7 Exercise 1 3 2 1. adj A This procedure may seem rather cumbersome.2 −3 6 −7 1 −1 2 −1 . denoted adj A. the sign of the minor is unaltered. for example. of A = 3 . ﬁrst 1 2 column. which is −7. that is. −1 2 3 Solution Follow the stages outlined above. The minor of the element ‘3’ in the second column −2 2 which of the ﬁrst row is found by covering up elements in its row and column to give 0 3 has determinant −6. each element in the matrix of minors has been multiplied by 1 or −1 according to its position. is called the adjoint matrix. second column. 2000 . second column. The minor of the element ‘1’ in the ﬁrst row.5. This is equivalent to multiplying the minor by ‘+1’ or ‘−1’ depending upon its position. is obtained by covering up the elements in its row and column to give and 5 3 ﬁnding the determinant of this. Example 1 −2 0 1 5 Find the adjoint. This matrix is called the adjoint of A. −7 6 −10 adj A = −14 3 −5 7 0 7 Notice that to complete this last stage. and so on: 1 3 −1 T A = −2 1 2 0 5 3 Now ﬁnd the minor of each element in AT . the adjoint of A. First ﬁnd the transpose of A by taking the ﬁrst column of A to be the ﬁrst row of AT . the sign of the minor is changed. and hence the inverse. so it is illustrated now by means of an example. It is a straightforward matter to show that the determinant of A is 21.
