I�������� Notes M�����/V����� Entries and Components M����� Operations


Indices start at � • v[i] • A*B
When specifying rows, columns, or entries of a Entry in position i of vector v Product of matrices A and B, if de�ned
matrix, count by starting with �. • A+B
• A[i,j]
Entry in row i and column j of A Sum of matrices A and B, if de�ned
Row vs Column Vectors
Sage does not differentiate between row and col- • A.row(m) • A.echelon_form()
umn vectors. Vectors are interpreted as needed mth row of A as vector Echelon form of matrix A
so operations are de�ned, if possible. • A.column(m) • A.rref()
mth column of A as vector Reduced echelon form of matrix A
Specify the ring • A.inverse()
Sage needs to know which space our matrices • A.rows()
List of rows of A as list Inverse of matrix A (if de�ned)
and vectors are de�ned in, even when de�ning a
particular matrix. The Sage keys for common sets • A.determinant()
• A.columns()
are Returns determinant of matrix A
List of columns of A as list
RR = reals, QQ = rationals, ZZ = integers • A.transpose()
Specifying the ring is optional but highly recom- • A.submatrix(m,n,nrows,ncols)
