    Hello,

    Why would it be different than inverting a real matrix ?

    More info

    Well one way to get the inverse of a matrix is to obtain the identity matrix through row operations and then perform these exact operations on an identity matrix to obtain the inverse.
    I'm just having trouble eliminating the first element that I would typically eliminate during Gauss-Jordan elimnation of a real matrix.
    Here is the matrix A that I'm working on. Can you just get me started with the elimination of A_{21}...please.
