    Negative of matrix associated with bilinear map for odd dimension

    Hiya, Hate to ask a question without essentially any work on it, but I have no idea how to prove this. The question is : Let $F$ be the matrix of a nonsingular bilinear form $f$ on a real space of dimension n. Prove that for odd $n$ the matrix $−F$ is not the matrix of $f$ in any basis of $V$...

    Implications of unitary matrix with sub-blocks of matrices

    If we consider some unitary operator in matrix form given by $ U = \left[ {\begin{array}{cc} P_{00} & P_{01} \cdot \cdot & P_{0J} \\ P_{10} & \\ \cdot &\\ \cdot\\ P_{J0} \cdot\cdot\cdot& & P_{JJ} \\ \end{array} } \right]$ Where each $P_{nm}$ are matrices (sub-blocks of...

    Matrix equation - solve for X

    Hi everybody! I need some help with this matrix equation: $$\pmatrix{6 & 1 \cr -3 & -8} -X \pmatrix{1 & 6 \cr -1 & 5}=I$$ So this is how I would solve it: $$A-X\cdot B=I \Leftrightarrow -X=I\cdot B^{-1}-A$$ Is this correct? Also, is -X different from X when it comes to matrices? Should I...

    brackets exceed matrix vertically,

    I make matrices with embedded matrices. Some rows are therefore taller than others. When the lower rows are taller than the upper rows (because the lower rows have taller matrices embedded in them than the upper rows do), the brackets go too far up. Similarly, if the upper rows are taller than...

    Matrices (dominant and steady state)

    I have been working with dominant matrices as shown below for a game of dice. The diagonal row of zeros indicate that of course the player can not verse themselves, so it is donated as zero e.g T vs T has a 0. The 1's are wins and zero a loss accept for T vs T, J vs J ect (am i correct in...

    proof question regarding matrices

    I have a new question here. 3. Find all values of a for which the inverse of the 3 x 3 matrix exists. What is A inverse? A = (1 1 0 1 0 0 1 2 a) Here is my work So far I know that if det A is nonzero, then A inverse exists. So I used A = (1 1 0|1 1 1 0 0|1 0 1 2...
