The matrix I has the form 2 1 0 60 1 6 I¼6. 4 .. 0 0 3 ÁÁÁ 0 ÁÁÁ 07 7 7 .. 5 . ÁÁÁ 1 A null matrix (0) is a matrix in which all elements equal 0; thus A0 ¼ 0A ¼ 0. A matrix A is singular if Ax ¼ 0, x = 0 where x is a column vector [Lipschutz, 1968]. Notice that x = 0 if at least one element of x is nonzero. Alternatively, it is possible to show that a matrix A is singular if its determinant is zero. 3 after determinants have been defined.
