Principal Diagonal (or main diagonal or leading diagonal) The diagonal of a square matrix (from the top left to the bottom right) is called as principal diagonal. Trace of the Matrix The sum of the diagonal elements of a square matrix. - tr (λ A) = λ tr(A) , λ is scalar- tr ( A+B) = tr (A) + tr (B) - tr (AB) = tr (BA)

Rules 1. Matrices of same order can be added 2. Addition is commutative A+B = B+A 3. Addition is associative (A+B) +C = A+ (B+C) = B + (C+A) Multiplication of matrix by a Scalar Every element of the matrix gets multiplied by that scalar.

Multiplication of matrices Condition: Two matrices can be multiplied only when number of columns of the first matrix is equal to the number of rows of the second matrix. Multiplication of (m n) and (n m n p) matrices results in matrix of (m p)dimension 0 n p = m p1. To find Rank always remember to make matrix a triangular matrix (Upper triangular) or (lower triangular) [

[

Try to make I, zero then II and then III in any Matrix to find Rank of Matrix, for easy execution of question to find rank.

Properties of Determinants 1.

A determinant remains unaltered by changing its rows into columns and columns into rows. a a a a b c b b | b c | = | b | a c c c a b c

2.

If two parallel lines of a determinant are inter-changed, the determinant retains it numerical values but changes in sign. (In a general manner, a row or column is referred as line). a b c a c b c a b b c |= c b | =| c a b | | a | a a b c a c b c a b

3. 4.

Determinant vanishes if two parallel lines are identical. If each element of a line be multiplied by the same factor, the whole determinant is multiplied by that factor. [Note the difference with matrix]. a b c a b c a b c a b c | | =| | a b c a b c THE GATE ACADEMY PVT.LTD.

5.

If each element of a line consists of sum of the m determinants. a b c d e a b c d e | =| a | a a b c d e a

the m terms, then determinant can be expressed as b b b

c a c |+| a c a

b b b

d d | d

a | a a

b b b

e e | e

8.

If each element of a line be added equi-multiple of the corresponding elements of one or more parallel lines, determinant is unaffected. e.g. By the operation, + p +q , determinant is unaffected. Determinant of an upper triangular/ lower triangular/diagonal/scalar matrix is equal to the product of the leading diagonal elements of the matrix. If A & B are square matrix of the same order, then |AB|=|BA|=|A||B|.

9.

If A is non singular matrix, then |A |=| | (as a result of previous).

10. 11. 12. 13.

Determinant of a skew symmetric matrix (i.e. A =-A) of odd order is zero. If A is a unitary matrix or orthogonal matrix (i.e. A = A ) then |A|= ±1. If A is a square matrix of order n then |k A| = k |A|. | | = 1 ( is the identity matrix of order n).

7.

Multiplication of determinants  

The product of two determinants of same order is itself a determinant of that order. In determinants we multiply row to row (instead of row to column which is done for matrix).

Comparison of Determinants & Matrices 

Although looks similar, but actually determinant and matrix is totally different thing and its technically unfair to even compare them. However just for reader’s convenience, following comparative table has been prepared.

Determinant

Matrix

No of rows and columns are always equal

No of rows and column need not be same (square/rectangle)

Scalar multiplication: elements of one line (i.e. one row and column) is multiplied by the constant

Scalar multiplication: all elements of matrix is multiplied by the constant

Can be reduced to one number

Can’t be reduced to one number

Interchanging rows and column has no effect

Interchanging rows and columns changes the meaning all together

Multiplication of 2 determinants is done by multiplying rows of first matrix & rows of second matrix

Multiplication of the 2 matrices is done by multiplying rows of first matrix & column of second matrix
