The row rank and the column rank of a matrix A are equal. Similarly is the normal form For example, is the normal form . First, we show that the algorithms can be applied to computing a rank-one decomposition, ﬁnding a basis of the null space, and performing matrix multiplication for a low rank matrix. Let A be an n x n matrix. Recall, we saw earlier that if A is an m n matrix, then rank(A) min(m;n). We have seen that there exist an invertible m × m matrix Q and an invertible n × n matrix P such that A1 = Q−1AP has the block form I 0 A1 = 0 0 where I is an r × r identity matrix for some r, and the rest of the matrix is zero. [See the proof on p. 275 of the book.] proof. Systems of Linear Equations We now examine the linear structure of the solution set to the linear system Ax = rank(A)=n,whereA is the matrix with columns v 1,...,v n. Fundamental Theorem of Invertible Matrices (extended) Theorem. Normal form of a Matrix We can find rank of a matrix by reducing it to normal form. Definition: Rank and Nullity Hence rank of matrix A = 3. So, rank of matrix B is 3. • has a unique solution for all . The following statements are equivalent: • A is invertible. Motivated by this, we convert the given matrix into row echelon form using elementary row operations: 2 6 6 4 0 16 8 4 2 4 8 16 16 8 4 2 4 8 16 2 3 7 7 5 ) 2 6 6 4 Theorem. The dimension of the row space of A is called rank of A, and denoted rankA. Thus the singular values of Aare ˙ 1 = 360 = 6 p 10, ˙ 2 = p 90 = 3 p 10, and ˙ 3 = 0. Dimensions of the row space and column space are equal for any matrix A. In fact, we can compute that the eigenvalues are p 1 = 360, 2 = 90, and 3 = 0. i.e. 1. The row space of an m×n matrix A is the subspace of Rn spanned by rows of A. Deﬁnition. Definition : An m n matrix of rank r is said to be in normal form if it is of type. We can also write it as . Chapter 2 Matrices and Linear Algebra 2.1 Basics Deﬁnition 2.1.1. If order of matrix A is 5 x 4 3. Theorem 2 If a matrix A is in row echelon form, then the nonzero rows of A are linearly independent. • has only the trivial solution . Reducing it into the The dimension of the row space is called the rank of the matrix A. Theorem 1 Elementary row operations do not change the row space of a matrix. If order of matrix A is 3 x 3 2. If order of matrix A is 2 x 3 Echelon Form Finding the rank of a matrix involves more computation work. Theorem 392 If A is an m n matrix, then the following statements are equivalent: 1. the system Ax = b is consistent for every m 1 matrix b. THEOREM 1.3. To compute the rank of a matrix, remember two key points: (i) the rank does not change under elementary row operations; (ii) the rank of a row-echelon matrix is easy to acquire. The column space of A spans Rm. A matrix is an m×n array of scalars from a given ﬁeld F. The individual values in the matrix are called entries. So, if m > n (more equations • The RREF of A is I. By above, the matrix in example 1 has rank 2. Hence, rank(A)+nullity(A) = 2 +2 = 4 = n, and the Rank-Nullity Theorem is veriﬁed. We know that at least one of the eigenvalues is 0, because this matrix can have rank at most 2. The matrix rank algorithms can be readily applied to various problems in exact linear algebra, combinatorial optimization, and dynamic data structure. 3. rank(A) = m. This has important consequences. Further, from the foregoing row-echelon form of the augmented matrix of the system Ax = 0, we see that rank(A) = 2. Note : Rank of a Matrix is less than or equal to the least of its row or its column. By theorem, we could deﬂne rank as the dimension of the column space of A. 304-501 LINEAR SYSTEMS L5- 1/9 Lecture 7: Rank and Nullity of Matrices 2.6.4 Rank and Nullity of Matrices Let AU V: → be an LT, with dim{U}= n, dim{V}= m. This implies that A has an mn× matrix representation. For this matrix, it is 2.
