## Limitations(Preview)

Special Cases All the systems of equations shown so far have had the same number of equations as unknowns. This means the coefficient matrix A is square. Also, solving them

## Review – Solving Systems of Linear Equations(Preview)

A linear equation has only two types of terms: constants, and variables multiplied by constants.     To solve a system of linear equations in MATLAB, you first need to

## Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors of a Matrix(Preview)

What are Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors?  A matrix can be represented by its eigenvalues and eigenvectors. This representation is called the eigenvalue decomposition. Eigenvalues and eigenvectors come in sets. The key
