Some special matrices and types of matrices Throughout the section we shall be concerned with matrices over the arbitrary field F. (1) A very useful notation is the Kronecker delta symbol ()ik, which is defined to mean 1 if i = k and to mean 0 if i ¥- k. So, for example D33 is 1 and DS2 is O. s r= 1 (1 ::;; s ::;; n) (there being only one term in the sum that can possibly be nonzero). We now define the identity n x n matrix to be the n x n matrix whose (i, k)th entry is ()ik' This matrix is denoted by In (or simply by I if the intended size is clear from the context).

Xii = O. Thus every entry on the main diagonal of a real skew-symmetric matrix is zero. ) Worked example. Let A be an arbitrary m x n matrix. Show that In + A T A is symmetric. The student should pause to check that the product A T A exists and is an n x n matrix; In + A T A also exists, therefore. This having been noted, the solution proceeds as follows. (In+AT Af = I~ +(A TAf = In + A T(A Tf = In+ATA Thus In + A T A is symmetric. (cf. 3) (cf. 4 for the second) (cf. 1).
