The operator .
represents noncommutative multiplication and scalar
product. When the operands are 1-column or 1-row matrices a
and
b
, the expression a.b
is equivalent to
sum (a[i]*b[i], i, 1, length(a))
. If a
and b
are not
complex, this is the scalar product, also called the inner product or dot
product, of a
and b
. The scalar product is defined as
conjugate(a).b
when a
and b
are complex;
innerproduct
in the eigen
package provides the complex scalar
product.
When the operands are more general matrices,
the product is the matrix product a
and b
.
The number of rows of b
must equal the number of columns of a
,
and the result has number of rows equal to the number of rows of a
and number of columns equal to the number of columns of b
.
To distinguish .
as an arithmetic operator from the decimal point in a
floating point number, it may be necessary to leave spaces on either side.
For example, 5.e3
is 5000.0
but 5 . e3
is 5
times e3
.
There are several flags which govern the simplification of expressions
involving .
, namely dot0nscsimp
, dot0simp
,
dot1simp
, dotassoc
, dotconstrules
,
dotdistrib
, dotexptsimp
, dotident
, and
dotscrules
.

vect
is a package of functions for vector analysis. load ("vect")
loads this package, and demo ("vect")
displays a demonstration.
The vector analysis package can combine and simplify symbolic expressions including dot products and cross products, together with the gradient, divergence, curl, and Laplacian operators. The distribution of these operators over sums or products is governed by several flags, as are various other expansions, including expansion into components in any specific orthogonal coordinate systems. There are also functions for deriving the scalar or vector potential of a field.
The vect
package contains these functions:
vectorsimp
, scalefactors
, express
,
potential
, and vectorpotential
.
By default the vect
package does not declare the dot operator to be a
commutative operator. To get a commutative dot operator .
, the command
declare(".", commutative)
must be executed.

is
optional. For this case the elements of the Cauchy matrix are

Returns a copy of the matrix M. This is the only way to make a copy aside from copying M element by element.
Note that an assignment of one matrix to another, as in m2: m1
, does not
copy m1
. An assignment m2 [i,j]: x
or setelmx(x, i, j, m2)
also modifies m1 [i,j]
. Creating a copy with copymatrix
and then
using assignment creates a separate, modified copy.

Returns the echelon form of the matrix M, as produced by Gaussian elimination. The echelon form is computed from M by elementary row operations such that the first non-zero element in each row in the resulting matrix is one and the column elements under the first one in each row are all zero.
triangularize
also carries out Gaussian elimination, but it does not
normalize the leading non-zero element in each row.
lu_factor

Returns a list of two lists containing the eigenvalues of the matrix M. The first sublist of the return value is the list of eigenvalues of the matrix, and the second sublist is the list of the multiplicities of the eigenvalues in the corresponding order.
eivals
is a synonym for eigenvalues
.
eigenvalues
calls the function solve
to find the roots of the
characteristic polynomial of the matrix. Sometimes solve
may not be able
to find the roots of the polynomial; in that case some other functions in this
package (except innerproduct
, unitvector
,
columnvector
and gramschmidt
) will not work.
Sometimes solve
may find only a subset of the roots of the polynomial.
This may happen when the factoring of the polynomial contains polynomials
of degree 5 or more. In such cases a warning message is displayed and the
only the roots found and their corresponding multiplicities are returned.
In some cases the eigenvalues found by solve
may be complicated
expressions. (This may happen when solve
returns a not-so-obviously real
expression for an eigenvalue which is known to be real.) It may be possible to
simplify the eigenvalues using some other functions.

The flags that affect this function are:
nondiagonalizable
is set to true
or false
depending on
whether the matrix is nondiagonalizable or diagonalizable after
eigenvectors
returns.
hermitianmatrix
when true
, causes the degenerate
eigenvectors of the Hermitian matrix to be orthogonalized using the
Gram-Schmidt algorithm.
knowneigvals
when true
causes the eigen
package to assume
the eigenvalues of the matrix are known to the user and stored under the global
name listeigvals
. listeigvals
should be set to a list similar
to the output eigenvalues
.
The function algsys
is used here to solve for the eigenvectors.
Sometimes if the eigenvalues are messy, algsys
may not be able to find a
solution. In some cases, it may be possible to simplify the eigenvalues by
first finding them using eigenvalues
command and then using other
functions to reduce them to something simpler. Following simplification,

Returns a matrix generated from a, taking element
a[i_1, j_1]
as the upper-left element and
a[i_2, j_2]
as the lower-right element of the matrix.
Here a is a declared array (created by array

either a matrix or a list of lists. x is not modified by
gramschmidt

is
F, if present, otherwise the inner product is the function

If x is a matrix, the algorithm is applied to the rows of x. If x is a list of lists, the algorithm is applied to the sublists, which must have equal numbers of elements. In either case, the return value is a list of lists, the sublists of which are orthogonal and span the same space as x. If the dimension of the span of x is less than the number of rows or sublists, some sublists of the return value are zero.

In particular, float and bigfloat elements are not converted to rationals.
When detout

matrix_element_transpose
is the operation
applied to each element of a matrix when it is transposed.
matrix_element_mult
can be assigned any unary operator.
The assigned value may be the name of an operator enclosed in quote marks,
the name of a function, or a lambda expression.
When matrix_element_transpose
equals transpose
,
the transpose
function is applied to every element.
When matrix_element_transpose
equals nonscalars
,
the transpose
function is applied to every nonscalar element.
If some element is an atom, the nonscalars
option applies
transpose
only if the atom is declared nonscalar,
while the transpose
option always applies transpose
.
The default value, false
, means no operation is applied.

Returns the i, j minor of the matrix M. That is, M with row i and column j removed.
Categories: Matrices
Returns the characteristic polynomial of the matrix M
with respect to x. This is an alternative to Maxima's charpoly
.
ncharpoly
works by computing traces of powers of the given matrix,
which are known to be equal to sums of powers of the roots of the
characteristic polynomial. From these quantities the symmetric
functions of the roots can be calculated, which are nothing more than
the coefficients of the characteristic polynomial. charpoly
works by
forming the determinant of x * ident [n] - a
. Thus
ncharpoly
wins, for example, in the case of large dense matrices filled
with integers, since it avoids polynomial arithmetic altogether.

When ratmx
is false
, determinant and matrix
addition, subtraction, and multiplication are performed in the
representation of the matrix elements and cause the result of
matrix inversion to be left in general representation.
When ratmx

the 4 operations mentioned above are performed in CRE form and the
result of matrix inverse is in CRE form. Note that this may
cause the elements to be expanded (depending on the setting of ratfac
)
which might not always be desired.

similaritytransform
computes a similarity transform of the matrix
M
. It returns a list which is the output of the uniteigenvectors
command. In addition if the flag nondiagonalizable
is false
two
global matrices leftmatrix
and rightmatrix
are computed. These
matrices have the property that leftmatrix . M . rightmatrix
is a
diagonal matrix with the eigenvalues of M on the diagonal. If
nondiagonalizable
is true
the left and right matrices are not
computed.
If the flag hermitianmatrix
is true
then leftmatrix
is the
complex conjugate of the transpose of rightmatrix
. Otherwise
leftmatrix
is the inverse of rightmatrix
.
rightmatrix
is the matrix the columns of which are the unit
eigenvectors of M. The other flags (see eigenvalues
and
eigenvectors
) have the same effects since
similaritytransform
calls the other functions in the package in order
to be able to form rightmatrix

Computes unit eigenvectors of the matrix M.
The return value is a list of lists, the first sublist of which is the
output of the eigenvalues
command, and the other sublists of which are
the unit eigenvectors of the matrix corresponding to those eigenvalues
respectively.
The flags mentioned in the description of the
eigenvectors
command have the same effects in this one as well.
When knowneigvects
is true
, the eigen
package assumes
that the eigenvectors of the matrix are known to the user and are
stored under the global name listeigvects
. listeigvects
should
be set to a list similar to the output of the eigenvectors
command.
If knowneigvects
is set to true
and the list of eigenvectors is
given the setting of the flag nondiagonalizable
may not be correct. If
that is the case please set it to the correct value. The author assumes that
the user knows what he is doing and will not try to diagonalize a matrix the
eigenvectors of which do not span the vector space of the appropriate dimension.
