1) = I. Hence in this case D is nonsingular and D - 1 = E. 2). The whole proposition is now proved. 4 Let A = [: :J be an arbitrary matrix in F 2 x 2. Then A is nonsingular if and only if ad-be"# 0; and if ad-be"# 0, A- 1 1 [d -bJ ---- - ad-be -e a· 43 MATRICES Proof Let k = ad - be, and let B = [ _ ~ - ~J By direct calculation, we find that AB = BA = kI. In the case k # 0, it follows that AC = CA = I, where C = (ljk)B, and hence that A is nonsingular with inverse (ljk)B. Consider the remaining case where k = and, therefore, AB = o.

Introduction The title of the chapter refers to operations of three standard types which, for various constructive purposes, we may carry out on the rows of a matrix.
