I originally started doing the inversion using LU decomposition to be able to invert N*N matrices but soon found that I could not enter values into the ITEM() array at run time (i.e. whilst trying to solve). Therefore I pursued a solution for a 3*3 matrix only, just to say that I had done it! The underlying equations using LU decomposition are shown below. ``` ```L11=A11 L21=A21 L31=A31 U12=A12 / L11 U13=A13 / L11 L22=A22 - L21.U12 U23=(A23 - L21.U13) / L22 L32=A32-L31.U12 L33=A33 - L31.U13 - L32.U23 Y1=1 / L11 Y2=-L21.Y1 / L22 Y3=(-L31.Y1 - L32.Y2) / L33 V31=Y3 V21=Y2 - U23.V31 V11=Y1 - V21.U12 - U13.V31 Y1=0 Y2=1 / L22 Y3=-L32.Y2 / L33 V32=Y3 V22=Y2 - U23.V32 V12=Y1 - U12.V22 - U13.V32 Y1=0 Y2=0 Y3=1 / L33 V33=Y3 V23=Y2 - U23.V33 V13=Y1 - U12.V23 - U13.V33 ``` ```I had to split the equations into Z for variable registration, SUM for the input array A and AINV for calculation otherwise the equation seemed to run out memory at run time and did not calculate the last few terms. Z=V11+V12+V13+V21+V22+V23+V31+V32+V33+ L11+L21+L22+L31+L32+L33+U12+U13+U23+ Y1+Y2+Y3 ``` ```AINV=0x(L(l11:ITEM(A:1)) +L(L21:ITEM(A:4)) +L(L31:ITEM(A:7)) +L(U12:ITEM(A:2)/G(11)) +L(U13:ITEM(A:3)+G(L11)) +L(L22:ITEM(A:5)-G(L21)xG(U12)) +L(U23:ITEM(A:6)- G(L21)xG(U13))/G(L22)) +L(L32:ITEM(A:8)-G(L31)xG(U12)) +L(L33:ITEM(A:9)-G(L31)xG(U13)-G(L32)xG(U23)) +L(Y1:1/G(L11)) +L(Y2:-G(L21)xG(Y1)/G(L22)) +L(V31:(-G(L31)xG(Y1)-G(L32)xG(Y2)/G(L33)) +L(V21:G(Y2)-G(U23)xG(V31)) +L(V11:G(Y1)-G(V21)xG(U12)-G(V31)xG(U13)) +L(Y2:1/G(L22)) +L(V32:-G(L32)xG(Y2)/G(L33)) +L(V22:G(Y2)-G(U23)xG(V32)) +L(V12:-G(U12)xG(V22)-G(U13)xG(V32)) +L(V33:1/G(L33)) +L(V23:-G(U23)xG(V33)) +L(V13:-G(U12)xG(V23)-G(U13)xG(V33))) ``` ``` Use the SUM menu to input the values for the 9 matrix elements where element k = (row-1)*3 + column. Click on NAME and save the data as A. Go to the solve menu, find the Z formula and click on CALC to register the variables. Find the AINV formula and click on CALC. Click on AINV, when it is finished the display should show AINV=0.000… Click on EXIT and go to the Z equation. Click on CALC and then RCL V11, RCL V12, RCL …. to show all the elements of the inverse matrix of A. A useful test matrix is the Hilbert matrix 1, ½, 1/3, ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/3, ¼, 1/5 with the resultant inverse matrix elements 9, -36, 30, -36, 192, -180, 30, -180, 180 ignoring the rounding errors. I have not studied the accuracy of the results as yet but thought I would post it for any comments and hopefully any improvements on technique. Also are there any tricks that I do not know about that I could have used? ``` Edited: 9 Aug 2005, 9:07 a.m.
