LINEAR EQUATIONS AND LINEAR INEQUALITIES Ex. 10. Find an invertible matrix Q A E JR4x4 n such that QAQT is diagonal, where U-i !

Let A be a symmetric matrix and Q an invertible matrix such that D = QAQT is diagonal. d. if and only if all diagonal elements ofD are non-negative. (b) A is positive definite if and only if all diagonal elements ofD are strictly positive.

Since pivot operations are, in particular, sequences of elementary vector space operations on the row vectors, the space row A will stay the sam~ after each Gaussian pivot. te upper triangular form of the final matrix A it follows immediately that rank A = r, where r is the total number of Gaussian pivots. Hence r = rank A = rank A . So Gaussian Elimination provides a fast algorithm for computing a basis of the space row A. We emphasize that the column space col A = row AT does change when we apply (row) pivots to A.
