Matrix methods

## A7.1 Matrices f) Symmetric matrix, where aji = ajj

A matrix is a rectangular array of numbers. A matrix
g) Null matrix, [O], all elements are zero
with rn rows and n columns is said to be of order rn X n
and is written
4 2 . .. . . . a1, The addition of matrices of the same order is defined as
the addition of corresponding elements, thus
[AI + P I = P I + [AI

## where k equals the number of columns in [A], which

must also equal the number of rows in [B]. This is
illustrated by the following scheme which can be used
when evaluating a product.
c) Square matrix, one for which rn = n

non-zero elements occur only on the leading diagonal:

e.g. c13 = a 1 1 b 1 3 + a 1 2 b 2 3 + a 1 3 b 3 3

## A7.4 Transpose of a matrix

The transpose of a matrix [A], written [AIT, is a matrix
N.B. [Z][A] = [A][I] = [A] such that its ith row is the ith column of the original
matrix
A7.7 Change of co-ordinate system 261

e.g. k' =

- a22 where for example a l l , a12,and a13 are the components
of the unit vector i' and are therefore the direction
a13 a23 (A7.3) cosines between i ' and the x - , y - , z-axes respectively.
In matrix notation,
A7.5 Inverse of a matrix
The inverse of a matrix [A], written [AI-', is defined by a12

(A7.4) (A7.6)
The inverse can be defined only for a square matrix or @'I = [A]{e}
and even for these matrices there are cases where the
inverse does not exist. In this book we need not be If we assume {V'} = [Q]{V}, where [Q] is some
concerned with the various methods for inverting a transformation matrix, then
matrix. since V = {V'}T{e>' = {V>T{e}
A7.6 Matrix representationof a vector {V>TIQITIAI{e>= {V>T{e>
By the definition of matrix multiplication, the vector and because this is true for any arbitrary { V} it follows
that
V = v,i+vJ+v,k
[QITIAl = VI
may be written as either
or [elT= [A]-' (A7.6)
The magnitude of a vector is a scalar independent of
the co-ordinate system, so

## showing that the inverse of [Q] is its transpose. Such

transformations are called orthogonal.
- From equations
Thus, noting that [VI = {V}T, A7.6 and A7.7 we see that
(A7.5)
v = {V}T{e} = {e}T{V} [A]-' = [e]-' or [A] = [Q] (A7.8)

## A7.7 Change of co-ordinate system Summarising, we have

A vector may be represented in terms of a set of
{e'> = @]{e> {V'I = [AI{Vl
orthogonal unit vectors i', j ' , and k' which are

[;I
{e} = [AlT(e'} { V } = [AIT{V'}
orientated relative to a set i ,j , and k; thus
From equation A7.6
i ' . i ' = a l 1 2 + a 1 2 2 + a 1 1~ = (A7.9)
V=[vx vy VZI =WT{el
with similar expressions for j ' - j ' and k' .k.
Also, from equations A7.6 and A7.9,
i ' . j ' = alla21+a12a22+a13a23= 0 (A7.10)
= [vx' vy' v,'] with similar expressions for j ' . k ' and k ' . i '

## The unit vectors of one set of co-ordinates is

expressible in terms of the unit vectors of another set of
co-ordinates; thus
i' = alli+alj+a13k
j' =~ ~ , i + a ~ j + a ~ ~ k

In this section [J]will be used for moment of inertia, to a) Cylindrical to Cartesian co-ordinates:
avoid confusion with the identity matrix [I]. VX cos0 -sin0 0 V,
The kinetic energy of a rigid body rotating about a
fixed point (or relative to its centre of mass) is given by Vy = sin0 cos0 0 v,

This is a scalar quantity and therefore independent of
b) Spherical to cylindrical co-ordinates (see Figs 1.5

if { w ’ } = [A]{w} VR cos4 0 -sin4 V,
then { [J ’1 { w ‘ } = { W } ~ [ A[J] ~’][A { w ) Ve = 0 1 0 Ve
