By Paulus Gerdes

The aim of the ebook is to offer the reader a sense for the wonder and the surprises of mathematical examine by way of build up step-by-step a concept of cycle matrices. The notions of matrix and cycle are awarded for these readers who don't but understand the options. Then, beginning and experimenting with cycle matrices of low dimensions and fascinating the readers in numerous actions, attractive effects are got with beautiful geometrical interpretation. steadily the implications are prolonged to cycle matrices of upper dimensions after which generalised. A observe is incorporated for these readers who wish to use a working laptop or computer in exploring cycle matrices. appendices supply the prospect to extra use the pc by way of exploring inverses matrices and determinants.

Example text

The matrix resulting from the addition does not have an alternating cyclic structure. Nevertheless it presents a particularity. It displays rotational symmetry: it is invariant under a rotation of 180° about the center of the matrix. 2 illustrates some pairs of positions corresponding under this rotation. The numbers in these corresponding positions are equal. 2. 1 2 9 3 3 9 2 1 6 4 0 5 5 0 4 6 1 2 9 3 3 9 2 1 6 4 0 5 5 0 4 6 1 2 9 3 3 9 2 1 6 4 0 5 32 Paulus Gerdes Are we dealing with a particular case or will rotational symmetry always occur?

Matrices of this type present both the structure of two alternating cycles as the structure of two constant diagonals and an alternating cycle where – what is very particular – in the last cycle the same number is repeated, that is, it alternates with itself. 33 Alternating Cycle Matrices of Dimensions 4 by 4. Third Part: ACTIVITY • Multiply some pairs of alternating cycle matrices, where one has structure the other structure some particularity? 3 -3 -2 7 -2 3 7 -3 -3 7 3 -2 7 -2 -3 3 2 3 6 -1 3 -1 2 6 6 2 -1 3 -1 6 3 2 and .

Chapter 9 MULTIPLICATION OF NEGATIVE ALTERNATING CYCLE MATRICES OF DIMENSIONS 6 BY 6 ABSTRACT In chapter 9 the properties of the multiplication of negative alternating cycle matrices of dimensions 6 by 6 will be analyzed. The concept of positive alternating cycle matrices of dimensions 6 by 6 will be introduced. 1. 1. 2. 2. 2. Do they have alternating cycles? What is the relationship between the two matrices AB and BA? What can be said about the matrix AB+BA ? The principal diagonals of the two matrices are equal and on both diagonals the number 47 is repeated.
