93) where the eigenvalues are given by λ. 94): (4-λ)(8-λ)-(2χ1) =0 or λ 2 - 1 2 λ + 30 = 0 . 551 . 94) 56 Matrix algebra [Ch. 1 λ, is known as the dominant eigenvalue, as it is the largest in magnitude, and λ^ is known as the sub-dominant eigenvalue, as it is the second largest in magnitude. To determine the eigenvectors, substitute λ! 90): Γ(4-λ,) L 1 2 - (8"λ 2 ). 92) is said to be positive-definite, as both its roots are positive. From the above it can be seen that the calculation of eigenvalues by the expansion of a determinant is limited only to small matrices, as an nth-order matrix would involve a polynomial of the nth degree.

This method of solving simultaneous equations is very powerful and is in many respects similar to Chio's method for evaluating determinants. 2. The program breaks down if a zero is met on the leading diagonal, but this can be overcome by interchanging two columns or rows, and interchanging the correspond­ ing unknowns prior to outputting their values. 4 Gauss-Seidel method Consider the set of simultaneous equations (171). Solving for*, from the first of these equations gives 1 X\ = 7 - (C, -Ai2x2-Ai3x3 Λ ~Ainxn) .

In most practical problems the condition that {x} is null is not of interest, hence the following should be satisfied. 91) is known as the characteristic equation.
