Inverse of a matrix
 

The inverse of a square matrix A, sometimes called a reciprocal matrix, is a matrix A^(-1) such that

AA^{-1} = A^{-1}A = I

This calculator uses adjugate matrix to compute matrix inverse like

A^{-1} = \frac{1}{\det A}\cdot C^*

Adjugate matrix is the transpose of the cofactor matrix of A.

{C}^{*}= \begin{pmatrix}  {A}_{11} & {A}_{21} & \cdots & {A}_{n1} \\ {A}_{12} & {A}_{22} & \cdots & {A}_{n2} \\ \vdots & \vdots & \ddots & \vdots \\ {A}_{1n} & {A}_{2n} & \cdots & {A}_{nn} \\ \end{pmatrix}

Cofactor of a_{ij} of A is defined as

A_{ij}=(-1)^{i+j}M_{ij}

where M_{ij} is a minor of a_{ij}.
