# Matrices (linear algebra)¶

## Creating Matrices¶

The linear algebra module is designed to be as simple as possible. First, we import and declare our first Matrix object:

>>> from sympy.interactive.printing import init_printing
>>> init_printing(use_unicode=False, wrap_line=False, no_global=True)
>>> from sympy.matrices import Matrix, eye, zeros, ones, diag, GramSchmidt
>>> M = Matrix([[1,0,0], [0,0,0]]); M
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
>>> Matrix([M, (0, 0, -1)])
[1  0  0 ]
[        ]
[0  0  0 ]
[        ]
[0  0  -1]
>>> Matrix([[1, 2, 3]])
[1 2 3]
>>> Matrix([1, 2, 3])
[1]
[ ]
[2]
[ ]
[3]


In addition to creating a matrix from a list of appropriately-sized lists and/or matrices, SymPy also supports more advanced methods of matrix creation including a single list of values and dimension inputs:

>>> Matrix(2, 3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
[1  2  3]
[       ]
[4  5  6]


More interesting (and useful), is the ability to use a 2-variable function (or lambda) to create a matrix. Here we create an indicator function which is 1 on the diagonal and then use it to make the identity matrix:

>>> def f(i,j):
...     if i == j:
...         return 1
...     else:
...         return 0
...
>>> Matrix(4, 4, f)
[1  0  0  0]
[          ]
[0  1  0  0]
[          ]
[0  0  1  0]
[          ]
[0  0  0  1]


Finally let’s use lambda to create a 1-line matrix with 1’s in the even permutation entries:

>>> Matrix(3, 4, lambda i,j: 1 - (i+j) % 2)
[1  0  1  0]
[          ]
[0  1  0  1]
[          ]
[1  0  1  0]


There are also a couple of special constructors for quick matrix construction: eye is the identity matrix, zeros and ones for matrices of all zeros and ones, respectively, and diag to put matrices or elements along the diagonal:

>>> eye(4)
[1  0  0  0]
[          ]
[0  1  0  0]
[          ]
[0  0  1  0]
[          ]
[0  0  0  1]
>>> zeros(2)
[0  0]
[    ]
[0  0]
>>> zeros(2, 5)
[0  0  0  0  0]
[             ]
[0  0  0  0  0]
>>> ones(3)
[1  1  1]
[       ]
[1  1  1]
[       ]
[1  1  1]
>>> ones(1, 3)
[1  1  1]
>>> diag(1, Matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]]))
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  1  2]
[       ]
[0  3  4]


## Basic Manipulation¶

While learning to work with matrices, let’s choose one where the entries are readily identifiable. One useful thing to know is that while matrices are 2-dimensional, the storage is not and so it is allowable - though one should be careful - to access the entries as if they were a 1-d list.

>>> M = Matrix(2, 3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
>>> M[4]
5


Now, the more standard entry access is a pair of indices which will always return the value at the corresponding row and column of the matrix:

>>> M[1, 2]
6
>>> M[0, 0]
1
>>> M[1, 1]
5


Since this is Python we’re also able to slice submatrices; slices always give a matrix in return, even if the dimension is 1 x 1:

>>> M[0:2, 0:2]
[1  2]
[    ]
[4  5]
>>> M[2:2, 2]
[]
>>> M[:, 2]
[3]
[ ]
[6]
>>> M[:1, 2]
[3]


In the second example above notice that the slice 2:2 gives an empty range. Note also (in keeping with 0-based indexing of Python) the first row/column is 0.

You cannot access rows or columns that are not present unless they are in a slice:

>>> M[:, 10] # the 10-th column (not there)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
IndexError: Index out of range: a[[0, 10]]
>>> M[:, 10:11] # the 10-th column (if there)
[]
>>> M[:, :10] # all columns up to the 10-th
[1  2  3]
[       ]
[4  5  6]


Slicing an empty matrix works as long as you use a slice for the coordinate that has no size:

>>> Matrix(0, 3, [])[:, 1]
[]


Slicing gives a copy of what is sliced, so modifications of one object do not affect the other:

>>> M2 = M[:, :]
>>> M2[0, 0] = 100
>>> M[0, 0] == 100
False


Notice that changing M2 didn’t change M. Since we can slice, we can also assign entries:

>>> M = Matrix(([1,2,3,4],[5,6,7,8],[9,10,11,12],[13,14,15,16]))
>>> M
[1   2   3   4 ]
[              ]
[5   6   7   8 ]
[              ]
[9   10  11  12]
[              ]
[13  14  15  16]
>>> M[2,2] = M[0,3] = 0
>>> M
[1   2   3   0 ]
[              ]
[5   6   7   8 ]
[              ]
[9   10  0   12]
[              ]
[13  14  15  16]


as well as assign slices:

>>> M = Matrix(([1,2,3,4],[5,6,7,8],[9,10,11,12],[13,14,15,16]))
>>> M[2:,2:] = Matrix(2,2,lambda i,j: 0)
>>> M
[1   2   3  4]
[            ]
[5   6   7  8]
[            ]
[9   10  0  0]
[            ]
[13  14  0  0]


All the standard arithmetic operations are supported:

>>> M = Matrix(([1,2,3],[4,5,6],[7,8,9]))
>>> M - M
[0  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
>>> M + M
[2   4   6 ]
[          ]
[8   10  12]
[          ]
[14  16  18]
>>> M * M
[30   36   42 ]
[             ]
[66   81   96 ]
[             ]
[102  126  150]
>>> M2 = Matrix(3,1,[1,5,0])
>>> M*M2
[11]
[  ]
[29]
[  ]
[47]
>>> M**2
[30   36   42 ]
[             ]
[66   81   96 ]
[             ]
[102  126  150]


As well as some useful vector operations:

>>> M.row_del(0)
>>> M
[4  5  6]
[       ]
[7  8  9]
>>> M.col_del(1)
>>> M
[4  6]
[    ]
[7  9]
>>> v1 = Matrix([1,2,3])
>>> v2 = Matrix([4,5,6])
>>> v3 = v1.cross(v2)
>>> v1.dot(v2)
32
>>> v2.dot(v3)
0
>>> v1.dot(v3)
0


Recall that the row_del() and col_del() operations don’t return a value - they simply change the matrix object. We can also ‘’glue’’ together matrices of the appropriate size:

>>> M1 = eye(3)
>>> M2 = zeros(3, 4)
>>> M1.row_join(M2)
[1  0  0  0  0  0  0]
[                   ]
[0  1  0  0  0  0  0]
[                   ]
[0  0  1  0  0  0  0]
>>> M3 = zeros(4, 3)
>>> M1.col_join(M3)
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  1  0]
[       ]
[0  0  1]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]
[       ]
[0  0  0]


## Operations on entries¶

We are not restricted to having multiplication between two matrices:

>>> M = eye(3)
>>> 2*M
[2  0  0]
[       ]
[0  2  0]
[       ]
[0  0  2]
>>> 3*M
[3  0  0]
[       ]
[0  3  0]
[       ]
[0  0  3]


but we can also apply functions to our matrix entries using applyfunc(). Here we’ll declare a function that double any input number. Then we apply it to the 3x3 identity matrix:

>>> f = lambda x: 2*x
>>> eye(3).applyfunc(f)
[2  0  0]
[       ]
[0  2  0]
[       ]
[0  0  2]


One more useful matrix-wide entry application function is the substitution function. Let’s declare a matrix with symbolic entries then substitute a value. Remember we can substitute anything - even another symbol!:

>>> from sympy import Symbol
>>> x = Symbol('x')
>>> M = eye(3) * x
>>> M
[x  0  0]
[       ]
[0  x  0]
[       ]
[0  0  x]
>>> M.subs(x, 4)
[4  0  0]
[       ]
[0  4  0]
[       ]
[0  0  4]
>>> y = Symbol('y')
>>> M.subs(x, y)
[y  0  0]
[       ]
[0  y  0]
[       ]
[0  0  y]


## Linear algebra¶

Now that we have the basics out of the way, let’s see what we can do with the actual matrices. Of course, one of the first things that comes to mind is the determinant:

>>> M = Matrix(( [1, 2, 3], [3, 6, 2], [2, 0, 1] ))
>>> M.det()
-28
>>> M2 = eye(3)
>>> M2.det()
1
>>> M3 = Matrix(( [1, 0, 0], [1, 0, 0], [1, 0, 0] ))
>>> M3.det()
0


Another common operation is the inverse: In SymPy, this is computed by Gaussian elimination by default (for dense matrices) but we can specify it be done by $$LU$$ decomposition as well:

>>> M2.inv()
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  1  0]
[       ]
[0  0  1]
>>> M2.inv(method="LU")
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  1  0]
[       ]
[0  0  1]
>>> M.inv(method="LU")
[-3/14  1/14  1/2 ]
[                 ]
[-1/28  5/28  -1/4]
[                 ]
[ 3/7   -1/7   0  ]
>>> M * M.inv(method="LU")
[1  0  0]
[       ]
[0  1  0]
[       ]
[0  0  1]


We can perform a $$QR$$ factorization which is handy for solving systems:

>>> A = Matrix([[1,1,1],[1,1,3],[2,3,4]])
>>> Q, R = A.QRdecomposition()
>>> Q
[  ___     ___      ___ ]
[\/ 6   -\/ 3    -\/ 2  ]
[-----  -------  -------]
[  6       3        2   ]
[                       ]
[  ___     ___      ___ ]
[\/ 6   -\/ 3     \/ 2  ]
[-----  -------   ----- ]
[  6       3        2   ]
[                       ]
[  ___     ___          ]
[\/ 6    \/ 3           ]
[-----   -----      0   ]
[  3       3            ]
>>> R
[           ___         ]
[  ___  4*\/ 6       ___]
[\/ 6   -------  2*\/ 6 ]
[          3            ]
[                       ]
[          ___          ]
[        \/ 3           ]
[  0     -----      0   ]
[          3            ]
[                       ]
[                   ___ ]
[  0       0      \/ 2  ]
>>> Q*R
[1  1  1]
[       ]
[1  1  3]
[       ]
[2  3  4]


In addition to the solvers in the solver.py file, we can solve the system Ax=b by passing the b vector to the matrix A’s LUsolve function. Here we’ll cheat a little choose A and x then multiply to get b. Then we can solve for x and check that it’s correct:

>>> A = Matrix([ [2, 3, 5], [3, 6, 2], [8, 3, 6] ])
>>> x = Matrix(3,1,[3,7,5])
>>> b = A*x
>>> soln = A.LUsolve(b)
>>> soln
[3]
[ ]
[7]
[ ]
[5]


There’s also a nice Gram-Schmidt orthogonalizer which will take a set of vectors and orthogonalize them with respect to another. There is an optional argument which specifies whether or not the output should also be normalized, it defaults to False. Let’s take some vectors and orthogonalize them - one normalized and one not:

>>> L = [Matrix([2,3,5]), Matrix([3,6,2]), Matrix([8,3,6])]
>>> out1 = GramSchmidt(L)
>>> out2 = GramSchmidt(L, True)


Let’s take a look at the vectors:

>>> for i in out1:
...     print(i)
...
Matrix([[2], [3], [5]])
Matrix([[23/19], [63/19], [-47/19]])
Matrix([[1692/353], [-1551/706], [-423/706]])
>>> for i in out2:
...      print(i)
...
Matrix([[sqrt(38)/19], [3*sqrt(38)/38], [5*sqrt(38)/38]])
Matrix([[23*sqrt(6707)/6707], [63*sqrt(6707)/6707], [-47*sqrt(6707)/6707]])
Matrix([[12*sqrt(706)/353], [-11*sqrt(706)/706], [-3*sqrt(706)/706]])


We can spot-check their orthogonality with dot() and their normality with norm():

>>> out1[0].dot(out1[1])
0
>>> out1[0].dot(out1[2])
0
>>> out1[1].dot(out1[2])
0
>>> out2[0].norm()
1
>>> out2[1].norm()
1
>>> out2[2].norm()
1


So there is quite a bit that can be done with the module including eigenvalues, eigenvectors, nullspace calculation, cofactor expansion tools, and so on. From here one might want to look over the matrices.py file for all functionality.

LUdecomposition_Simple(iszerofunc=<function _iszero at 0xac3302c>)[source]

Returns A comprised of L, U (L’s diag entries are 1) and p which is the list of the row swaps (in order).

LUsolve(rhs, iszerofunc=<function _iszero at 0xac3302c>)[source]

This is for symbolic matrices, for real or complex ones use mpmath.lu_solve or mpmath.qr_solve.

QRdecomposition()[source]

Return Q, R where A = Q*R, Q is orthogonal and R is upper triangular.

Examples

This is the example from wikipedia:

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> A = Matrix([[12, -51, 4], [6, 167, -68], [-4, 24, -41]])
>>> Q, R = A.QRdecomposition()
>>> Q
Matrix([
[ 6/7, -69/175, -58/175],
[ 3/7, 158/175,   6/175],
[-2/7,    6/35,  -33/35]])
>>> R
Matrix([
[14,  21, -14],
[ 0, 175, -70],
[ 0,   0,  35]])
>>> A == Q*R
True


QR factorization of an identity matrix:

>>> A = Matrix([[1, 0, 0], [0, 1, 0], [0, 0, 1]])
>>> Q, R = A.QRdecomposition()
>>> Q
Matrix([
[1, 0, 0],
[0, 1, 0],
[0, 0, 1]])
>>> R
Matrix([
[1, 0, 0],
[0, 1, 0],
[0, 0, 1]])

QRsolve(b)[source]

Solve the linear system ‘Ax = b’.

‘self’ is the matrix ‘A’, the method argument is the vector ‘b’. The method returns the solution vector ‘x’. If ‘b’ is a matrix, the system is solved for each column of ‘b’ and the return value is a matrix of the same shape as ‘b’.

This method is slower (approximately by a factor of 2) but more stable for floating-point arithmetic than the LUsolve method. However, LUsolve usually uses an exact arithmetic, so you don’t need to use QRsolve.

This is mainly for educational purposes and symbolic matrices, for real (or complex) matrices use mpmath.qr_solve.

T

Matrix transposition.

Return self + b

Conjugate transpose or Hermitian conjugation.

Adjugate matrix is the transpose of the cofactor matrix.

cofactorMatrix, transpose, berkowitz

atoms(*types)[source]

Returns the atoms that form the current object.

Examples

>>> from sympy.abc import x, y
>>> from sympy.matrices import Matrix
>>> Matrix([[x]])
Matrix([[x]])
>>> _.atoms()
set([x])

berkowitz()[source]

The Berkowitz algorithm.

Given N x N matrix with symbolic content, compute efficiently coefficients of characteristic polynomials of ‘self’ and all its square sub-matrices composed by removing both i-th row and column, without division in the ground domain.

This method is particularly useful for computing determinant, principal minors and characteristic polynomial, when ‘self’ has complicated coefficients e.g. polynomials. Semi-direct usage of this algorithm is also important in computing efficiently sub-resultant PRS.

Assuming that M is a square matrix of dimension N x N and I is N x N identity matrix, then the following following definition of characteristic polynomial is begin used:

charpoly(M) = det(t*I - M)

As a consequence, all polynomials generated by Berkowitz algorithm are monic.

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> from sympy.abc import x, y, z

>>> M = Matrix([[x, y, z], [1, 0, 0], [y, z, x]])

>>> p, q, r = M.berkowitz()

>>> p # 1 x 1 M's sub-matrix
(1, -x)

>>> q # 2 x 2 M's sub-matrix
(1, -x, -y)

>>> r # 3 x 3 M's sub-matrix
(1, -2*x, x**2 - y*z - y, x*y - z**2)

berkowitz_charpoly(x=_lambda, simplify=<function simplify at 0xab49374>)[source]

Computes characteristic polynomial minors using Berkowitz method.

A PurePoly is returned so using different variables for x does not affect the comparison or the polynomials:

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> from sympy.abc import x, y
>>> A = Matrix([[1, 3], [2, 0]])
>>> A.berkowitz_charpoly(x) == A.berkowitz_charpoly(y)
True


Specifying x is optional; a Dummy with name lambda is used by default (which looks good when pretty-printed in unicode):

>>> A.berkowitz_charpoly().as_expr()
_lambda**2 - _lambda - 6


No test is done to see that x doesn’t clash with an existing symbol, so using the default (lambda) or your own Dummy symbol is the safest option:

>>> A = Matrix([[1, 2], [x, 0]])
>>> A.charpoly().as_expr()
_lambda**2 - _lambda - 2*x
>>> A.charpoly(x).as_expr()
x**2 - 3*x

berkowitz

charpoly(x=_lambda, simplify=<function simplify at 0xab49374>)

berkowitz

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> from sympy.abc import x, y
>>> A = Matrix([[1, 3], [2, 0]])
>>> A.berkowitz_charpoly(x) == A.berkowitz_charpoly(y)
True


Specifying x is optional; a Dummy with name lambda is used by default (which looks good when pretty-printed in unicode):

>>> A.berkowitz_charpoly().as_expr()
_lambda**2 - _lambda - 6


No test is done to see that x doesn’t clash with an existing symbol, so using the default (lambda) or your own Dummy symbol is the safest option:

>>> A = Matrix([[1, 2], [x, 0]])
>>> A.charpoly().as_expr()
_lambda**2 - _lambda - 2*x
>>> A.charpoly(x).as_expr()
x**2 - 3*x

bareis ... det_bareis berkowitz ... berkowitz_det det_LU ... det_LU_decomposition

det_bareis, berkowitz_det, det_LU

TODO: Implement algorithm for sparse matrices (SFF), http://www.eecis.udel.edu/~saunders/papers/sffge/it5.ps.

diagonal_solve(rhs)[source]

Solves Ax = B efficiently, where A is a diagonal Matrix, with non-zero diagonal entries.

True

diagonalize(reals_only=False, sort=False, normalize=False)[source]

Return (P, D), where D is diagonal and

D = P^-1 * M * P

where M is current matrix.

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> m = Matrix(3, 3, [1, 2, 0, 0, 3, 0, 2, -4, 2])
>>> m
Matrix([
[1,  2, 0],

Matrix([
[1, 0],
[0, 0]])

dot(b)[source]

Return the dot product of Matrix self and b relaxing the condition of compatible dimensions: if either the number of rows or columns are the same as the length of b then the dot product is returned. If self is a row or column vector, a scalar is returned. Otherwise, a list of results is returned (and in that case the number of columns in self must match the length of b).

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> M = Matrix([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]])

dual()[source]

Returns the dual of a matrix, which is:

$$(1/2)*levicivita(i, j, k, l)*M(k, l)$$ summed over indices $$k$$ and $$l$$

Since the levicivita method is anti_symmetric for any pairwise exchange of indices, the dual of a symmetric matrix is the zero matrix. Strictly speaking the dual defined here assumes that the ‘matrix’ $$M$$ is a contravariant anti_symmetric second rank tensor, so that the dual is a covariant second rank tensor.

eigenvals(**flags)[source]

Return eigen values using the berkowitz_eigenvals routine.

Since the roots routine doesn’t always work well with Floats, they will be replaced with Rationals before calling that routine. If this is not desired, set flag rational to False.

eigenvects(**flags)[source]

Return list of triples (eigenval, multiplicity, basis).

The flag simplify has two effects:
1) if bool(simplify) is True, as_content_primitive() will be used to tidy up normalization artifacts; 2) if nullspace needs simplification to compute the basis, the simplify flag will be passed on to the nullspace routine which will interpret it there.

If the matrix contains any Floats, they will be changed to Rationals for computation purposes, but the answers will be returned after being evaluated with evalf. If it is desired to removed small imaginary portions during the evalf step, pass a value for the chop flag.

evalf(prec=None, **options)[source]

Apply evalf() to each element of self.

exp()[source]

Return the exponentiation of a square matrix.

expand(deep=True, modulus=None, power_base=True, power_exp=True, mul=True, log=True, multinomial=True, basic=True, **hints)[source]

Examples

>>> from sympy.abc import x
>>> from sympy.matrices import Matrix
>>> Matrix(1, 1, [x*(x+1)])
Matrix([[x*(x + 1)]])
>>> _.expand()
Matrix([[x**2 + x]])

extract(rowsList, colsList)[source]

Return a submatrix by specifying a list of rows and columns. Negative indices can be given. All indices must be in the range -n <= i < n where n is the number of rows or columns.

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix
>>> m = Matrix(4, 3, range(12))
>>> m
Matrix([
[0,  1,  2],
[3,  4,  5],
[6,  7,  8],
[9, 10, 11]])
>>> m.extract([0, 1, 3], [0, 1])
Matrix([
[0,  1],
[3,  4],
[9, 10]])


Rows or columns can be repeated:

>>> m.extract([0, 0, 1], [-1])
Matrix([
[2],
[2],
[5]])


Every other row can be taken by using range to provide the indices:

>>> m.extract(range(0, m.rows, 2), [-1])
Matrix([
[2],
[8]])

free_symbols[source]

Returns the free symbols within the matrix.

Examples

>>> from sympy.abc import x
>>> from sympy.matrices import Matrix
>>> Matrix([[x], [1]]).free_symbols
set([x])

gauss_jordan_solve(b, freevar=False)[source]

Solves Ax = b using Gauss Jordan elimination.

There may be zero, one, or infinite solutions. If one solution exists, it will be returned. If infinite solutions exist, it will be returned parametrically. If no solutions exist, It will throw ValueError.

Parameters : b : Matrix The right hand side of the equation to be solved for. Must have the same number of rows as matrix A. freevar : List If the system is underdetermined (e.g. A has more columns than rows), infinite solutions are possible, in terms of an arbitrary values of free variables. Then the index of the free variables in the solutions (column Matrix) will be returned by freevar, if the flag $$freevar$$ is set to $$True$$. x : Matrix The matrix that will satisfy Ax = B. Will have as many rows as matrix A has columns, and as many columns as matrix B. params : Matrix If the system is underdetermined (e.g. A has more columns than rows), infinite solutions are possible, in terms of an arbitrary parameters. These arbitrary parameters are returned as params Matrix.

inv, inverse_LU, inverse_GE

inverse_GE(iszerofunc=<function _iszero at 0xac3302c>)[source]

Calculates the inverse using Gaussian elimination.

inverse_LU(iszerofunc=<function _iszero at 0xac3302c>)[source]

Calculates the inverse using LU decomposition.

is_anti_symmetric(simplify=True)[source]

Check if matrix M is an antisymmetric matrix, that is, M is a square matrix with all M[i, j] == -M[j, i].

When simplify=True (default), the sum M[i, j] + M[j, i] is simplified before testing to see if it is zero. By default, the SymPy simplify function is used. To use a custom function set simplify to a function that accepts a single argument which returns a simplified expression. To skip simplification, set simplify to False but note that although this will be faster, it may induce false negatives.

Examples

>>> from sympy import Matrix, symbols
>>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, -1, 0])
>>> m
Matrix([
[ 0, 1],
[-1, 0]])
>>> m.is_anti_symmetric()
True
>>> x, y = symbols('x y')
>>> m = Matrix(2, 3, [0, 0, x, -y, 0, 0])
>>> m
Matrix([
[ 0, 0, x],
[-y, 0, 0]])
>>> m.is_anti_symmetric()
False

>>> from sympy.abc import x, y
>>> m = Matrix(3, 3, [0, x**2 + 2*x + 1, y,
...                   -(x + 1)**2 , 0, x*y,
...                   -y, -x*y, 0])


Simplification of matrix elements is done by default so even though two elements which should be equal and opposite wouldn’t pass an equality test, the matrix is still reported as anti-symmetric:

>>> m[0, 1] == -m[1, 0]
False
>>> m.is_anti_symmetric()
True


If ‘simplify=False’ is used for the case when a Matrix is already simplified, this will speed things up. Here, we see that without simplification the matrix does not appear anti-symmetric:

>>> m.is_anti_symmetric(simplify=False)
False


But if the matrix were already expanded, then it would appear anti-symmetric and simplification in the is_anti_symmetric routine is not needed:

>>> m = m.expand()
>>> m.is_anti_symmetric(simplify=False)
True

is_diagonal()[source]

>>> a.is_nilpotent()
False

is_square[source]

Checks if a matrix is square.

A matrix is square if the number of rows equals the number of columns. The empty matrix is square by definition, since the number of rows and the number of columns are both zero.

True

is_zero[source]

pinv_solve(B, arbitrary_matrix=None)[source]

Solve Ax = B using the Moore-Penrose pseudoinverse.

There may be zero, one, or infinite solutions. If one solution exists, it will be returned. If infinite solutions exist, one will be returned based on the value of arbitrary_matrix. If no solutions exist, the least-squares solution is returned.

Parameters : B : Matrix The right hand side of the equation to be solved for. Must have the same number of rows as matrix A. arbitrary_matrix : Matrix If the system is underdetermined (e.g. A has more columns than rows), infinite solutions are possible, in terms of an arbitrary matrix. This parameter may be set to a specific matrix to use for that purpose; if so, it must be the same shape as x, with as many rows as matrix A has columns, and as many columns as matrix B. If left as None, an appropriate matrix containing dummy symbols in the form of wn_m will be used, with n and m being row and column position of each symbol. x : Matrix The matrix that will satisfy Ax = B. Will have as many rows as matrix A has columns, and as many columns as matrix B.

Notes

This may return either exact solutions or least squares solutions. To determine which, check A * A.pinv() * B == B. It will be True if exact solutions exist, and False if only a least-squares solution exists. Be aware that the left hand side of that equation may need to be simplified to correctly compare to the right hand side.

For a list of possible inversion methods, see the .inv() docstring.

solve_least_squares(rhs, method='CH')[source]

eye

Notes

When arguments are matrices they are fitted in resultant matrix.

The returned matrix is a mutable, dense matrix. To make it a different type, send the desired class for keyword cls.

Examples

>>> from sympy.matrices import diag, Matrix, ones
>>> diag(1, 2, 3)
Matrix([
[1, 0, 0],
[0, 2, 0],
[0, 0, 3]])
>>> diag(*[1, 2, 3])
Matrix([
[1, 0, 0],
[0, 2, 0],
[0, 0, 3]])


The diagonal elements can be matrices; diagonal filling will continue on the diagonal from the last element of the matrix:

>>> from sympy.abc import x, y, z
>>> a = Matrix([x, y, z])
>>> b = Matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]])
>>> c = Matrix([[5, 6]])
>>> diag(a, 7, b, c)
Matrix([
[x, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0],
[y, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0],
[z, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0],
[0, 7, 0, 0, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 3, 4, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 6]])


When diagonal elements are lists, they will be treated as arguments to Matrix:

>>> diag([1, 2, 3], 4)
Matrix([
[1, 0],
[2, 0],
[3, 0],
[0, 4]])
>>> diag([[1, 2, 3]], 4)
Matrix([
[1, 2, 3, 0],
[0, 0, 0, 4]])


A given band off the diagonal can be made by padding with a vertical or horizontal “kerning” vector:

>>> hpad = ones(0, 2)
Matrix([
[0, 0, 4, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 0, 5, 0],
[1, 0, 0, 0, 6],
[0, 2, 0, 0, 0],
[0, 0, 3, 0, 0]])


The type is mutable by default but can be made immutable by setting the mutable flag to False:

>>> type(diag(1))
<class 'sympy.matrices.dense.MutableDenseMatrix'>
>>> from sympy.matrices import ImmutableMatrix
>>> type(diag(1, cls=ImmutableMatrix))
<class 'sympy.matrices.immutable.ImmutableMatrix'>

sympy.matrices.dense.casoratian(seqs, n, zero=True)[source]

Given linear difference operator L of order ‘k’ and homogeneous equation Ly = 0 we want to compute kernel of L, which is a set of ‘k’ sequences: a(n), b(n), ... z(n).

Solutions of L are linearly independent iff their Casoratian, denoted as C(a, b, ..., z), do not vanish for n = 0.

Casoratian is defined by k x k determinant:

+  a(n)     b(n)     . . . z(n)     +
|  a(n+1)   b(n+1)   . . . z(n+1)   |
|    .         .     .        .     |
|    .         .       .      .     |
|    .         .         .    .     |
+  a(n+k-1) b(n+k-1) . . . z(n+k-1) +

It proves very useful in rsolve_hyper() where it is applied to a generating set of a recurrence to factor out linearly dependent solutions and return a basis:

>>> from sympy import Symbol, casoratian, factorial
>>> n = Symbol('n', integer=True)


Exponential and factorial are linearly independent:

>>> casoratian([2**n, factorial(n)], n) != 0
True

sympy.matrices.dense.randMatrix(r, c=None, min=0, max=99, seed=None, symmetric=False, percent=100, prng=None)[source]

Create random matrix with dimensions r x c. If c is omitted the matrix will be square. If symmetric is True the matrix must be square. If percent is less than 100 then only approximately the given percentage of elements will be non-zero.

The pseudo-random number generator used to generate matrix is chosen in the following way.

• If prng is supplied, it will be used as random number generator. It should be an instance of random.Random, or at least have randint and shuffle methods with same signatures.
• if prng is not supplied but seed is supplied, then new random.Random with given seed will be created;
• otherwise, a new random.Random with default seed will be used.

Examples

>>> from sympy.matrices import randMatrix
>>> randMatrix(3)
[25, 45, 27]
[44, 54,  9]
[23, 96, 46]
>>> randMatrix(3, 2)
[87, 29]
[23, 37]
[90, 26]
>>> randMatrix(3, 3, 0, 2)
[0, 2, 0]
[2, 0, 1]
[0, 0, 1]
>>> randMatrix(3, symmetric=True)
[85, 26, 29]
[26, 71, 43]
[29, 43, 57]
>>> A = randMatrix(3, seed=1)
>>> B = randMatrix(3, seed=2)
>>> A == B
False
>>> A == randMatrix(3, seed=1)
True
>>> randMatrix(3, symmetric=True, percent=50)
[0, 68, 43]
[0, 68,  0]
[0, 91, 34]


## Numpy Utility Functions Reference¶

sympy.matrices.dense.list2numpy(l, dtype=<type 'object'>)[source]

Converts python list of SymPy expressions to a NumPy array.

matrix2numpy

sympy.matrices.dense.matrix2numpy(m, dtype=<type 'object'>)[source]

Converts SymPy’s matrix to a NumPy array.

list2numpy

sympy.matrices.dense.symarray(prefix, shape, **kwargs)[source]

Create a numpy ndarray of symbols (as an object array).

The created symbols are named prefix_i1_i2_... You should thus provide a non-empty prefix if you want your symbols to be unique for different output arrays, as SymPy symbols with identical names are the same object.

Parameters : prefix : string A prefix prepended to the name of every symbol. shape : int or tuple Shape of the created array. If an int, the array is one-dimensional; for more than one dimension the shape must be a tuple. **kwargs : dict keyword arguments passed on to Symbol

Examples

These doctests require numpy.

>>> from sympy import symarray
>>> symarray('', 3)
[_0 _1 _2]


If you want multiple symarrays to contain distinct symbols, you must provide unique prefixes:

>>> a = symarray('', 3)
>>> b = symarray('', 3)
>>> a[0] == b[0]
True
>>> a = symarray('a', 3)
>>> b = symarray('b', 3)
>>> a[0] == b[0]
False


Creating symarrays with a prefix:

>>> symarray('a', 3)
[a_0 a_1 a_2]


For more than one dimension, the shape must be given as a tuple:

>>> symarray('a', (2, 3))
[[a_0_0 a_0_1 a_0_2]
[a_1_0 a_1_1 a_1_2]]
>>> symarray('a', (2, 3, 2))
[[[a_0_0_0 a_0_0_1]
[a_0_1_0 a_0_1_1]
[a_0_2_0 a_0_2_1]]

[[a_1_0_0 a_1_0_1]
[a_1_1_0 a_1_1_1]
[a_1_2_0 a_1_2_1]]]


For setting assumptions of the underlying Symbols:

>>> [s.is_real for s in symarray('a', 2, real=True)]
[True, True]
