## Solving Linear Equations Using Matrices

Consider the linear system of equations

in matrix form:

*determinant*of the matrix ) is nonzero. For larger matrices, numerical algorithms are used to invert matrices, such as used by Matlab based on LINPACK [25]. An initial introduction to matrices and linear algebra can be found in [47].
