## What is Sylvester Theorem?

Sylvester theorem on spherical harmonics. Sylvester’s criterion, a characterization of positive-definite Hermitian matrices. Sylvester’s inequality about the rank (linear algebra) of the product of two matrices. Sylvester’s closed solution for the Frobenius coin problem when there are only two coins.

## What is Sylvester matrix equation?

In mathematics, in the field of control theory, a Sylvester equation is a matrix equation of the form: Then given matrices A, B, and C, the problem is to find the possible matrices X that obey this equation. All matrices are assumed to have coefficients in the complex numbers.

**How do you calculate the leading principal minor?**

Then the leading principal minors are D1 = a and D2 = ac − b2. If we want to find all the principal minors, these are given by ∆1 = a and ∆1 = c (of order one) and ∆2 = ac − b2 (of order two).

**What is a positive semi definite matrix?**

A positive semidefinite matrix is a Hermitian matrix all of whose eigenvalues are nonnegative. A matrix. may be tested to determine if it is positive semidefinite in the Wolfram Language using PositiveSemidefiniteMatrixQ[m].

### How do you find the determinant of a block matrix?

det ( M ) = det ( A − B D − 1 C ) det ( D ) . (the determinant of a block triangular matrix is the product of the determinants of its diagonal blocks). If m=n and if C,D commute then det(M)=det(AD−BC) det ( M ) = det ( A D − B C ) .

### What is a resultant matrix?

Definition. The resultant of two univariate polynomials over a field or over a commutative ring is commonly defined as the determinant of their Sylvester matrix. More precisely, let. and. be nonzero polynomials of degrees d and e respectively.

**What is leading principal submatrix?**

The principal submatrices of a matrix are the matrix itself and those submatrices obtained from it by repeatedly striking out a row and the column of the same index. The leading principal sub matrices are Lhose obtained by striking out exactly one row and its cOlTesponding column.

**What is negative semidefinite matrix?**

A negative semidefinite matrix is a Hermitian matrix all of whose eigenvalues are nonpositive. A matrix. may be tested to determine if it is negative semidefinite in the Wolfram Language using NegativeSemidefiniteMatrixQ[m].

#### What is Sylvester’s theorem?

Sylvester’s theorem or the Sylvester theorem may refer to any of several theorems named after James Joseph Sylvester : The Sylvester–Gallai theorem, on the existence of a line with only two of n given points. Sylvester’s determinant identity. Sylvester’s matrix theorem, also called Sylvester’s formula, for a matrix function in terms of eigenvalues.

#### What is Sylvester’s triangle problem?

Sylvester’s triangle problem, a particular geometric representation of the sum of three vectors of equal length The Weinstein–Aronszajn identity, stating that det ( I + AB) = det ( I + BA ), for matrices A , B, is sometimes attributed to Sylvester.

**What are some interesting mathematical facts about Sylvester?**
