Math SL Matrix Binomials Portfolio

        This portfolio will investigate the properties of matrix binomials in order to determine a general statement for Mn where n is a real number and an integer, and M is the 2image00.pngimage00.png matrix image28.pngimage28.png

n must also be greater than zero. It cannot equal zero because any matrix raised to the power of zero would equal I the identity matrix, and it cannot be less than zero, because that would be the same as one divided by the matrix raised to the power of n. Since it is not possible to divide an integer by a matrix, it is not possible to raise any matrix to a negative exponent and this n must be greater than zero. Therefore the expressions determined in this portfolio are valid for 2image36.pngimage36.pngmatrices, where the value of n is greater than zero

    The value of y equals 0 and the value of x equals a positive number on the positive x axis. Therefore, when the value of y is divided by the value of x, 0 is divided by a positive number, resulting to 0.

    the following logistic function graph: - The table and graph confirm how higher growth rates above 2 lead to less stability in population. Here, the variance from the long term sustainable limit (which is 60000) is much more (64703 in the 3rd year)

    n Z+ (X + Y) = = 2(I) where I is the Identity matrix From this we can get the following general formula (X + Y)n = (2I)n To test the validity of this statement we will test out different values for n. n=1 (X + Y)n = (2I)n (X + Y)1 = (2I)1 X + Y = (2I)

    It can be realized then that the number of dots of the original triangular diagram can be derived through the simple triangular area formula: It is easy to see then that: The 1st triangular number= (1 X 2) / 2 = 1 The 2nd triangular number= (2 X 3)

    Example, Scalar (real number) multiplication is the multiplication of the matrix using real number. In this case, a real number is multiplied by each element in the matrix one by one. Example: The multiplication of matrices is very different from the addition or the scalar multiplication of matrices.
