Scilab Function

im_inv - inverse image

Calling Sequence

[X,dim]=im_inv(A,B [,tol])
[X,dim,Y]=im_inv(A,B, [,tol])

Parameters

• A,B : two real or complex matrices with equal number of columns
• X : orthogonal or unitary square matrix of order equal to the number of columns of A
• dim : integer (dimension of subspace)
• Y : orthogonal matrix of order equal to the number of rows of A and B.

Description

computes

(A^-1)(B)

i.e vectors whose image through A are in range(B)

The dim first columns of X span

(A^-1) (B)

tol is a threshold used to test if subspace inclusion; default value is tol = 100*%eps. If Y is returned, then [Y*A*X,Y*B] is partitioned as follows:

```[A11,A12;0,A22],[B1;0]
```

where B1 has full row rank (equals rank(B)) and A22 has full column rank and has dim columns.

Examples

```A=[rand(2,5);[zeros(3,4),rand(3,1)]];B=[[1,1;1,1];zeros(3,2)];
W=rand(5,5);A=W*A;B=W*B;
[X,dim]=im_inv(A,B)
svd([A*X(:,1:dim),B])   //vectors A*X(:,1:dim) belong to range(B)
[X,dim,Y]=im_inv(A,B);[Y*A*X,Y*B]
```
