ab: Summary: This paper deals with the ancient origin of matrices, and the
system of linear equations. Included are algebraic properties of
matrices, determinants, linear transformations, and Cramerâ€™s rule for
solving the system of algebraic equations. Special attention is given
to some special matrices, including matrices in graph theory and
electrical networks. It contains a wide variety of important materials
accessible to college and even high school students and teachers at all
levels.
