Matrices (linear algebra)¶
Creating Matrices¶
The linear algebra module is designed to be as simple as possible. First, we
import and declare our first Matrix
object:
>>> init_printing(pretty_print=True, use_unicode=False, wrap_line=False, no_global=True)
>>> M = Matrix([[1, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0]]); M
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
>>> Matrix([M, (0, 0, 1)])
[1 0 0 ]
[ ]
[0 0 0 ]
[ ]
[0 0 1]
>>> Matrix([[1, 2, 3]])
[1 2 3]
>>> Matrix([1, 2, 3])
[1]
[ ]
[2]
[ ]
[3]
In addition to creating a matrix from a list of appropriatelysized lists and/or matrices, Diofant also supports more advanced methods of matrix creation including a single list of values and dimension inputs:
>>> Matrix(2, 3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
[1 2 3]
[ ]
[4 5 6]
More interesting (and useful), is the ability to use a 2variable function
(or lambda
) to create a matrix. Here we create an indicator function which
is 1 on the diagonal and then use it to make the identity matrix:
>>> def f(i, j):
... if i == j:
... return 1
... else:
... return 0
...
>>> Matrix(4, 4, f)
[1 0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0 1]
Finally let’s use lambda
to create a 1line matrix with 1’s in the even
permutation entries:
>>> Matrix(3, 4, lambda i, j: 1  (i + j)%2)
[1 0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0 1]
[ ]
[1 0 1 0]
There are also a couple of special constructors for quick matrix construction:
eye
is the identity matrix, zeros
and ones
for matrices of all
zeros and ones, respectively, and diag
to put matrices or elements along
the diagonal:
>>> eye(4)
[1 0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0 1]
>>> zeros(2)
[0 0]
[ ]
[0 0]
>>> zeros(2, 5)
[0 0 0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0 0 0]
>>> ones(3)
[1 1 1]
[ ]
[1 1 1]
[ ]
[1 1 1]
>>> ones(1, 3)
[1 1 1]
>>> diag(1, Matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]]))
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 2]
[ ]
[0 3 4]
Basic Manipulation¶
While learning to work with matrices, let’s choose one where the entries are readily identifiable. One useful thing to know is that while matrices are 2dimensional, the storage is not and so it is allowable  though one should be careful  to access the entries as if they were a 1d list.
>>> M = Matrix(2, 3, [1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6])
>>> M[4]
5
Now, the more standard entry access is a pair of indices which will always return the value at the corresponding row and column of the matrix:
>>> M[1, 2]
6
>>> M[0, 0]
1
>>> M[1, 1]
5
Since this is Python we’re also able to slice submatrices; slices always give a matrix in return, even if the dimension is 1 x 1:
>>> M[0:2, 0:2]
[1 2]
[ ]
[4 5]
>>> M[2:2, 2]
[]
>>> M[:, 2]
[3]
[ ]
[6]
>>> M[:1, 2]
[3]
In the second example above notice that the slice 2:2 gives an empty range. Note also (in keeping with 0based indexing of Python) the first row/column is 0.
You cannot access rows or columns that are not present unless they are in a slice:
>>> M[:, 10] # the 10th column (not there)
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
IndexError: Index out of range: a[[0, 10]]
>>> M[:, 10:11] # the 10th column (if there)
[]
>>> M[:, :10] # all columns up to the 10th
[1 2 3]
[ ]
[4 5 6]
Slicing an empty matrix works as long as you use a slice for the coordinate that has no size:
>>> Matrix(0, 3, [])[:, 1]
[]
Slicing gives a copy of what is sliced, so modifications of one object do not affect the other:
>>> M2 = M[:, :]
>>> M2[0, 0] = 100
>>> M[0, 0] == 100
False
Notice that changing M2
didn’t change M
. Since we can slice, we can also assign
entries:
>>> M = Matrix(([1, 2, 3, 4], [5, 6, 7, 8], [9, 10, 11, 12], [13, 14, 15, 16]))
>>> M
[1 2 3 4 ]
[ ]
[5 6 7 8 ]
[ ]
[9 10 11 12]
[ ]
[13 14 15 16]
>>> M[2, 2] = M[0, 3] = 0
>>> M
[1 2 3 0 ]
[ ]
[5 6 7 8 ]
[ ]
[9 10 0 12]
[ ]
[13 14 15 16]
as well as assign slices:
>>> M = Matrix(([1, 2, 3, 4], [5, 6, 7, 8], [9, 10, 11, 12], [13, 14, 15, 16]))
>>> M[2:, 2:] = Matrix(2, 2, lambda i, j: 0)
>>> M
[1 2 3 4]
[ ]
[5 6 7 8]
[ ]
[9 10 0 0]
[ ]
[13 14 0 0]
All the standard arithmetic operations are supported:
>>> M = Matrix(([1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]))
>>> M  M
[0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
>>> M + M
[2 4 6 ]
[ ]
[8 10 12]
[ ]
[14 16 18]
>>> M * M
[30 36 42 ]
[ ]
[66 81 96 ]
[ ]
[102 126 150]
>>> M2 = Matrix(3, 1, [1, 5, 0])
>>> M*M2
[11]
[ ]
[29]
[ ]
[47]
>>> M**2
[30 36 42 ]
[ ]
[66 81 96 ]
[ ]
[102 126 150]
As well as some useful vector operations:
>>> del M[0, :]
>>> M
[4 5 6]
[ ]
[7 8 9]
>>> del M[:, 1]
>>> M
[4 6]
[ ]
[7 9]
>>> v1 = Matrix([1, 2, 3])
>>> v2 = Matrix([4, 5, 6])
>>> v3 = v1.cross(v2)
>>> v1.dot(v2)
32
>>> v2.dot(v3)
0
>>> v1.dot(v3)
0
We can also ‘’glue’’ together matrices of the appropriate size:
>>> M1 = eye(3)
>>> M2 = zeros(3, 4)
>>> M1.row_join(M2)
[1 0 0 0 0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0 0 0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1 0 0 0 0]
>>> M3 = zeros(4, 3)
>>> M1.col_join(M3)
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
[ ]
[0 0 0]
Operations on entries¶
We are not restricted to having multiplication between two matrices:
>>> M = eye(3)
>>> 2*M
[2 0 0]
[ ]
[0 2 0]
[ ]
[0 0 2]
>>> 3*M
[3 0 0]
[ ]
[0 3 0]
[ ]
[0 0 3]
but we can also apply functions to our matrix entries using applyfunc()
. Here we’ll declare a function that double any input number. Then we apply it to the 3x3 identity matrix:
>>> f = lambda x: 2*x
>>> eye(3).applyfunc(f)
[2 0 0]
[ ]
[0 2 0]
[ ]
[0 0 2]
One more useful matrixwide entry application function is the substitution function. Let’s declare a matrix with symbolic entries then substitute a value. Remember we can substitute anything  even another symbol!:
>>> M = eye(3) * x
>>> M
[x 0 0]
[ ]
[0 x 0]
[ ]
[0 0 x]
>>> M.subs({x: 4})
[4 0 0]
[ ]
[0 4 0]
[ ]
[0 0 4]
>>> y = Symbol('y')
>>> M.subs({x: y})
[y 0 0]
[ ]
[0 y 0]
[ ]
[0 0 y]
Linear algebra¶
Now that we have the basics out of the way, let’s see what we can do with the actual matrices. Of course, one of the first things that comes to mind is the determinant:
>>> M = Matrix(([1, 2, 3], [3, 6, 2], [2, 0, 1]))
>>> M.det()
28
>>> M2 = eye(3)
>>> M2.det()
1
>>> M3 = Matrix(([1, 0, 0], [1, 0, 0], [1, 0, 0]))
>>> M3.det()
0
Another common operation is the inverse: In Diofant, this is computed by Gaussian elimination by default (for dense matrices) but we can specify it be done by \(LU\) decomposition as well:
>>> M2.inv()
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1]
>>> M2.inv(method="LU")
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1]
>>> M.inv(method="LU")
[3/14 1/14 1/2 ]
[ ]
[1/28 5/28 1/4]
[ ]
[ 3/7 1/7 0 ]
>>> M * M.inv(method="LU")
[1 0 0]
[ ]
[0 1 0]
[ ]
[0 0 1]
We can perform a \(QR\) factorization which is handy for solving systems:
>>> A = Matrix([[1, 1, 1], [1, 1, 3], [2, 3, 4]])
>>> Q, R = A.QRdecomposition()
>>> Q
[ ___ ___ ___ ]
[\/ 6 \/ 3 \/ 2 ]
[  ]
[ 6 3 2 ]
[ ]
[ ___ ___ ___ ]
[\/ 6 \/ 3 \/ 2 ]
[   ]
[ 6 3 2 ]
[ ]
[ ___ ___ ]
[\/ 6 \/ 3 ]
[  0 ]
[ 3 3 ]
>>> R
[ ___ ]
[ ___ 4*\/ 6 ___]
[\/ 6  2*\/ 6 ]
[ 3 ]
[ ]
[ ___ ]
[ \/ 3 ]
[ 0  0 ]
[ 3 ]
[ ]
[ ___ ]
[ 0 0 \/ 2 ]
>>> Q*R
[1 1 1]
[ ]
[1 1 3]
[ ]
[2 3 4]
In addition to the solvers in the solver.py
file, we can solve the system Ax=b
by passing the b vector to the matrix A’s LUsolve function. Here we’ll cheat a
little choose A and x then multiply to get b. Then we can solve for x and check
that it’s correct:
>>> A = Matrix([[2, 3, 5], [3, 6, 2], [8, 3, 6]])
>>> x = Matrix(3, 1, [3, 7, 5])
>>> b = A*x
>>> soln = A.LUsolve(b)
>>> soln
[3]
[ ]
[7]
[ ]
[5]
There’s also a nice GramSchmidt orthogonalizer which will take a set of
vectors and orthogonalize them with respect to another. There is an
optional argument which specifies whether or not the output should also be
normalized, it defaults to False
. Let’s take some vectors and orthogonalize
them  one normalized and one not:
>>> L = [Matrix([2, 3, 5]), Matrix([3, 6, 2]), Matrix([8, 3, 6])]
>>> out1 = GramSchmidt(L)
>>> out2 = GramSchmidt(L, True)
Let’s take a look at the vectors:
>>> for i in out1:
... print(i)
...
Matrix([
[2],
[3],
[5]])
Matrix([
[ 23/19],
[ 63/19],
[47/19]])
Matrix([
[ 1692/353],
[1551/706],
[ 423/706]])
>>> for i in out2:
... print(i)
...
Matrix([
[ sqrt(38)/19],
[3*sqrt(38)/38],
[5*sqrt(38)/38]])
Matrix([
[ 23*sqrt(6707)/6707],
[ 63*sqrt(6707)/6707],
[47*sqrt(6707)/6707]])
Matrix([
[ 12*sqrt(706)/353],
[11*sqrt(706)/706],
[ 3*sqrt(706)/706]])
We can spotcheck their orthogonality with dot() and their normality with norm():
>>> out1[0].dot(out1[1])
0
>>> out1[0].dot(out1[2])
0
>>> out1[1].dot(out1[2])
0
>>> out2[0].norm()
1
>>> out2[1].norm()
1
>>> out2[2].norm()
1
So there is quite a bit that can be done with the module including eigenvalues,
eigenvectors, nullspace calculation, cofactor expansion tools, and so on. From
here one might want to look over the matrices.py
file for all functionality.

QRsolve
(b)[source]¶ Solve the linear system ‘Ax = b’.
‘self’ is the matrix ‘A’, the method argument is the vector ‘b’. The method returns the solution vector ‘x’. If ‘b’ is a matrix, the system is solved for each column of ‘b’ and the return value is a matrix of the same shape as ‘b’.
This method is slower (approximately by a factor of 2) but more stable for floatingpoint arithmetic than the LUsolve method. However, LUsolve usually uses an exact arithmetic, so you don’t need to use QRsolve.
This is mainly for educational purposes and symbolic matrices, for real (or complex) matrices use mpmath.qr_solve.

T
¶ Matrix transposition.

adjugate
(method='berkowitz')[source]¶ Returns the adjugate matrix.
Adjugate matrix is the transpose of the cofactor matrix.

Examples
>>> Matrix([[x]]) Matrix([[x]]) >>> _.atoms() {x}

berkowitz
()[source]¶ The Berkowitz algorithm.
Given N x N matrix with symbolic content, compute efficiently coefficients of characteristic polynomials of ‘self’ and all its square submatrices composed by removing both ith row and column, without division in the ground domain.
This method is particularly useful for computing determinant, principal minors and characteristic polynomial, when ‘self’ has complicated coefficients e.g. polynomials. Semidirect usage of this algorithm is also important in computing efficiently subresultant PRS.
Assuming that M is a square matrix of dimension N x N and I is N x N identity matrix, then the following following definition of characteristic polynomial is begin used:
charpoly(M) = det(t*I  M)As a consequence, all polynomials generated by Berkowitz algorithm are monic.
>>> M = Matrix([[x, y, z], [1, 0, 0], [y, z, x]])
>>> p, q, r = M.berkowitz()
>>> p # 1 x 1 M's submatrix (1, x)
>>> q # 2 x 2 M's submatrix (1, x, y)
>>> r # 3 x 3 M's submatrix (1, 2*x, x**2  y*z  y, x*y  z**2)

berkowitz_charpoly
(x=Dummy('lambda'), simplify=<function simplify>)[source]¶ Computes characteristic polynomial minors using Berkowitz method.

If self is a row or column vector, a scalar is returned. Otherwise, a list of results is returned (and in that case the number of columns in self must match the length of b).
Examples

dual
()[source]¶ Returns the dual of a matrix, which is:
\((1/2)*levicivita(i, j, k, l)*M(k, l)\) summed over indices \(k\) and \(l\)
Since the levicivita method is anti_symmetric for any pairwise exchange of indices, the dual of a symmetric matrix is the zero matrix. Strictly speaking the dual defined here assumes that the ‘matrix’ \(M\) is a contravariant anti_symmetric second rank tensor, so that the dual is a covariant second rank tensor.

eigenvals
(**flags)[source]¶ Return eigen values using the berkowitz_eigenvals routine.
Since the roots routine doesn’t always work well with Floats, they will be replaced with Rationals before calling that routine. If this is not desired, set flag
rational
to False.

eigenvects
(**flags)[source]¶ Return list of triples (eigenval, multiplicity, basis).
 The flag
simplify
has two effects:  1) if bool(simplify) is True, as_content_primitive() will be used to tidy up normalization artifacts; 2) if nullspace needs simplification to compute the basis, the simplify flag will be passed on to the nullspace routine which will interpret it there.
If the matrix contains any Floats, they will be changed to Rationals for computation purposes, but the answers will be returned after being evaluated with evalf. If it is desired to removed small imaginary portions during the evalf step, pass a value for the
chop
flag. The flag

expand

extract
(rowsList, colsList)[source]¶ Return a submatrix by specifying a list of rows and columns. Negative indices can be given. All indices must be in the range n <= i < n where n is the number of rows or columns.

Rows or columns can be repeated:
>>> m.extract([0, 0, 1], [1]) Matrix([ [2], [2], [5]])
Every other row can be taken by using range to provide the indices:
>>> m.extract(range(0, m.rows, 2), [1]) Matrix([ [2], [8]])

 Compute \(\mathrm{adj}(K) = \mathrm{cof}(K)^t\), the adjoint matrix of \(K\).
 Compute \(r = 1/\mathrm{det}(K) \pmod m\).
 \(K^{1} = r\cdot \mathrm{adj}(K) \pmod m\).

(iszerofunc=<function _iszero>)[source]¶ Calculates the inverse using Gaussian elimination.

is_anti_symmetric
(simplify=True)[source]¶ Check if matrix M is an antisymmetric matrix, that is, M is a square matrix with all M[i, j] == M[j, i].
When
simplify=True
(default), the sum M[i, j] + M[j, i] is simplified before testing to see if it is zero. By default, the Diofant simplify function is used. To use a custom function set simplify to a function that accepts a single argument which returns a simplified expression. To skip simplification, set simplify to False but note that although this will be faster, it may induce false negatives.Examples
>>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, 1, 0]) >>> m Matrix([ [ 0, 1], [1, 0]]) >>> m.is_anti_symmetric() True >>> x, y = symbols('x y') >>> m = Matrix(2, 3, [0, 0, x, y, 0, 0]) >>> m Matrix([ [ 0, 0, x], [y, 0, 0]]) >>> m.is_anti_symmetric() False
>>> m = Matrix(3, 3, [0, x**2 + 2*x + 1, y, ... (x + 1)**2 , 0, x*y, ... y, x*y, 0])
Simplification of matrix elements is done by default so even though two elements which should be equal and opposite wouldn’t pass an equality test, the matrix is still reported as antisymmetric:
>>> m[0, 1] == m[1, 0] False >>> m.is_anti_symmetric() True
If ‘simplify=False’ is used for the case when a Matrix is already simplified, this will speed things up. Here, we see that without simplification the matrix does not appear antisymmetric:
>>> m.is_anti_symmetric(simplify=False) False
But if the matrix were already expanded, then it would appear antisymmetric and simplification in the is_anti_symmetric routine is not needed:
>>> m = m.expand() >>> m.is_anti_symmetric(simplify=False) True

is_diagonal
()[source]¶ Check if matrix is diagonal, that is matrix in which the entries outside the main diagonal are all zero.
Examples
>>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [1, 0, 0, 2]) >>> m Matrix([ [1, 0], [0, 2]]) >>> m.is_diagonal() True
>>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [1, 1, 0, 2]) >>> m Matrix([ [1, 1], [0, 2]]) >>> m.is_diagonal() False

is_diagonalizable
(reals_only=False, clear_subproducts=True)[source]¶ Check if matrix is diagonalizable.

Examples
>>> m = Matrix(3, 3, [1, 2, 0, 0, 3, 0, 2, 4, 2]) >>> m Matrix([ [1, 2, 0], [0, 3, 0], [2, 4, 2]]) >>> m.is_diagonalizable() True >>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, 0, 0]) >>> m Matrix([ [0, 1], [0, 0]]) >>> m.is_diagonalizable() False >>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [0, 1, 1, 0]) >>> m Matrix([ [ 0, 1], [1, 0]]) >>> m.is_diagonalizable() True >>> m.is_diagonalizable(True) False

>>> m = Matrix(2, 2, [x**2 + y, y**2 + x, 0, x + y]) >>> m Matrix([ [x**2 + y, x + y**2], [ 0, x + y]]) >>> m.is_lower False

is_symmetric
(simplify=True)[source]¶ Check if matrix is symmetric matrix, that is square matrix and is equal to its transpose.

>>> A = Matrix([1, 2, 3]) >>> B = Matrix([2, 3, 4]) >>> S = Matrix(A.row_join(B)) >>> S Matrix([ [1, 2], [2, 3], [3, 4]])
If each line of S represent coefficients of Ax + By and x and y are [2, 3] then S*xy is:
>>> r = S*Matrix([2, 3]); r Matrix([ [ 8], [13], [18]])
But let’s add 1 to the middle value and then solve for the leastsquares value of xy:
>>> xy = S.solve_least_squares(Matrix([8, 14, 18])); xy Matrix([ [ 5/3], [10/3]])
The error is given by S*xy  r:
>>> S*xy  r Matrix([ [1/3], [1/3], [1/3]]) >>> _.norm().evalf(2) 0.58
If a different xy is used, the norm will be higher:
>>> xy += ones(2, 1)/10 >>> (S*xy  r).norm().evalf(2) 1.5

subs
(*args, **kwargs)[source]¶ Return a new matrix with subs applied to each entry.
Examples
>>> SparseMatrix(1, 1, [x]) Matrix([[x]]) >>> _.subs({x: y}) Matrix([[y]]) >>> Matrix(_).subs({y: x}) Matrix([[x]])

table
(printer, rowstart='[', rowend=']', rowsep='\n', colsep=', ', align='right')[source]¶ String form of Matrix as a table.
printer
is the printer to use for on the elements (generally something like StrPrinter())rowstart
is the string used to start each row (by default ‘[‘).rowend
is the string used to end each row (by default ‘]’).rowsep
is the string used to separate rows (by default a newline).colsep
is the string used to separate columns (by default ‘, ‘).align
defines how the elements are aligned. Must be one of ‘left’, ‘right’, or ‘center’. You can also use ‘<’, ‘>’, and ‘^’ to mean the same thing, respectively.This is used by the string printer for Matrix.
Examples
>>> from diofant.printing.str import StrPrinter >>> M = Matrix([[1, 2], [33, 4]]) >>> printer = StrPrinter() >>> M.table(printer) '[ 1, 2]\n[33, 4]' >>> print(M.table(printer)) [ 1, 2] [33, 4] >>> print(M.table(printer, rowsep=',\n')) [ 1, 2], [33, 4] >>> print('[%s]' % M.table(printer, rowsep=',\n')) [[ 1, 2], [33, 4]] >>> print(M.table(printer, colsep=' ')) [ 1 2] [33 4] >>> print(M.table(printer, align='center')) [ 1 , 2] [33, 4] >>> print(M.table(printer, rowstart='{', rowend='}')) { 1, 2} {33, 4}

vec
()[source]¶ Return the Matrix converted into a one column matrix by stacking columns
Examples

vech
(diagonal=True, check_symmetry=True)[source]¶ Return the unique elements of a symmetric Matrix as a one column matrix by stacking the elements in the lower triangle.
Arguments: diagonal – include the diagonal cells of self or not check_symmetry – checks symmetry of self but not completely reliably
Examples

diofant.matrices.matrices.
classof
(A, B)[source]¶ Get the type of the result when combining matrices of different types.
Currently the strategy is that immutability is contagious.
Examples
>>> M = Matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]]) # a Mutable Matrix >>> IM = ImmutableMatrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]]) >>> classof(M, IM) <class 'diofant.matrices.immutable.ImmutableMatrix'>

r
rows andc
columns; ifc
is omitted a square matrix will be returned.

diofant.matrices.dense.
ones
(r, c=None)[source]¶ Returns a matrix of ones with
r
rows andc
columns; ifc
is omitted a square matrix will be returned.

diofant.matrices.dense.
diag
(*values, **kwargs)[source]¶ Create a sparse, diagonal matrix from a list of diagonal values.
Notes
When arguments are matrices they are fitted in resultant matrix.
The returned matrix is a mutable, dense matrix. To make it a different type, send the desired class for keyword
cls
.Examples
>>> diag(1, 2, 3) Matrix([ [1, 0, 0], [0, 2, 0], [0, 0, 3]]) >>> diag(*[1, 2, 3]) Matrix([ [1, 0, 0], [0, 2, 0], [0, 0, 3]])
The diagonal elements can be matrices; diagonal filling will continue on the diagonal from the last element of the matrix:
>>> a = Matrix([x, y, z]) >>> b = Matrix([[1, 2], [3, 4]]) >>> c = Matrix([[5, 6]]) >>> diag(a, 7, b, c) Matrix([ [x, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [y, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [z, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 7, 0, 0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 1, 2, 0, 0], [0, 0, 3, 4, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0, 0, 5, 6]])
When diagonal elements are lists, they will be treated as arguments to Matrix:
>>> diag([1, 2, 3], 4) Matrix([ [1, 0], [2, 0], [3, 0], [0, 4]]) >>> diag([[1, 2, 3]], 4) Matrix([ [1, 2, 3, 0], [0, 0, 0, 4]])
A given band off the diagonal can be made by padding with a vertical or horizontal “kerning” vector:
>>> hpad = ones(0, 2) >>> vpad = ones(2, 0) >>> diag(vpad, 1, 2, 3, hpad) + diag(hpad, 4, 5, 6, vpad) Matrix([ [0, 0, 4, 0, 0], [0, 0, 0, 5, 0], [1, 0, 0, 0, 6], [0, 2, 0, 0, 0], [0, 0, 3, 0, 0]])
The type is mutable by default but can be made immutable by setting the
mutable
flag to False:>>> type(diag(1)) <class 'diofant.matrices.dense.MutableDenseMatrix'> >>> type(diag(1, cls=ImmutableMatrix)) <class 'diofant.matrices.immutable.ImmutableMatrix'>

casoratian
(seqs, n, zero=True)[source]¶ Given linear difference operator L of order ‘k’ and homogeneous equation Ly = 0 we want to compute kernel of L, which is a set of ‘k’ sequences: a(n), b(n), … z(n).
Solutions of L are linearly independent iff their Casoratian, denoted as C(a, b, …, z), do not vanish for n = 0.
Casoratian is defined by k x k determinant:
+ a(n) b(n) . . . z(n) +  a(n+1) b(n+1) . . . z(n+1)   . . . .   . . . .   . . . .  + a(n+k1) b(n+k1) . . . z(n+k1) +
It proves very useful in rsolve_hyper() where it is applied to a generating set of a recurrence to factor out linearly dependent solutions and return a basis:
>>> n = Symbol('n', integer=True)
Exponential and factorial are linearly independent:
>>> casoratian([2**n, factorial(n)], n) != 0 True

symarray
(prefix, shape, **kwargs)[source]¶ Create a numpy ndarray of symbols (as an object array).
The created symbols are named
prefix_i1_i2_
… You should thus provide a nonempty prefix if you want your symbols to be unique for different output arrays, as Diofant symbols with identical names are the same object.Parameters:  prefix (string) – A prefix prepended to the name of every symbol.
 shape (int or tuple) – Shape of the created array. If an int, the array is onedimensional; for more than one dimension the shape must be a tuple.
 **kwargs (dict) – keyword arguments passed on to Symbol
Examples
These doctests require numpy.
>>> symarray('', 3) [_0 _1 _2]
If you want multiple symarrays to contain distinct symbols, you must provide unique prefixes:
>>> a = symarray('', 3) >>> b = symarray('', 3) >>> a[0] == b[0] True >>> a = symarray('a', 3) >>> b = symarray('b', 3) >>> a[0] == b[0] False
Creating symarrays with a prefix:
>>> symarray('a', 3) [a_0 a_1 a_2]
For more than one dimension, the shape must be given as a tuple:
>>> symarray('a', (2, 3)) [[a_0_0 a_0_1 a_0_2] [a_1_0 a_1_1 a_1_2]] >>> symarray('a', (2, 3, 2)) [[[a_0_0_0 a_0_0_1] [a_0_1_0 a_0_1_1] [a_0_2_0 a_0_2_1]] <BLANKLINE> [[a_1_0_0 a_1_0_1] [a_1_1_0 a_1_1_1] [a_1_2_0 a_1_2_1]]]
For setting assumptions of the underlying Symbols:
>>> [s.is_real for s in symarray('a', 2, real=True)] [True, True]
