In my own matrix-calculator I implemented ' for transpose - but this is again misleading in a context of discussion of derivatives. What I really *hate* is the T-superscript . So any good proposal is welcome...

I like the illustration by examples.

Though I find the V(x)~ very cumbersome ...

Quote:What I miss however is a suitable discussion of finite versus infinite matrices. For example if you approximate an infinite matrix M by finite matrices M_n then the inverse of the infinite matrix is not always the limit of the inverses of M_n.

Which is discussed in this video (unfortunately it seems currently not to be available) which I mentioned already here.

Well, it's a bit time ago, that I found small books concerning that matter and going into it in at least some detail. In general, I felt lost with that subject - may be I missed better treatises because I didn't recognize them - if the surrounding jungle of abstract terms/formalisms etc is too wild.

I really liked it, if I found something straightforward... In this view, the video was not helpful for me - not only was it very generally discussed beginning with infinite matrices to both sides, also I didn't find relations to my real problems with them (maybe I only was unable to see this): beginning with triangular real matrices, proceeding to complex-valued matrices and then, possibly, extension to fourway-infinite matrices. And including the concept of divergent series: I think it is needed to be familiar with this, since in our context we have to deal with such matrices/powerseries daily.
