#### Block diagonal matrix from a skew-symmetric matrix

```Dear Group members,

I'm trying to solve the following algebra problem

Consider a skew-symmetric matrix of the form:

B=[0,A;
-At,0]

where 0 stands for a null matrix and At the transpose of matrix A.

Is it possible to obtain a transformation of this matrix such as the
new matrix in the new coordinates would be a block diagonal matrix of
the form:

C=[C1,0;
0,C2]

with C=Tt * B * T, being T the transformation matrix?

If possible how can I obtain such a transformation matrix?

Thanks,

RV

```

affecting a matrix rows as diagonal blocks in another matrix
Hi Suppose i have a matrix A= [1 4 5 8 7 3 6 5 2] I want to have a matrix B such each row of it has a row from A at the diagonal B=[1 4 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 8 7 3 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 6 5 2] how can i do it.

hallo there. I want to put a matrix that is 128X128 in a matrix that is 512X512 ( ones(512) ). what I want to do is to have the white image and above to put the second image ( a letter, A for example).

Matrix in a matrix?
Hi to all, I've encountered a problem using Matlab. As I'm not very familiar with matlab, there are functions which I have not used before. What I would like to know, if there is a way to express a matrix within a matrix. For example, R= [ r1 r2 r3 ... rn] where rn=[xn yn tn] and xn, yn, tn are column of numbers. I used the following code below to express the numbers in rn as coloumns for easy referencing. xn=r(:,1); %represents the columns in the matrix yn=r(:,2); tn=r(:,3); My objective is to be able to retrieve information in the matrix easily and compare their values. Meani...

a symmetric matrix left muliplies a matrix and right its transpose is not symmetric
Hi, I have one question about the symmetry of the matrix. Lets say we have a symmetric matrix A, then I?multiply a matrix B before A and B' after A, i.e. BAB', which should be also a symmetric matrix. However, in Matlab, BAB' is not symmetric. Is this simply a numerical error? Any way to overcome this instead of forcing it symmetric like imposing the upper (or lower) triangular part to the opposite side which can cause some further problems in later usage of the matrix(BAB') from my trial, e.g. a theoretically positive definite symmetric matrix is not positive anymore. ...

How do I create a diagonal matrix with block matricies on the diagonal?
Hello all, I need to create a square matrix that has square block matricies along the diagonal and zeros everywhere else. That is to say, I need to create a block diagonal matrix where each submatrix is different. The overall matrix needs to have the form: M = - - | sm1 0 0 | | 0 sm2 0 | | 0 0 sm3 | - - Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Either post a reply or email me directly(phatphreak74@yahoo.ca). thanks in advance, the phreak phat phreak wrote: > Hello all, > I need to create a square matrix that has square block matricies > along the diagonal and zeros everywhere el...

Fast Matrix*Diagonal*Matrix operation
Hi there, I have a code that computes Q'*D(t)*Q many times. Here Q is a fixed mxn matrix with m < n, while the diagonal matrix D depends on the iteration t. Because I have so many iterations that the operation slows done the entire process. I am wondering if there is any way to obtain Q'*D(t)*Q as fast as possible. Maybe from the result of Q'*Q or some kind of decomposition of Q'*Q?

Is a matrix block diagonal?
Hello, How would you find whether a given symmetric matrix is block diagonalizable (under shuffling of the indices)? My matrix is very large, binary and symmetric. It is not sparse, it has ~ 10% 1s. I want to find whether some indices cluster with others, or whether the whole thing is irreducible.

block diagonal matrix
Hi all, Does anybody know what is the most efficient way to cobstruct a diagonal matrix from a vector of entries? For example I want to create: 1 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 3 from: a=1:3; "blkdiag" does not work here since I need to enter the vector elements one by one which I can't since "a" can be very large.

convert a non symmetric matrix to a square matrix
Dear all Hi Happy new year. I have a non symmetric matrix A which is (M x N) size. I want use inverse function "inv( )" for it . Is anybody help me how can I convert matrix A to a square Matrix.

construct diagonal block matrix
I want to build a diagonal matrix such as 1 2 0 0 0 0 0 0 3 4 0 0 0 0 0 0 5 6 with a given (arbitrary) matrix, 1 2 3 4 5 6 without using loops and cell arrays (conversion takes time) blkdiag works with only parameters (a,b,c,d...) a,b,c,d... are row vectors. suggestions? Tim Hi Tim, I have a solution. Let M = [1 2; 3 4; 5 6]; Then, the matrix you are looking for can be computed with the following two lines: A = [diag(M(:,1)) diag(M(:,2))]; B = A(:,reshape(reshape(1:6,3,2)',1,6)) Hope this helps, Danny "Tim Yang" <dlISCool@gmail.com> wrote in message <h0u...
