Hi PF!(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Just want to make sure I'm not crazy: if we're solving a system ##K a = \sigma^2 M a## where ##K## and ##M## are ##n\times n## matrices, ##a## an ##n\times 1## vector and ##\sigma## a scalar, then ##a## is unnecessary, and all we really need to solve is ##K=\sigma^2 M##, right?
