Homework Help: Permutation matrices

  1. Sep 12, 2006 #1
    I can't proove why P inverse = P transpose always!
    P is the permuation matrix, i.e. a matrix is identity but the rows can be interchanged.
    Thanks in advance.

    I can offer no other advice than that you should just write down PP^t (the rows of P are an ******* basis of R^n - fill in the *******).
