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

I have a question that I have a guess for the answer but I want to be sure

I have an identity

C=A*B

where A,B,C are matrices and in general they are not square

is there a way to find A in terms of B and C by using pseudo inverse matrix or using pseudo inverse might help me in any ways for finding A.

my guess is: 'No, pseudo matrix inverse will not help in anyway'

If pseudo inverse will not work I am planning to do a gradient search for finding the entries of A (do you have any better option?)

If possible say some words about the uniqueness problem. for given A and B, C is unique, but for given B and C, is A unique

Thanks for the help
