I am getting all singular matrices in my research on the quantization of one-dimensional space.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I think this is the proper place for me to ask all mathematicians the disadvantage of singular matrix.

I know that singular matrix does not have an inverse since its determinant is zero and hence a metric cannot be defined.

What is the parctical use of a metric besides giving a "distance?"

Zero metric can also mean zero mass in physics. But if all masses are zeros, where do the experimentally determined masses come from?
