Transition Matrices

  1. Dec 7, 2015 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Given the 2 Matrices, find the transition matrices, Pd to c

    d =
    [ 1 1 0 ]
    [ 0 1 -1 ]
    [ 1 1 1 ]

    c=
    [ 1 0 0 ]
    [ 0 1 0 ]
    [ 0 0 1 ]



    2. Relevant equations
    Pd to c = [d] | [c]

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Pd to c = [d] | [c]

    [ 1 1 0 | 1 0 0 ]
    [ 0 1 -1 | 0 1 0 ]
    [ 1 1 1 | 0 0 1 ]

    The process of getting the transition matrix involves row reducing until we have the identity matrix on the left hand side. The right hand side will then be = the transition matrix.

    Transition matrix =

    [ 2 -1 -1 ]
    [ -1 1 1 ]
    [ -1 0 1 ]

    Just checking if I'm doing it correctly. Sorry, I should have stated this in my original post.

    Have you checked that Pd to c d = c?
