Well conditioned matrices

  1. Jan 29, 2007 #1
    this is more of a numerical analysis question..so im not sure where to post it..(also put it up in the computers forum)

    im wondering, ive seen examples of ill conditioned matrices with small determinants...but what would be an example of a well conditioned matrix with a very small determinant?

    I've deleted your other posts and issued you a 1-point warning for posting multiple copies of the same question. Do no multiple-post. That is not allowed here on the Physics Forums (PF), or on any other forum system that I'm aware of. I'll leave this one thread here, since it seems like the best match so far for your question.
