The aim of the ebook is to provide the reader a sense for the wonder and the surprises of mathematical study by means of increase step-by-step a idea of cycle matrices. The notions of matrix and cycle are offered for these readers who don't but be aware of the thoughts. Then, beginning and experimenting with cycle matrices of low dimensions and interesting the readers in a variety of actions, attractive effects are acquired with appealing geometrical interpretation. steadily the implications are prolonged to cycle matrices of upper dimensions after which generalised. A word is integrated for these readers who want to use a working laptop or computer in exploring cycle matrices. appendices supply the prospect to extra use the pc by means of exploring inverses matrices and determinants.

12. 1. 13) where p = ae+bf+cg+dh, q = ah+bg+cf+de, r = af+bh+ce+dg and s = ag+be+ch+df. 13. 14). 14. Let us now observe another particularity. When we introduced the number p by p = ae+bf+cg+dh, we had for the elements on the principal diagonal: p = ae+bf+cg+dh = bf+dh+ae+cg = cg+ae+dh+bf = dh+cg+bf+ae. In the first element, that is ae+bf+cg+dh, the part ae appears in the first place (1); in the second element, that is bf+dh+ae+cg, the part ae appears in the third place (3); in the third element, the part ae appears in the second place (2) and finally, in the fourth element, the part ae appears in the fourth place (4).

Let us analyze the situation. 3 shows the addition of two matrices of distinct cycle structures, p s r q and r p q s s q p r respectively, where p, q, r, s, a, b, c and d represent any numbers.

What particularity may be noted? Choose a matrix composed of two alternating cycles. What particularity may one observe when multiplying the matrix by itself? That is, what particularity does the square of the matrix display? 16 shows an example of the multiplication of a cycle matrix by itself. One notes that in the cycle the number -7 is repeated. 16. Let us analyze this question in general. 18. 17. 18. 19. 19. 12 and multiply pairs of these matrices. Will it be possible to note some interesting particularity of the matrices resulting from the multiplication?
