gives the inverse of a square matrix m.
  • Inverse works on both symbolic and numerical matrices.
  • For matrices with approximate real or complex numbers, the inverse is generated to the maximum possible precision given the input. A warning is given for ill-conditioned matrices.
  • Inverse[m, ZeroTest->test] evaluates test[m[[i, j]]] to determine whether matrix elements are zero. The default setting is ZeroTest->(#0&).
