# DrazinInverse

finds the Drazin generalized inverse of a square matrix m.

# Details and Options

• The Drazin inverse of a square matrix m is a generalized inverse that is based on the invariant subspaces of m.
• The Drazin inverse is a generalized inverse just as the MoorePenrose inverse is a generalized inverse. However, the Drazin inverse deals with invariant subspaces and relates to eigenvalue problems, solutions of differential and difference equations, etc., while the MoorePenrose inverse deals with least squares and relates to fitting problems, SVD, approximation, etc.
• can be computed as , where {t,c,n} is the list returned by . »
• The Drazin inverse satisfies the relations and . »
• The nilpotency index of a matrix is defined as the size of the largest Jordan block corresponding to the zero eigenvalue. The Drazin inverse satisfies the relation , where is the nilpotency index of m. »
• For nonsingular square matrices m, the Drazin inverse is equivalent to the standard inverse.
