Abstract

Recall the inhomogeneous system (I) of k linear equations in n unknowns, which we studied in Chapter 4.4. We consider the case k = n, where the number of equations to be solved equals the number of unknowns, and we shall use our results about bases in ℝ n in the preceding chapter to study the question of existence and uniqueness of solutions of the system (I).
