2 Q: about matrix

hi all

i need to determine the center of an given matrix nxn
if n is odd, no problem
but if n is even, there are ambiguous.

what about the following procedure true
center=n/2

is this logical ??


another question about matrix
what's the types of matrix?, and when they should be used?.

thanx in advance

I can't say. That idea would pick the matrix right in the center. One problem is that for n is odd you will always be picking a 1 X 1 matrix or essentially a scalar. While for n is even the central matrix would get larger and larger.Maybe, if you post what you are trying to do, we could get an idea.

There are lots of types, all given names. Hermitian, banded , identity, singular, invertible, similar, upper triangular, lower triangular, sparse,strassen, characteristic, auxiliary, adjacent,stochastic, regular, absorbing...

They are used to get eigenvalues, roots of polynomials, solve simultaneous sets of equations, multiply polynomials and numbers quickly, solve probability problems, represent networks, solve clique problems and hundreds more. You might have to be more specific as each of these is a whole field by itself.
