Put in other words Is $rank(M)$ related to $rank(M_{x_{1}\rightarrow\infty})$ Does anyone know the answer to this question or know of a text/source that does have the answer? Thank you May 22nd, 2016, 01:57 AM #2 Senior Member   Joined: Aug 2012 Posts: 229 Thanks: 3 Hey AdemH. If your function is indeed a linear one then the matrix itself should remain static. You usually apply an operator (including a matrix) to a vector of values and evaluate it. The matrix and its properties are usually static and therefore don't change even if the mapping does as a function of its inputs.
