106) As pointed out previously, this equation contains three scalar equations that are not independent. An alternative approach to formulate the parallelism condition of the two vectors ai and aj is to use two independent dot product equations. To demonstrate this, we form the orthogonal triad ai , ai1 , and ai2 , defined on body i as shown in Fig. 2. 107) These are two independent scalar equations that can be used instead of using the three dependent scalar equations of the cross product. For a given nonzero vector ai , a simple computer procedure can be used to determine the vectors ai1 and ai2 such that ai , ai1 , and ai2 form an orthogonal triad.

109) To demonstrate this simple procedure, consider the vector ai defined as a = [1 0 − 3]T . The element of ai that has the largest absolute value is the third element. Therefore, the vector ad is defined as ad = [1 1 0]T . 5 0 1 −3 SOLUTION OF ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS The method of finding the inverse can be utilized in solving a system of n algebraic equations in n unknowns. 5 SOLUTION OF ALGEBRAIC EQUATIONS ⎫ a11 x1 + a12 x2 + · · · + a1n xn = b1 ⎪ ⎪ ⎪ ⎪ a21 x1 + a22 x2 + · · · + a2n xn = b2 ⎬ ..

The minor Mij corresponding to the element aij is the determinant formed by deleting the i th row and j th column from the original determinant |A|. 16) Using this definition, the value of the determinant in Eq. 17) j =1 Clearly, the cofactors Cij are determinants of order n − 1. 19) 28 LINEAR ALGEBRA According to the definition of Eq. 25) and the determinant of a diagonal matrix is equal to the product of the diagonal elements.
