# Function Srad; Function Cond - HP 49g+ User Manual

Graphing calculator.

Function SRAD determines the Spectral RADius of a matrix, defined as the
largest of the absolute values of its eigenvalues. For example,
Definition of eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix
The eigenvalues of a square matrix result from the matrix equation A⋅x = λ⋅x.
The values of λ that satisfy the equation are known as the eigenvalues of the
matrix A. The values of x that result from the equation for each value of l are
known as the eigenvectors of the matrix. Further details on calculating
eigenvalues and eigenvectors are presented later in the chapter.

### Function COND

Function COND determines the condition number of a matrix. Examples,
Condition number of a matrix
The condition number of a square non-singular matrix is defined as the
product of the matrix norm times the norm of its inverse, i.e.,
-1
cond(A) = ||A||×||A
||. We will choose as the matrix norm, ||A||, the
maximum of its row norm (RNRM) and column norm (CNRM), while the norm
-1
of the inverse, ||A
||, will be selected as the minimum of its row norm and
-1
column norm. Thus, ||A|| = max(RNRM(A),CNRM(A)), and ||A
|| =
-1
-1
min(RNRM(A
), CNRM(A
)).
