What are the properties of adjoint of a matrix?

How to find the adjoint of a scalar multiplication?

  • The adjoint of a scalar multiplication is equal to the product of the scalar raised to n-1 and the adjoint of the matrix, where n is the order of the matrix. Let A be a square matrix of order n, if the rank of matrix A is less than or equal to n-2, then the adjoint of matrix A results in 0.

What is an adjugate matrix?

  • Adjugate matrix is another term used to refer to the adjoint matrix in linear algebra. An adjugate matrix is especially useful in applications where an inverse matrix cannot be used directly. The adjoint of a matrix is obtained by taking the transpose of the cofactor elements of the given matrix.

How to find the determinant of adjoints?

  • determinant of adjoint A is equal to determinant of A power n-1 where A is invertible n x n square matrix. You can also take examples to verify these properties.
