Weighted Moore-Penrose inverse

Filed under: mathematics — Tags: — sandokan65 @ 15:13

This is a generalization of the original concept of Moore-Penrose inverse (MPI). The weighted MPI A^{+(N,M)} of a matrix A \in {\Bbb F}^{n\times m} is defined by the following four properties:

  • (A): A \cdot A^{+(N,M)} \cdot A = A,
  • (B): A^{+(N,M)} \cdot A \cdot A^{+(N,M)} = A^{+(N,M)},
  • (C)_N: (M \cdot A \cdot A^{+(N,M)})^c  = M \cdot A \cdot A^{+(N,M)},
  • (D)_M: (A^{+(N,M)}\cdot A \cdot N)^c  = A^{+(N,M)}\cdot A \cdot N.

where the weighting matrices M and N are of the orders n\times n and m\times m.

When weighting matrices are equal to the corresponding identities, the above definition reduces to ordinary MPI A^c.
