Factoring 2x2 Matrices with Determinant of ±1
MetadataShow full item record
We examine properties of multiplying and factoring 2×2 matrices to prove that there exist two generators to which all other 2×2 matrices factor. We prove that all matrices fitting out specifications must have a dominant column and can be factored uniquely to a product of our two generators.
