input matrix

A square matrix.

datatype_icon

matrix type

The type of matrix represented by input matrix. Specifying the type of input matrix can allow this node to execute more quickly by avoiding unnecessary computations, which could introduce numerical inaccuracy.

General

input matrix is a matrix that you cannot describe with one of the other categories.

Positive definite

input matrix is positive-definite.

Lower triangular

input matrix is lower triangular.

Upper triangular

input matrix is upper triangular.

Default: General

datatype_icon

determinant

The determinant of input matrix.

The determinant of a singular matrix is zero. This is a valid result and is not an error.

datatype_icon

error

A value that represents any error or warning that occurs when this node executes.
