Example text

That is, what particularity does the square of the matrix display? 16 shows an example of the multiplication of a cycle matrix by itself. One notes that in the cycle the number -7 is repeated. 16. Let us analyze this question in general. 18. 17. 18. 19. 19. 12 and multiply pairs of these matrices. Will it be possible to note some interesting particularity of the matrices resulting from the multiplication? If yes, experiment with some pairs and try to prove a general result. The question formulated in the last activity will be the theme to be analyzed in the following chapter.

Surprisingly, the matrices resulting from the two multiplications are equal. They also present the same cyclic structure as the two initial matrices. Is this an exceptional case? 4). 4. Once more, the matrices resulting from the two multiplications are equal and display the same structure as the two initial matrices. It appears that the moment to analyze the general case has come. Alternating Cycle Matrices of Dimensions 4 by 4. 5), where p, q, r, s, t, u, v, and w are any numbers. p s r q r p q s s q p r q r s p x t w v u v t u w w u t v u v w t = ?

2e). Negative Alternating Cycle Matrices of Dimensions 6 by 6 47 By consequence, we can conclude that, like we had seen in the case of cycle matrices of dimensions 4 by 4, each of the six numbers appears exactly once in each row and once in each column. The considered matrix is a Latin square and the sum of the numbers in each row and in each column is constant (= 19). 3b). Will all matrices thus constructed be Latin squares? Let a, b, c, d, e, and f be any six numbers. 4 illustrates. 4. The sum of the numbers in each row and in each column is equal to a+b+c+d+e+f.
