Symmetric functions and the Vandermonde matrix

  title={Symmetric functions and the Vandermonde matrix},
  author={Halil Oruç and Hakan K. Akmaz},
This work deduces the lower and the upper triangular factors of the inverse of the Vandermonde matrix using symmetric functions and combinatorial identities. The L and U matrices are in turn factored as bidiagonal matrices. The elements of the upper triangular matrices in both the Vandermonde matrix and its inverse are obtained recursively. The particular… CONTINUE READING
