Matrix Inversion: LAPACK Computational Routines

It is seldom necessary to compute an explicit inverse of a matrix. In particular, do not attempt to solve a system of equations
Ax
=
b
by first computing
A
-1
and then forming the matrix-vector product
x
=
A
-1
b
. Call a solver routine instead (see Routines for Solving Systems of Linear Equations); this is more efficient and more accurate.
However, matrix inversion routines are provided for the rare occasions when an explicit inverse matrix is needed.
