A nxn nonhomogeneous system of linear equations has a unique non-trivial solution if and **only if its determinant is non-zero**. If this determinant is zero, then the system has either no nontrivial solutions or an infinite number of solutions.

## Under what condition the system of homogeneous equations have non trivial solutions?

Theorem 2: A homogeneous system always has a nontrivial solution **if the number of equations is less than the number of unknowns**.

## What is the condition for trivial and non trivial solution?

Hi Goyal, Here is the answer to your question. The system of equation in which the determinant of the coefficient is zero is called non-trivial solution. And the system of equation in which the determinant of the coefficient matrix is not zero but **the solution are x=y=z=0** is called trivial solution.

## What is trivial condition?

Any number N **has four obvious factors**: ±1 and ±N. These are called “trivial factors”. Any other factor, if it exists, would be called “nontrivial”. The homogeneous matrix equation , where is a fixed matrix, is an unknown vector, and is the zero vector, has an obvious solution . This is called the “trivial solution”.

## How do you know if a solution is nontrivial?

**If the system has a solution in which not all of the x1,⋯,xn are equal to zero**, then we call this solution nontrivial . The trivial solution does not tell us much about the system, as it says that 0=0!

## What is a trivial function?

A default constructor is trivial if **it is not user**-provided and if: its class has no virtual functions (10.3) and no virtual base classes (10.1), and. no non-static data member of its class has a brace-or-equal-initializer, and. all the direct base classes of its class have trivial default constructors, and.

## Is the trivial solution unique?

A nxn homogeneous system of linear equations has a unique solution (the trivial solution) if and **only if its determinant is non-zero**. If this determinant is zero, then the system has an infinite number of solutions.

## What is a non zero solution?

Answer: A solution or example **that is not trivial**. … Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial. For example, the equation x + 5y = 0 has the trivial solution (0, 0).

## What do you mean by trivial solution?

A solution or **example that is ridiculously simple and of little interest**. Often, solutions or examples involving the number 0 are considered trivial. Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial. For example, the equation x + 5y = 0 has the trivial solution x = 0, y = 0.

## How do you find a trivial solution?

Since rank of A and rank of **(A, B) are equal**, it has trivial solution. Question 2 : Determine the values of λ for which the following system of equations x + y + 3z = 0, 4x + 3y + λz = 0, 2x + y + 2z = 0 has (i) a unique solution (ii) a non-trivial solution.

## What is trivial value?

1 **of little importance**; petty or frivolous. trivial complaints. 2 ordinary or commonplace; trite. trivial conversation. 3 (Maths) (of the solutions of a set of homogeneous equations) having zero values for all the variables.

## What is a trivial truth?

A trivial truth is **simply a tautology of logic (sometimes with equality added)**. This means that a vacuous proof can only be possible in an inconsistent theory (because contradiction entails everything) while a trivial proof is a proof that is valid because formulation of the theorem is a tautology.

## What is a non trivial problem?

The New Hacker’s Dictionary

nontrivial. Requiring real thought or significant computing power. Often used as an understated way of saying that **a problem is quite difficult or impractical**, or even entirely unsolvable (“Proving P=NP is nontrivial”).

## What is a trivial solution in differential equations?

A trivial solution is **just only the zero solution and nothing more**. In ordinary differential equations, when we way that we are looking for non-trivial solutions it just simply means any solution other than the zero solution. In your example, the trivial solution is. u(x)=0,for all x in domain of interest.

## What happens if the determinant is zero?

When the determinant of a matrix is zero, **the volume of the region with sides given by its columns or rows is zero**, which means the matrix considered as a transformation takes the basis vectors into vectors that are linearly dependent and define 0 volume.

## What is called trivial MVD?

Understanding **Trivial Functional Dependency**

A trivial functional dependency is a database dependency that occurs when you describe a functional dependency of an attribute or of a collection of attributes that includes the original attribute.
