Pretty new with matlab, I'd like to know how to solve a second-degree equation of matrix : P*B0-P²*C=B1 All of the variables are 7*7 matrix, and I'm looking for P.
I get a result, but it's mainly with NaN and Inf. As it shouldn't be the case, I guess my method isn't the right one, but I've no clue how to do it, and google doesn't really help.
So I'm counting on you !
No products are associated with this question.
Unfortunately you didn't specify what you have and how you defined it but...
the function solve needs symbolic arguments, i.e., you need to create all matrices with the commands sym or syms
The values of B and C matrices should be given to you. The unkown P you could define by (e.g., 2x2 matrix)
syms p1 p2 p3 p4
P_s = sym([p1 p2; p3 p4]) B0_s = sym(B0) ...
RES = solve(P*B0-P^2*C==B1) % (without '...')
The command subs is only needed if you don't have values for the B and C matrices.
Hope this helps,
Thanks for your answer, I'm going to try it right away.
My bad, I didn't specify that I defined B0, B1 and C (Basically, withtout the command sym, just with :
B0 = [1,-0.4,0.44,0,0,0,0;0,1 ...]
So I have to define p1 until p49, and then write
That seems pretty long though ! But doable, so let's see !
Edit : my bad, I read too fast and didn't understood what sym did. I just have to rewrite P with all the baby variables inside, and change the form of the 3 know matrix with sym.
After about 45 minutes of calculation, it still didn't work :( :
>> RES = solve(P_s*B0_s-P_s^2*C_s==B1_s)

p1: [1x1 sym] p2: [1x1 sym] p3: [1x1 sym] ... p48: [1x1 sym] p49: [1x1 sym]
Et si je veux voir ce qu'il y a dans p1 :
