## Function that diagonalises a 2x2 complex...

Maple

Given a 2x2 matrix I am struggling to write a function that would return a list (a,b, a1, a2) of 2 complex numbers followed by 2 vectors such that the set of the 2 vectors is a basis for CxC and also Ab1=ab1, Ab2=Bb2 if these exist

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated

## Error in writing own function...

Maple

M:= Matrix ([[a,b], [c,d]])

If a.d-b.c=0 then print (Matrix(2)); else print (Matrix ([[(d/a.d-b.c), (-b/a.d-b.c)], [-c/a.d-b.c, a/a.d-b.c]]); end if;

I don't understand where I have gone wrong. If anybody could help I would be greatly appreciative

Thank you

## Matrix problem help...

Maple 17

Write a procedure which inverts a given 2x2 matrix ie
Given a list of 4 numbers (a,b,c,d) return numbers (x,yz,w) such that
Matrix(a,b,c,d)(Matrix(x,y,z,w)) =Identity matrix

## Difficult function...

Maple 17

I need help writing a function which takes a number of integers (which are greater than or equal to 2) and returns a list where the nth entry in the list is given by the number of arguments which can be expressed in the form of x^n where x is an integer. The function must also disregard all of the terms after the final integer greater than 0 is produced ie does not show 0, 0, 0, 0, at the end of the list.

Eg if f was the function f(27) = [1,0,1]

f(2,3,4,9,81,1024) = [6,4,0,1,1,0,0,0,0,1]

## Function to determine non-parallel lines...

Maple

I can't seem to find what's wrong with this function:

F:= x-> (-c-ax)/b;
G:=x-> (-d-ex)/f;
If -a/b = -e/f then print (false) else print (true); end if;
