Gauss program
Hello.
I have a big problem with writing Gauss Elimination in Java code. This is my homework, it's true. But I want to learn this, and I don't know how to bite this. I will be very gratefull if you give me some advices or hints. I must realise some points:
1) Create new class  Gauss Elimination with two attributes (table A (nxn) and table B with vector (n));
2) Add new method "eliminate" which transform matrix A and parametr vectors B ;
3) Add new method "solve" which calculate inverse substitution.
Thanks for all :)

Re: Gauss program
What have you tried?
What specific questions do you have?If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

Re: Gauss program
This is my beginning :)
Java Code:public class GaussElimination { double[][] A; double[] b; public void eliminate(double[][] A, double[] b) { </code> I have tried this code: <code> public void GaussianElim(double[][] A, double[] b) { for (i = 0; i < n; i++) { // Process row i /*  (A) Select pivot  */ pivot = A[i][i]; /*  (B) Normalize row i  */ for (j = 0; j < n; j++) A[i][j] = A[i][j]/pivot; b[i] = b[i]/pivot; /*  (C) Sweep using row i  */ for (k = 0; k < n; k++) { if ( k != i ) { factor = A[k][i]; for (j = 0; j < n; j++) A[k][j] = A[k][j]  factor*A[i][j]; b[k] = b[k]  factor*b[i]; } <
But I don't understand this loops. Where can I start? I don't understand these methods :(Last edited by Norm; 05032014 at 01:42 PM. Reason: < > changed to [ ] around code tags

The for Statement (The Java™ Tutorials > Learning the Java Language > Language Basics)
I don't know anything about Gauss, it is not a part of java. Java is a programming language that can be used to solve lots of different problems.
If you have any specific questions about java programming, post them.If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

Re: Gauss program
Note that Gaussian elimination (and Gauss/Jordan elimination) is more complicated if the pivot element (the element on the diagonal of the matrix) is zero. You need to permute the rows (or columns) to get a nonzero element in that position.
