Subclasses of generalized inverses of matrices

  • Masaaki Sibuya


Structure of allg-inverses of a matrix in a weak sense is shown. Characterizations of main subclasses ofg-inverses are investigated thoroughly. The dualities among subclasses and the relation betweeng-inverses and projections are stressed. The Gauss-Markov theorem reduces to a duality of two types ofg-inverses
