predicted B=A(A'A)^(-1)A'B

why is the matrix C=A(A'A)^(-1)A' an idempotent and symmetric matrix? and is this matrix invertible?

**MathMate**, Wednesday, September 8, 2010 at 11:26amAssuming (A'A) is invertible, then (A'A)

^{-1}exists.

A(A'A)^{-1}A'

By the property of inverse of product of matrices,

(A'A)^{-1}

=A^{-1}A'^{-1}

Therefore

C=A(A'A)^{-1}A'

=A(A^{-1}A'^{-1})A'

=(A A^{-1}) (A'^{-1}A')

= (I) (I)

=I

after application of associativity and the properties of inverse of matrices.

Since I is idempotent and invertible, so is C.
