For a given square matrix A the predicted values of matrix B are:
why is the matrix C=A(A'A)^(-1)A' an idempotent and symmetric matrix? and is this matrix invertible?
Assuming (A'A) is invertible, then (A'A)-1 exists.
By the property of inverse of product of matrices,
=(A A-1) (A'-1A')
= (I) (I)
after application of associativity and the properties of inverse of matrices.
Since I is idempotent and invertible, so is C.
Equation of parabola -
