Description

This function returns TRUE is the matrix argument is non-singular and FALSE otherwise.

Usage

1
is.non.singular.matrix(x, tol = 1e-08)

Arguments

x

a numeric square matrix

tol

a numeric tolerance level usually left out

Details

The determinant of the matrix x is first computed. If the absolute value of the determinant is greater than or equal to the given tolerance level, then a TRUE value is returned. Otherwise, a FALSE value is returned.
