skew-symmetric matrix

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Let A be the square matrix [aij]. Then the matrix A is skew-symmetric if AT=−A (see transpose); that is to say, if aij=−aji for all i and j. It follows that in a skew-symmetric matrix the entries in the main diagonal are all zero: aii=0 for all i.
