Non-square matrices ("m"-by-"n" matrices for which "m ≠ n") do not have an inverse.

However, in some cases such a matrix may have a left inverse or right inverse.

The conditions for existence of left-inverse resp. right-inverse are more complicated since a notion of rank does not exist over rings.

Some of the properties of inverse matrices are shared by Moore–Penrose pseudoinverses, which can be defined for any "m"-by-"n" matrix.

Current radar imaging techniques rely mainly on synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and inverse synthetic aperture radar (ISAR) imaging.

"stiffness", or its inverse the "compliance", of the fixture can be adjusted.

Since the interaction of graphene with an electromagnetic field is surprisingly strong for a one-atom-thick material, the Casimir effect is of growing interest.
The related van der Waals force (or dispersion force) is also unusual, obeying an inverse cubic, asymptotic power law in contrast to the usual inverse quartic.

The proof of the Cauchy integral formula is the same as in one complex variable and makes use of the fact that each non-zero vector "x" in euclidean space has a multiplicative inverse in the Clifford algebra, namely
Up to a sign this inverse is the Kelvin inverse of "x".

However "G" is not the complete inverse limit but rather the subgroup in which each generator appears only finitely many times.

An example of an element of the inverse limit which is not an element of "G" is an infinite commutator.

is just the inverse of the operator acting on ψ("x") in the Dirac equation.

I think it is necessary to have this in mind also when the inverse theory is developed.

The Kolsky Model is used extensively in seismic inverse Q-filtering.

It would be rather straightforward if we consider it as an inverse problem of the inverse equation and take an inverse solution.

But solving an inverse problem is often time-consuming because it involves the computation of an inverse matrix.
