I'd like to invert a matrix whose dimensions are specified only
symbolically, but I'm not sure how to represent it in Mathematica (or if
Mathematica can do it). The matrix is:
a b b^2 ... b^k
b a b ... b^(k-1)
b^2 b a ... b^(k-2)
b^k b^(k-1) ... a
I tried representing this matrix as a list, using symbols in Table, but
Mathematica won't evaluate the bounds when they are symbolic. Is there a way
to do this?
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!!!
