While trying real easy Calculations with mathematica 5 on solaris I encountered difficulties finding the right syntax: Here I try solve some equations and write the four resulting variables a,b,c,d into a new matrix T: s = Solve[{u1 == a v1 + b v2, u2 == c v1 + d v2}, {a, b, c, d}]; a = (a /. s)[[1]]; b = (b /. s)[[1]]; c = (c /. s)[[1]]; d = (d /. s)[[1]]; T = {{a, c}, {b, d}}; I'm sure this could be done easier, but I dont know how? thanks!
