Re: Why does Inverse[M] hesitate?


The Inverse function sometimes calculates the inverse of a matrix
immediately, sometimes it does not. Try this example in Mathematica
5.1:

A={{(1-g)-1,1},{-w P(1-g)/C,-1}}//MatrixForm
B={{0},{-P(w+1)}}//MatrixForm

I get 
Out: Inverse[(expanded A)].(expanded B)

If I do just 
A={{a,b},{c,d}}
B={{e},{f}}
Inverse[A].B 

I get the final correct result.
