Try
Q[w_] := SparseArray[{i_, j_} /; Abs[i - j] <= 1 -> Which[i < j, a[i -
1]*(1 - (i - 1)/(2*w)), i > j,
(a[-i + 2*w + 1]*(i - 1))/(2*w), i == j, (-(1 - (i -
1)/(2*w)))*a[i - 1] - (a[-i + 2*w + 1]*(i - 1))/(2*w) + 1], {2*w, 2*w}]
dum = Q[2]
SparseArray[<\[InvisibleSpace]10\[InvisibleSpace]>,{4,4}]
Here is dum
MatrixForm[dum]
Here is its inverse
Inverse[dum]
the transpose
Transpose[dum]
SparseArray[<\[InvisibleSpace]10\[InvisibleSpace]>,{4,4}]
MatrixForm[%]
and so on...
Regards
Dimitris
