    I am using the PseudoInverse[] function to try to get some analytic
expressions for the solution to a relatively complex system of
equations.  The mechanics of it works fine the problem that I run into
is in the output.  I have a matrix equation of the form A.B=C and I I
can solve for B by premultiplying both sides by the inverse of A (in
this case the pseudoInverse).  My problem is that all of the elements of
A are simply numbers and the PseudoInverse returns an expression that
has a lot of Conjugate[] terms in it.  Is there any way to force
Mathematica to recognize that Conjugate[x] is simply x for all the terms
other than setting a replacement rule for each term individually?
Thank you,
Mark Storch
