2.52.4  Solving A*X=B : simult

simult is used to solve a linear system of equations (resp. several linear systems of equations with the same matrix A) written in matrix form (see also 2.31.17) :

A*X=b (resp A*X=B)

simult takes as arguments the matrix A of the system and the column vector (i.e. a one column matrix) b of the second member of the system (resp. the matrix B whose columns are the vectors b of the second members of the different systems).
The result is a column vector, solution of the system (resp. a matrix whose columns are the solutions of the different systems).
For example, to solve the system :



3x + y=−2 
3x +2y=

input :

simult([[3,1],[3,2]],[[-2],[2]])

Output :

[[-2],[4]]

Hence x=−2 and y=4 is the solution.
Input :

simult([[3,1],[3,2]],[[-2,1],[2,2]])

Output :

[[-2,0],[4,1]]

Hence x=−2 and y=4 is the solution of



3x + y=−2 
3x +2y=

whereas x=0 and y=1 is the solution of



3x + y=
3x +2y=
