The residuals are each index (AI) where I is an identity matrix. matrix A's components are 1 at the diagonals and 0 at nondiagonal elements. for example A^30 or A^30 is still have 1 at the diagonals and 0 at nondiagonals. However when I subtract A from I, the results is not all zeros as I expect it to be! they are around 10^15 to 10^16. I can't use int16(eye(N)) because I can't subtract it later from A. Does anyone know how I can creat an Identity matrix that has zero/1 elements up to the power of 30?!
Can you post an explicit example? Not really sure what you are asking. It sounds like simple floating point arithmetic errors from your description.
