If there is no confusion, we simply write Á , deleting the subscript denoting the dimension. The inverse of a square matrix Ì µ ½ . A matrix is denoted by ½ . We also use Ì to denote ´ ½ µÌ ´ Ì Ñ is called a symmetric matrix. If a matrix ¾ Ê ¢Ò with Ñ Ò satisfying Ì satisfies ÁÒ , it is called an orthogonal matrix. 1) Define ´ · Ì µ ¾. Then, we have ÜÌ Ü ÜÌ Ü. Thus it is assumed without loss of generality that is symmetric in defining a quadratic form. If ÜÌ Ü ¼ Ü ¼, then is positive definite, and is written as ¼.

41) It therefore follows that any row vector of À below the ´Ð ·½µth row can be expressed in terms of a linear combination of the Ð preceding row vectors, and hence in terms of linearly independent first Ð row vectors. 40). 40) holds. Then, all the rows (columns) of À are expressed in terms of linear combinations of the first Ö rows (columns). Thus all the minors of À whose orders are greater than Ö are zero, and À has rank Ö at most. 40) is satisfied with a smaller value of Ö. This contradicts the second condition of the lemma.
