HP50G : TRN vs TRAN
What is the difference between TRN and TRAN transposecommands on the HP50G?
Thanks for your clues. Regards, Gil

RE: HP50G : TRN vs TRAN
Both return the transpose of a matrix when dealing with real numbers.
When dealing with complex matrices, TRAN just return the transpose whereas TRN returns the conjugate transpose. See pages 3255 and 3258 of the AUR. There are only 10 types of people in this world. Those who understand binary and those who don't.

Perhaps it has to do with the fact that originally all matrix operations were directly taken from the ones already implemented in Saturn assembly language for the HP71B Math ROM and there the conjugate transpose was named TRN. Also, for complex matrices the conjugate transpose is by far the most useful operation as compared with just the transpose alone, which almost never appears in any algorithm or reallife application.

Thanks.
I have got only the books for the HP48. Lost the reference books relative to the HP50G? Regards and thanks. Gil

RE: HP50G : TRN vs TRAN
Strange that the instruction TRN, which includes the conjugateoperation, is from 5 to 10% faster than the "simpler" TRAN command.
