## What is the difference between trivial and nontrivial solution?

A solution or example that is not trivial. Often, solutions or examples involving the number zero are considered trivial. Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial. For example, the equation x + 5y = 0 has the trivial solution (0, 0).

**What does it mean to have only the trivial solution?**

The trivial solution means that all the variables are zero (i.e. the solution is the zero vector). If the system is homogeneous and it has a unique solution, it will always be the zero solution.

**Does trivial solution mean one solution?**

Definition. A vector is called trivial if all its coordinates are 0, i. e. if it is the zero vector. In Linear Algebra we are not interested in only finding one solution to a system of linear equations. Paradoxically, it’s actually the case where the trivial solution is the only possible one that is the most important.

### What does it mean if something is trivial?

trivial \TRIV-ee-ul\ adjective. 1 a : of little worth or importance. b : relating to or being the mathematically simplest case; specifically : characterized by having all variables equal to zero. 2 : commonplace, ordinary.

**What does it mean when a system has a nontrivial solution?**

Theorem 1: A nontrivial solution of exists iff [if and only if] the system has Р$С at least one free variable in row echelon form. The same is true for any homogeneous system of equations. If there are no free variables, there is only one solution and that. Proof: must be the trivial solution.

**What is little or less importance or value?**

Kids Definition of inferior 2 : of little or less importance, value, or merit He always felt inferior to his brother.

#### How do you use trivial?

Trivial sentence example

- It might be trivial , but it was an integral part of their marriage.
- She asked me about something trivial and I said I didn’t know.
- It was utterly ridiculous to cry about something so trivial , and yet it felt good.
- But fewer came to see me on trivial business.

**For what value of A does the system has nontrivial solutions?**

In summary, the system has nontrivial solutions exactly when a=−1.

**What is the difference between trivial and nontrivial solutions?**

Often, solutions or examples involving the number zero are considered trivial. Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial. For example, the equation x + 5y = 0 has the trivial solution (0, 0).

## What is a ‘trivial program’?

It can be buggy or not, but it’s small and simple. Can we give any meaning to the idea of a “trivial program” or is it merely an excuse for sloppyness? “Trivial” typically refers to an implementation that demonstrates the relevant functionality and no more, though there is no hard-and-fast rule.

**What is the difference between trivial group and trivial vector bundle?**

But the term trivial solution is reserved exclusively for for the solution consisting of zero values for all the variables. There are similar trivial things in other topics. Trivial group is one that consists of just one element, the identity element. Trivial vector bundle is actual product with vector space…

**What is an example of a trivial problem?**

It’s a rather open-ended question. Trivial could be software in which the amount of time required to fix the problem would cost more than any kind of workaround for it. Another example would be a small utility that has one of the bugs you mention, but since it is easily replaceable by another utility that does the same thing, it gets ignored.
