On mankind’s final challenge to the moon, a killer comes alongside for the ride.
Since the 1st manned spaceflight in 1944, NASA has conquered the outer surroundings, explored Mars, and positioned nuclear missiles at the moon. yet investment for interstellar adventures—military or otherwise—has dried up. Now, NASA is making plans a last lunar challenge to close up the remnants of man’s first extraterrestrial colony. The nuclear missiles are supposed to be shot into the sunlight, yet somebody onboard the USS Conestoga would like to work out them fired towards Earth.
The evening sooner than the venture release, one of many astronauts is abducted from his resort room and changed with a surgically altered physique double. by the point the opposite astronauts discover the deception, the Conestoga is just too faraway from domestic for NASA to assist. at the floor of the Moon, a decades-old conspiracy has reached its ultimate level, and Earth’s destiny hangs within the stability.

2) If, for example, i1(s) = 1, then m11 = m12 = … =m 1q = 0. 1. 1) is called elementary divisor of the matrix A(s). 3) are (s+2) and (s+2, 5). The elementary divisors of a polynomial matrix are uniquely determined. This follows immediately from the uniqueness of the invariant polynomial of polynomial matrices. Equivalent polynomial matrices possess the same elementary divisors. For a polynomial matrix of known dimensions its rank together with its elementary divisors uniquely determine its Smith canonical form.
M), where q1i(s), qj1(s) are the quotients and r1i(s), rj1(s) are the remainders of division of a 1i(s) and a j1(s) by a 11(s), respectively. Subtracting from the j-th row (i-th column) the first row (column) multiplied by qj1(s) (by q 1i(s)), we replace the entry a j1(s) ( a 1i(s)) by the remainder rj1(s) (r1i(s)). Next, among these remainders we find a polynomial of the lowest degree with respect to s and interchanging rows and columns, we move it to the position (1,1). We denote this polynomial by r 11(s).
