In my syllabus we have the alternative definition of the condition of a matrix: kappa(A)=(text(max)_(norm(vec(y))=1) norm(A vec(y)))/(text(min)_(norm(vec(y))=1) norm(A vec(y))) In it, it also says that by definition of the condition of a matrix it follows that kappa(A^(-1))=kappa(A). So there is no explanation for this. Therefore, my question is: Why is kappa(A^(-1))=kappa(A)?

In my syllabus we have the alternative definition of the condition of a matrix:
κ ( A ) = max y = 1 A y min y = 1 A y
In it, it also says that by definition of the condition of a matrix it follows that κ ( A 1 ) = κ ( A ). So there is no explanation for this. Therefore, my question is: Why is κ ( A 1 ) = κ ( A )

First you must accept that if A 1 doesn't exist then by convention κ ( A ) =
Once you've postulated that A 1 exists, you want to show
max x = 1 A 1 x = ( min x = 1 A x ) 1 .
To see that, take a minimizer x on the right side. Let b = A x A x ; then look at A 1 b = x A x . You picked x so that among unit vectors, A x is as small as possible, so A 1 b = 1 A x is as large as possible among unit vectors b
Intuitively, if A maps x to some much smaller vector b, then A 1 maps b back to x , which is much bigger than b. Juggling the normalizations obfuscates this intuition a little bit, I think.

For an invertable matrix, your numerator and denominator are the absolute values of the largest and smallest eigenvalues. The eigenvalues of the inverse matrix are the reciprocals of its eigenvalues.
