Precision problem with matrix inversion

RE: Precision problem with matrix inversion
FYI, I have eventually checked from inside CAS.
Code: a:=[[130.2544e9,34.4351e9,17.1192e9,10.4385e9], If you do linear algebra, I would recomment to be inside CAS, because except for a few operations (matrix * and inverse, perhaps a few more, Cyrille could confirm), HOME matrices are converted to CAS matrices and giac algorithms are called. The constraints for Cyrille inside HOME (perhaps for learning apps like the linear system solver with HOME approx data but expecting exact results at the end) are not the same as for giac inside the CAS where the user is expected to understand the underlying maths, rounding to 0 for example might explain wrong results. Since RPN users are probably mastering the maths, the conclusion is perhaps that it would be a good idea to support RPN inside CAS.
