A 3x3 matrix is inverted as a proof-of-concept demonstration using a fiber network containing three nodes and operating at telecomm wavelength. For an NxN matrix, the overall solving time (including setting time of the matrix elements and calculation time of inversion) scales as O(N2), whereas matrix inversion by most advanced computer algorithms requires ~O(N2.37) computational time. For well-conditioned matrices, the error of the inversion performed optically is found to be around 3%, limited by the accuracy of measurement equipment.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/101848
