The aim of this paper is to present the structure of a class of matrices that enables explicit inverse to be obtained. Starting from an already known class of matrices, we construct a Hadamard product that derives the class under consideration. The latter are defined by 4 𝑛 2 parameters, analytic expressions of which provide the elements of the lower Hessenberg form inverse. Recursion formulae of these expressions reduce the arithmetic operations in evaluating the inverse to 𝒪 ( 𝑛 2 ) .
