Now, let's discuss a further question as follows:

Determine the affine transformation relationship between the
coordinates of two sets of points in n-dimensional space.

For this purpose, I've provided the following example data in
4-dimensional space:

? A=[ -x, x, x+1, x, x, x; -y, y+1/6, y, y+1, y, y; -z-t, -t, z, z,
z+1, z; t, z+t, t, t, t, t+1 ];
? B=[ -x, x+2/3, x+1, x, x, x; -y, y+1/6, y, y+1, y, y; -z-t, -t, z,
z, z+1, z; t, z+t, t, t, t, t+1 ];

They represent two sets of points in 4-dimensional space, with 6
points in each set. Furthermore, I've known that these two set of
points can be connected by an affine transformation matrix, such as
following one:

? afftran=[ -1, -2, 0, 0, 0; 1, 1, 0, 0, -1/3; 0, 0, 0, 1, 0; 0, 0, 1,
0, 0; 0, 0, 0, 0, 1 ];

Now, the question is: how to determine such matrices from scratch only
based on the above two sets of points?
