Operating on vectors and matrices requires numerical algorithms. An m × n matrix is an array of mn real numbers: A = a 11 a 12 ··· a 1 n a 21 a 22 ··· a 2 n . . . . . . . . . a m 1 a m 2 ··· a mn A is said to have n columns and m rows . Jeff Linderoth (Lehigh University) IE170:Lecture 27 Lecture Notes 3 / 35 More Stuff You Know An n-dimensional column vector is a matrix with one column. An n-dimensional row vector is a matrix with one row . By default, a vector will be considered a column vector The set of all n-dimensional vectors will be denoted R n ....
