Let the transformations S : M → M , T : N → N , have matrices A = ( a ij ) and B = ( b kl ) with respect to these bases. (a) What is the matrix of S ⊗ T with respect to the basis u i ⊗ v k of M ⊗ R N ? (b)Interpret the equations ( a ij ) ⊗ ( b kl ) = ( a ij B ) = ( Ab kl ) sometimes found in older textbooks. (a) We know that S ( u j ) = ∑ m i =1 a ij u i , and T ( v l ) = ∑ n k =1 b kl v k . Therefore, ( S ⊗ T )( u j ⊗ v l ) = m X i =1 a ij u i ! ⊗ n X k =1 b kl v k ! = m X i =1 n X k =1 a ij b kl ! ( u i ⊗ v k ) The matrix for S ⊗ T will be mn × mn , and the entry in column indexed by ( j,l ) and row indexed by ( i,k ) will be a ij b kl . (b) The equation ( a ij ) ⊗ ( b kl ) = ( a ij B ) = ( Ab kl ) just expresses the fact that the above matrix has entries a ij b kl . We illustrate below. A ⊗ B = a 11 B a 12 B ... a 21 B a 22 B . . . . . . = a 11 b 11 a 11 b 12 a 11 b 21 a 11 b 22 ··· a 12 b 11 a 12 b 12 a 12 b 21 a 12 b 22 ··· . . . . . . a 21 b 11 a 21 b 12 a 21 b 21 a 21 b 22 ··· . . . . . . . . . ∼ = Ab 11 Ab 12 ...
