Unformatted text preview: MA 265 LECTURE NOTES: MONDAY, JANUARY 14 Matrix Multiplication Dot Product. Recall that a 2-vector or a 3-vector are matrices in the form x y or x y z , respectively. In general, we say that an n-vector is a matrix in the form x = x 1 x 2 . . . x n . The collection of all n-vectors will be denoted by R n . Define the dot product or inner product of two n-vectors as follows: a = a 1 a 2 . . . a n , b = b 1 b 2 . . . b n = a b = a 1 b 1 + a 2 b 2 + + a n b n . We can use shorthand notation to write this. Define summation notation as follows: x 1 + x 2 + + x n = n X k =1 x k . Hence the dot product is a = a k , b = b k = a b = n X k =1 a k b k . Example. Consider the following 4-vectors: u = 1- 2 3 4 and v = 2 3- 2 1 ....
