Example A = 1- 5 7 0 1 / 2- 1 3 , B =   3 7 6 . 8 2 . 3 1 2 √ 2   . Albert Ku (HKUST) MATH 006 3 / 15 Matrices Some Definitions Definition Each number in a matrix is called an element of the matrix. If a matrix has m rows and n columns, it is called an m × n matrix . A matrix with n rows and n columns is called a square matrix of order n . The position of an element in a matrix is given by the row and the column containing the element. The element on the i th row and j th column is denoted by a ij . The principal diagonal of a matrix A consists of the element a 11 , a 22 , a 33 , . . . .
