(1) We speak of A as an m × n matrix. Matrices will usually be denoted by capital letters. The element (entry) lying in the i th row and j th column is designated by a ij , the first subscript identifying its row and the second its column. Equality of matrices, zero matrix Sometimes the notation ( a ij ) is used to denote the matrix whose generic element is a ij . It is also convenient to write a ij = ( A ) ij . The matrices A and B are said to be equal if A and B have the same size and corresponding elements are equal. The zero matrix of size m × n , denoted by the symbol , is the matrix whose elements are all zero. Addition The sum of two m × n matrices A and B is defined as the matrix obtained by adding corresponding elements: A + B = ( a ij ) + ( b ij ) = ( a ij + b ij ) . (2) With this definition, it follows that matrix addition is commutative and associative, so that A + B = B + A , A +( B + C ) = ( A + B )+ C . (3) Scalar multiple, subtraction The product of a matrix A by a number (scalar) α is defined as follows: α A = α ( a ij ) = ( αa ij ) . (4) The distributive laws α ( A + B ) = α A + α B , ( α + β ) A = α A + β A (5) are satisfied. In particular, the negative of A , denoted by- A , is defined by- A = (- 1) A . Then the difference A- B of two m × n matrices is defined by A- B = A + (- B ) . Thus A- B = ( a ij )- ( b ij ) = ( a ij- b ij ) . (6) Multiplication The product AB of two matrices is defined whenever the number of columns in the first factor, A , is the same as the number of rows in the second factor, B . If A and B are m × n and n × r matrices, respectively, then the product C = AB is an m × r matrix. The element in the i th row and j th column of C is found by multiplying each element of the i th row of A by the corresponding element of the j th column of B and then adding the resulting products. In symbols, c ij = n X k =1 a ik b kj . (7) Multiplication By direct calculation, it can be shown that matrix multiplication satisfies the associative law ( AB ) C = A ( BC ) (8) and the distributive law A ( B + C ) = AB + AC . (9) However, in general, matrix multiplication is not commutative. For both products AB and BA...
