A matrix is a rectangle array of numbers An m x n matrix has m rows and n columns (of order m x n) An 1 x n matrix is called a row vector An n x 1 matrix is called a column vector A matrix is usually denoted by a uppercase boldface letter A vector is usually denoted by a lowercase boldface letter An m x n matrix is given by where a ij , i=1 ,..., m ; j=1 ,..., n is the ( i , j )‐th element of matrix A . m n m m n n ij a a a a a a a a a a 2 1 2 22 21 1 12 11 A ECMT1020: Chapter 3 6 Examples A 2x3 matrix A row vector of length 4 A column vector of length 2 7 2 4 5 2 3 9 2 4 5 1 3 y x A ECMT1020: Chapter 3 7 A real Application Student enrolment to a first year business statistics unit The data can be presented by a 4 x 3 matrix X Year Year 1 students Year 2 students Year 3 students 2006 726 85 35 2007 951 91 29 2008 1050 125 50 2009 1209 145 68 68 145 1209 50 125 1050 29 91 951 35 85 726 X ECMT1020: Chapter 3 8 More Matrices Zero matrix , denoted by , is an m x n matrix whose elements are all zero Square matrix is an m x m matrix Symmetric matrix is a square matrix where a ij = a ji for all i , j . Note: i = row index, j = column index Diagonal matrix is a square matrix whose off‐diagonal elements are zero, i.e. a ij = 0 for all i ≠ j Identity matrix , denoted by I , is a diagonal matrix whose diagonal elements are one and off‐diagonal elements are zero, i.e.elements are zero, i....
