Matrix multiplication is not commutative: in general, AB 6 = BA for most matrices A and B . Warning! Matrix multiplication does not obey the cancellation law: in general, AC = BC does not imply that A = B . Likewise, AB = AC does not imply that B = C generally. Example 1 (Exercise 1.4.4 in the text) . Let A ( , ) = 1- 1- 1 and let C = a b a b , where ,,,a,b are arbitrary scalars, such that A 6 = 0 and C 6 = 0 . Then A ( , ) C = C for any values of and . Letting A = A (0 , 1) = 1 1 and B = A (1 , 0) =...
