Notation Fundamentals
Definition. A matrix is defined as an ordered array
of numbers, of dimensions p, q . Our standard
notation for a matrix A of order p, q will be:
p Aq

Inverse of a Square Matrix
For an N N square matrix A, the inverse of A,
A 1, exists if and only if A is of full rank, i.e., if
and only if no column of A is a linear combination
of the others. A 1 is
Random Vectors and Random Matrices
In this section, we extend our results on linear
combinations of variables to random vector
notation. The generalization is straightforward.

Matrix Multiplication
Matrix multiplication is an operation with
properties quite different from its scalar
counterpart.
To begin with, order matters in matrix
multiplication. That is, the matrix prod
