Tool to calculate matrix product algebra. The matrix product consists of the multiplication of matrices.

Answers to Questions

How to multiply 2 matrices?

Consider \( M_1=[a_{ij}] \) a matrix of \( m \) lines and \( n \) columns and \( M_2=[b_{ij}] \) a matrix of \( n \) lines and \( p \) columns. The matrix product \( M_1.M_2 = [c_{ij}] \) is a matrix of \( m \) lines and \( p \) columns, with: $$ \forall i, j : c_{ij} = \sum_{k=1}^n a_{ik}b_{kj} $$

The order of the operands matters with matrix computations, so $$ M_1.M_2 \neq M_2.M_1 $$

How to multiply a matrix by a scalar?

The product of the matrix \( M=[a_{ij}] \) by a scalar \( \lambda \) is a matrix of the same size than the initial matrix M, with each items of the matrix multiplied by \( \lambda \). $$ \lambda M = [ \lambda a_{ij} ] $$

What are matrix multiplication properties?

Associativity : $$ A \times (B \times C) = (A \times B) \times C $$

Distributivity : $$ A \times (B + C) = A \times B + A \times C $$

$$ (A + B) \times C = A \times C + B \times C $$

$$ \lambda (A \times B) = (\lambda A) \times B = A \times (\lambda B) $$

How to multiply 2 matrices of incompatible shapes?

There is a matrix product compatible with any matrix sizes: the Kronecker product.
