Toolbox:
  • Multiplication of two matrices is defined only if the number of columns of the left matrix is the same as the number of rows of the right matrix.
  • If A is an m-by-n matrix and B is an n-by-p matrix, then their matrix product AB is the m-by-p matrix whose entries are given by dot product of the corresponding row of A and the corresponding column of B:
  • $\begin{bmatrix}AB\end{bmatrix}_{i,j} = A_{i,1}B_{1,j} + A_{i,2}B_{2,j} + A_{i,3}B_{3,j} ... A_{i,n}B_{n,j}$
$\begin{bmatrix}1\\2\\3\end{bmatrix}\begin{bmatrix}2 & 3 & 4\end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix} 1\times 2 & 1\times 3 & 1\times 4\\2\times 2 & 2\times 3 & 2\times 4\\3\times 2 & 3\times 3 & 3\times 4\end{bmatrix}$.
$\begin{bmatrix}1\\2\\3\end{bmatrix}\begin{bmatrix}2 & 3 & 4\end{bmatrix} = \begin{bmatrix}2 & 3 & 4\\4 & 6 & 8\\6 & 9 & 12\end{bmatrix}$
