Matrices are a good way to store a large amount of information in an efficient manner, but the manipulation of matrices is where the real value of matrices is derived from. The most commonly used matrix manipulation techniques are as follows:
- Matrix addition
- Matrix scalar multiplication
- Matrix transposition
- Matrix multiplication
Being able to perform these actions on matrices is important as they can help with real-world data manipulation at scale. We will take a look at some of these operations, as well as practical applications of them, in the following sections.
