Mr. Tamura, I suspect that the problem comes from the way you've defined the matrices. For example, this defines two 3x1 matrices and displays them as column vectors in MatrixForm: a={{1},{2},{3}}; b={{2},{3},{4}}; a//MatrixForm b//MatrixForm Or you could use a={{1,2,3}}//Transpose; b={{2,3,4}}//Transpose; Now, enter c=a.Transpose[b] c//MatrixForm to get the 3x3 product.
