Dear Sir,
As a beginning user, I find a mistake of Mathematic 4.0(/3.0 for student).
That is about the multipy method of matrix.
For example, as I input the two matrices:
A={a[1, 1], a[1, 2], a[1, 3], a[1, 4], a[1, 5]}
{a[2, 1], a[2, 2], a[2, 3], a[2, 4], a[2, 5]}
{a[3, 1], a[3, 2], a[3, 3], a[3, 4], a[3, 5]}
{a[4, 1], a[4, 2], a[4, 3], a[4, 4], a[4, 5]}
{a[5, 1], a[5, 2], a[5, 3], a[5, 4], a[5, 5]},
B={{b[1, 1], b[1, 2], b[1, 3], b[1, 4], b[1, 5]},
{b[2, 1], b[2, 2], b[2, 3], b[2, 4], b[2, 5]},
{b[3, 1], b[3, 2], b[3, 3], b[3, 4], b[3, 5]},
{b[4, 1], b[4, 2], b[4, 3], b[4, 4], b[4, 5]},
{b[5, 1], b[5, 2], b[5, 3], b[5, 4], b[5, 5]}},
then calculate the result of A B. The mathematics gives the following
result:
A B={{a[1, 1] b[1, 1], a[1, 2] b[1, 2], a[1, 3] b[1, 3],
a[1, 4] b[1, 4], a[1, 5] b[1, 5]},
{a[2, 1] b[2, 1], a[2, 2] b[2, 2], a[2, 3] b[2, 3],
a[2, 4] b[2, 4], a[2, 5] b[2, 5]},
{a[3, 1] b[3, 1], a[3, 2] b[3, 2], a[3, 3] b[3, 3],
a[3, 4] b[3, 4], a[3, 5] b[3, 5]},
{a[4, 1] b[4, 1], a[4, 2] b[4, 2], a[4, 3] b[4, 3],
a[4, 4] b[4, 4], a[4, 5] b[4, 5]},
{a[5, 1] b[5, 1], a[5, 2] b[5, 2], a[5, 3] b[5, 3],
a[5, 4] b[5, 4], a[5, 5] b[5, 5]}}.
As all knows, this is not correct. I think it is terrible.
Do you think so? How can improve it?
Looking forward to receiving the reply.
