```Hi, Mathematicers,
Comparing the caluclations done by summation  and dot product of the
matrix, it turns out that they are different, which i initially
thought to be equal. what is the
equivalent summation form for the dot product??

In[29]:=
F[p_,q_,r_,s_]:=p+2q+r-s;

In[31]:=
MatF=Table[F[p,q,r,s],{p,4},{q,4},{r,4},{s,4}];

In[32]:=
c={1,2.1,3,4};

In[37]:=
c=2EMatF.c//MatrixForm

sumf[
p_, q_] := =E2=88=91r=E2=88=91s F[p, q, r, s]*c[[r]] c[[s]];

In[41]:=
Table[sumf[p,q],{p,4},{q,4}]//MatrixForm

```
