Hi,
Times[] is not Dot[] and Product[] and no equivalent to use
Dot[] instedad of Times[] and there is no (easy) way to
tell Mathematica that f[1] is a matrix and what may be A
a scalar ? a vector or a matrix too ? Even I can't find it out
and Mathematica can't know it.
You mean
DotProduct[mtx_, {i_, i1_, in_}] := Dot @@ Table[mtx, {i, i1, in}]
Phi[0] := Id;
Phi[n_] := DotProduct[Id + f[i] ** A, {i, 0, n - 1}]
and
Phi[3] gives
(Id + f[0] ** A).(Id + f[1] ** A).(Id + f[2] ** A)
Regards
Jens
