Hi all
I'm trying to display a matrix-vector multiplication in
TraditionalForm. Let A and B be undefined, and let a and b be 2x2 and
2x1 matrices respectively. If I do:
A B == a.b == N[a.b] // TraditionalForm
then I get the product AB, followed by an equality sign, followed by
the resulting 2x1 matrix, but I don't get the following equality sign
and numerical approximation of the dot product.
If I do:
A B == N[a.b] // TraditionalForm
then I do get to see the numerical approximation.
If x and y are undefined and z is set to 1/2, and I do:
x==y==N[z] // TraditionalForm
then I get what I would expect: "x=y=0.333333".
I imagine a call to Hold or similar is the answer, but I'm failing to
find a solution. I'd be very grateful if someone could explain why the
same notation applied to matrices leaves off the rightmost part of the
equation.
Best regards
Chris
