Rookie question but can't seem to figure it out. If I have a 2x1 vector,
a={b,c}, and I want to multiply it by a 2x1 (transpose) d={e,f}, I should get a 2x2 matrix. However, in MM, a d yields a 2x1 vector {b e,c f}. MM gives an
error message if I try to transpose a or d, and Wolfram (p 114-115) doesn't
seem to answer my question.

How can I get {2x1} {2x1}T = {2x2} ?
I'm going nuts here.
