Numerical and Symbolic Matrix Product

Description

Multiplies two numeric or character matrices, if they are conformable. If one argument is a vector, it will be promoted to either a row or column matrix to make the two arguments conformable. If both are vectors of the same length, it will return the inner product (as a matrix).

Usage

mx(x, y)

x %mx% y

Arguments

x

numeric or character matrix.

y

numeric or character matrix.

Value

matrix.
