### Matrix-Vector ProductsObservation

Matrix-vector products are only dened when the sizes of the matrix and vector are compatible { the number of components of the vectorxmust equal the number ofcolumnsof the matrix. The result will be a vector with as many components as the number of rowsof the matrix.Remark Later, we will interpret matrix-vector products as describing a special kind of transformation, called alinear transformation. In particular, anmnmatrix acts on ann-vectorx2Rnto produce anm-vectorAx2Rm, so we can describe a certain kind of map of vectors fromRntoRm. Ifn=m, these linear transformations allow us to describe geometric transformations of space, such as rotations and re ections, as well as other more general maps of n-vectors.A.
