In the last chapter we saw that a linear transformation T : ℝ3 → ℝ3 could be represented (that is, was completely determined by) 9 numbers arranged in a 3 × 3 array. In this chapter we will study such arrays, which are called matrices. We will return to the connection between matrices and linear transformations in the next chapter.
