Part of the Algebra and Applications book series (AA, volume 23)


Matrices play an important role in both pure and applied mathematics. Matrices with entries in rings have been intensively studied and used; as well as matrices with entries in semirings, Boolean algebras, semigroups and lattices. This book focuses on a more general object: formal matrices or, alternatively, generalized matrices. What is a formal matrix? Without going into much detail, one might say that it is a matrix with elements in several different rings or bimodules.
