math.matrices

Class description

The class of regular, rectangular matrices. In mathematics and linear algebra, a matrix is a rectangular collection of scalar elements for the purpose of the uniform application of algorithms.

Notes

In Factor, any sequence with two or more dimensions (one or more layers of subsequences) can be a matrix, and the elements may be any object.

A regular matrix is a sequence with two or more dimensions, whose subsequences are all of equal length. See regular-matrix?.

Irregular matrices are classified by irregular-matrix.
