Introduction to Matrices

Let’s go over the Matrices pattern, its real-world applications, and some problems we can solve with it.

About the pattern

A matrix is a group of numbers arranged in rows and columns in a rectangular pattern. In computer science, matrixes are represented by 2D arrays with dimensions m×nm \times n, where mm is the number of rows, and nn is the number of columns. Each element in the matrix can be accessed using the array indexes. The first index represents the row, and the second index represents the column. For example, matrix[i][j]matrix[i][j] is an element from the ithi^{th} row and the jthj^{th} column of the matrix.
