So thought I’d do a quick post today about the transpose – which is when you flip a matrix so the rows become columns and the columns, rows.  Simple enough concept, right?  So again, lets say that Jane is a painter in, say, 3 dimensions and a physics student in 6 dimensions (you knew this example was coming! Don’t lie!).  We could then present the possibility of some of her physics and some of her painter dimensions as crossing (indicated by a 1) using a matrix where the columns are painter dimensions and the rows are physics dimensions.



But its transpose would have columns as physics dimensions and the rows as painter dimensions, like this:



So do any of these dimensions cross?  Well, now, if you wanna know, you know what to do.  But until next time, strike a transpose!  Yes, I am working on new material too.
