The notation Matn(𝕂) is often used to signify the set of square matrices which are of order n (size n×n) with elements drawn from a field 𝕂. Thus, one would use aMat3() to declare that a is a three-by-three matrix with elements that are complex numbers.

Property: Suppose A and B are matrices such that AB is a square matrix. Then the product BA is defined and also a square matrix.
