Basic Usage

Creating a Matrix

Creating a matrix using YCMatrix is straightforward. You can create an empty matrix or initialize it with values. Here are a few examples:

// Create an empty matrix
let emptyMatrix = YCMatrix()

// Create a matrix with specific dimensions
let matrix = YCMatrix(rows: 3, columns: 3)

// Initialize a matrix with predefined values
let initializedMatrix = YCMatrix(values: [[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]])

Performing Matrix Operations

YCMatrix provides a wide range of operations for matrices. Here are some common matrix operations:

  • Matrix addition
  • Matrix subtraction
  • Matrix multiplication
  • Matrix transposition
  • Determinant calculation
  • Matrix inversion

// Matrix addition
let sumMatrix = matrix1 + matrix2

// Matrix subtraction
let diffMatrix = matrix1 - matrix2

// Matrix multiplication
let productMatrix = matrix1 * matrix2

// Matrix transposition
let transposedMatrix = matrix.transposed()

// Determinant calculation
let determinant = matrix.determinant()

// Matrix inversion
let invertedMatrix = matrix.inverted()

Working with Vectors

YCMatrix also supports vector operations such as addition, subtraction, multiplication, and dot product calculation. Here’s an example of vector operations using YCMatrix:

let vector1 = YCMatrix(vector: [1, 2, 3])
let vector2 = YCMatrix(vector: [4, 5, 6])

// Vector addition
let sumVector = vector1 + vector2

// Vector subtraction
let diffVector = vector1 - vector2

// Vector multiplication
let scalarMultiplication = vector1 * 2

// Dot product calculation
let dotProduct = vector1.dot(vector2)
