Hello,
I was hoping that one of you might be able to help me with a
misunderstanding about typesetting matrix equations in LaTeX. I have
read through the table and matrices sections of Kopka & Daly's book
(Chapters 4 & 5), but I seem to be missing something in which teTeX
isn't happy with. My source looks something like the following:
\begin{equation}
\[
\left[
\begin{array}{llcl}
(\vec{e_1},\vec{e_1}) & (\vec{e_1},\vec{e_2}) & \cdots &
(\vec{e_1},\vec{e_n})\\
(\vec{e_2},\vec{e_1}) & (\vec{e_2},\vec{e_2}) & \cdots &
(\vec{e_2},\vec{e_n})\\
\multicolumn{4}{c}\dotfill\\
(\vec{e_n},\vec{e_1}) & (\vec{e_n},\vec{e_2}) & \cdots &
(\vec{e_n},\vec{e_n})
\end{array} \right]
\left[
\begin{array}{c}
c_1\\
c_2\\
\vdots \\
c_n
\end{array} \right]
=
\left[
\begin{array}{c}
(\vec{f},\vec{e_1})\\
(\vec{f},\vec{e_2})\\
\vdots \\
(\vec{f},\vec{e_n})
\end{array} \right]
\]
\end{equation}
I was hoping this would typeset two matrices being multiplied by each
other and which were equal to a third array, and of course have an
equation number next to it. Any help about where I went wrong would be
appreciated.
Thanks,
