In mathematics, the term Cartan matrix has three meanings. All of these are named after the French mathematician Élie Cartan. In fact, Cartan matrices in the context of Lie algebras were first investigated by Wilhelm Killing, whereas the Killing form is due to Cartan.
Famous quotes containing the word matrix:
“The matrix is God?
In a manner of speaking, although it would be more accurate ... to say that the matrix has a God, since this beings omniscience and omnipotence are assumed to be limited to the matrix.
If it has limits, it isnt omnipotent.
Exactly.... Cyberspace exists, insofar as it can be said to exist, by virtue of human agency.”
—William Gibson (b. 1948)
