Problem Definition

Let S be any algebraic structure over which matrix multiplication is defined, such as a field (e.g., real numbers), a ring (e.g., integers), or a semiring (e.g., the Boolean semiring). If we use + and ⋅ to denote the addition and multiplication operations over S, then the matrix product C of two n × n matrices A and B is defined as ...
