## Matrix Calculators for Excel

A matrix calculator enables one to explore the properties of matrices of different dimensions. The built in matrix calculator for Microsoft Excel lets you explore matrices of various shapes and dimensions, even tens of thousands of dimension. Each of the thousands of dimensions can be fitted to a particular range using the mathematical expression known as a tensor. The output of a matrix calculator is normally in the form of a matrix array whose elements are the rows of the matrix or a column.

One of the most widely used mathematical concepts is the matrix factorization, which determines the value of a matrix factor as the result of a mathematical operation. Matrix factors are usually obtained by various methods. The first is the natural way, which involves the row and column permutation which is also known as the transpose, cross combination, or the symmetrical combination. The other method is the row-column function where the determinant is equal to zero if the matrix is linearly ordered. Matrix factors are also determined by the quadratic formula, where a polynomial function is used to determine the value of the matrix factor.
