matlib: Matrix Functions for Teaching and Learning Linear Algebra and Multivariate Statistics

A collection of matrix functions for teaching and learning matrix linear algebra as used in multivariate statistical methods. These functions are mainly for tutorial purposes in learning matrix algebra ideas using R. In some cases, functions are provided for concepts available elsewhere in R, but where the function call or name is not obvious. In other cases, functions are provided to show or demonstrate an algorithm.
