TRANSPOSE matrix function


TRANSPOSE(A) returns the transpose of matrix A: a matrix with the row and column indices switched. The transpose of a matrix is denoted as A′ or AT.

The transpose of the 3 × 2 matrix A:

$$ A=\begin{bmatrix}
 1&5 \\
 4&8 \\
\end{bmatrix} $$

is the 2 × 3 matrix A′:

$$ A^{'}=A^T=\begin{bmatrix}
 1& 4 & 6\\
5 & 8 & 2 \end{bmatrix}$$
