Matrix.__mul__(self, other) documentation ambiguity



  • Hi,

    the Python documentation for Matrix.__mul__(self, other) states:

    If both objects are of type Matrix, multiplies the left hand matrix by the right hand matrix.

    Which is very confusingly worded IMHO, since right-handed and left-handed matrices are defined terms, but most likely not what this section is referring to. To avoid ambiguities it should be probably something like this instead:

    If both objects are of type Matrix, it multiplies the matrix on the left side of the operator by the matrix on the right side of the operator.

    or preferably just :

    If both objects are of type Matrix, it multiplies self by other.

    Cheers,

  • Thanks a lot @zipit . I indeed agree and will update the documentation accordingly.

    Best and stay safe!
