Associativity of Hadamard and matrix product

  1. Oct 11, 2014 #1

    Let us suppose we have three real matrices [itex]A, B, C[/itex] and let [itex] \circ [/itex] denote the Hadamard product, while [itex]AB[/itex] is the conventional matrix product. Is this relation true for all [itex]A, B, C[/itex] matrices:
    [tex] C \circ (AB) = A( C\circ B)?[/tex]
    I looked at it more thoroughly and I realized that this assumption is not true. But then what relation can be created between matrix product and Hadamard product?

    Thanks for the post! Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I couldn't solve it, so the post can be reworded.
