(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

here's the problem:

Let A and B be n x n matrix with coefficient in K (any field), let Mn(K) be the set of all n x n matrix with coefficient in K . T is a linear map defined like this

T : Mn(K)---> Mn(K)

T(Y) = AYB

what are the necessary conditions for T to be a bijection (isomorphism). Prove it

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

For now I think I'm pretty sure I found that the conditions would be that there is no colum or line in which all elements = 0 in A or B. Because if it was the case then you would know that there exists a vector x of K^n such that Ax=0 or Bx = 0 and If X and Y were non equals matrix with colums being scalar multiple of x Then AXB = 0 = AYB which mean that T is not injective.

Now I think this prove that my condition is necessary but I don't know how to prove that this is the only condition needed. Also I have difficulty proving the injection and the surjection of T once this condition is applied.
