Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have five 6x6 matrices defined on mathematica with some unknowns and I need the final matrix lets say, mf.

When I tried to find out mf with Dot[] command, it works but the result won't be so logic. On the other hand, when I tried to do this multiplication with . symbol, there exists a result but when I asked the program lets say mf[[1,1]] it prints the entire row.

Lets say my matrices are m1,m2,m3,m4 and m5.( Notation is just for assumption)

What should I do to calculate if mf is written like following on the paper;

mf=m1.m2.m3.m4.m5

I tried a way like this also,

aa=m5.m4;

bb=aa.m3;

cc=bb.m2;

mf=cc.m1;

However, this is not logic. There sould be some way to define more than 2 matrices multiplication in one time.

If you need or request, I can upload my studies too.

Best.
