## Homework Statement

So yeah as the topic says. What does R^(nxm) mean? Is that a matrix or an n x m space. The notation is really confusing and sometimes it means something else.

I'm doing regression analysis right now and this shows up a lot. Is it a matrix when you say something like C = ℝ^(k x m). I'm not sure if that means its a k x m matrix or a k x m space. Mainly because in examples when they say that, it shows up as a k x m matrix. I'm guessing its a a matrix because of the = sign? If you had an E sign instead it would be contained in a space?
