#### 8.4.10 Matrix operations

The following operations are defined for real and complex matrices.

Function: int gsl_matrix_add (gsl_matrix * a, const gsl_matrix * b)

This function adds the elements of matrix b to the elements of matrix a. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow a(i,j) + b(i,j) is stored in a and b remains unchanged. The two matrices must have the same dimensions.

Function: int gsl_matrix_sub (gsl_matrix * a, const gsl_matrix * b)

This function subtracts the elements of matrix b from the elements of matrix a. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow a(i,j) - b(i,j) is stored in a and b remains unchanged. The two matrices must have the same dimensions.

Function: int gsl_matrix_mul_elements (gsl_matrix * a, const gsl_matrix * b)

This function multiplies the elements of matrix a by the elements of matrix b. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow a(i,j) * b(i,j) is stored in a and b remains unchanged. The two matrices must have the same dimensions.

Function: int gsl_matrix_div_elements (gsl_matrix * a, const gsl_matrix * b)

This function divides the elements of matrix a by the elements of matrix b. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow a(i,j) / b(i,j) is stored in a and b remains unchanged. The two matrices must have the same dimensions.

Function: int gsl_matrix_scale (gsl_matrix * a, const double x)

This function multiplies the elements of matrix a by the constant factor x. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow x a(i,j) is stored in a.

Function: int gsl_matrix_add_constant (gsl_matrix * a, const double x)

This function adds the constant value x to the elements of the matrix a. The result a(i,j) \leftarrow a(i,j) + x is stored in a.
