# .*

Element-wise matrix multiplication operator.

## Syntax

R = A .* B

## Inputs

`A`- Any valid scalar | vector | matrix.
`B`- Any valid scalar | complex number | matrix.

## Outputs

- R
- Resulting scalar | complex number | matrix

## Examples

Basic dot product example with two scalars:

`R = 3.*2`

`R = 6`

Dot product of a matrix and a scalar:

`R = [1 2 5 3].*2`

`R = [ 2 4 10 6 ]`

Dot product of a matrix and a matrix:

`R = [1 3 6].*[7 2 8]`

`R = [ 7 6 48 ]`
