Prove the identity $\displaystyle Au.v = u.A^T v$ Note that "." in the equation means dot product. I know that I should write the dot products as products of matrices but I don't know how to do it. Thanks in advance Last edited by kookie; November 18th, 2017 at 08:38 PM.

You can use "\cdot" instead of using a full stop to denote the dot product.
