    Name of transopose element of an array

    I am writing about a matrix (created on a spreadsheet) where inputing or changing element a_{i,j} causes (a_{i,j})^{-1} to appear at a_{j,i}. I am searching for the proper term for element a_{j,i} relative to a_{i,j}.

    Is it correct to refer to a_{j,i} as the transpose of a_{i,j} (and vice versa)? I am only familiar with 'transpose' referring to whole matrices. Thank you very much.

    I wouldn't say the element is the transpose of the original element. I would probably call a_{ji} the transposed element of the matrix (a_{ij}).
