squaring the values in a matrix.
Hi,

Are there any matrix operations that can be applied to an n x m matrix that results in each of the individual values of the matrix being squared.

Note that I don't want the matrix squared, I am rather looking to square each of the values in the matrix.

Thanks
Regards
Craig.

Prove It
You would say for a matrix $A$ of entries $a_{ij}$, then matrix $A^{*}$ has entries $(a_{ij})^2$.
