## Properties

Elements |
Gets an array of floating-point values that represents the elements of this Matrix. |

IsIdentity |
Gets a value indicating whether this Matrix is the identity matrix. |

IsInvertible |
Gets a value indicating whether this Matrix is invertible. |

MatrixElements |
Gets or sets the elements for the matrix. |

## Methods

Clone() |
Creates an exact copy of this Matrix. |

CreateObjRef(Type) |
Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object. (Inherited from MarshalByRefObject) |

Dispose() |
Releases all resources used by this Matrix. |

Equals(Object) |
Tests whether the specified object is a Matrix and is identical to this Matrix. |

Finalize() |
Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. |
