if you're coming from matlab, then you should think of python lists
more like cell arrays than matrices: you can have lists of arbitrary
data types, so multiply is not going to work in the matrix way.
check out http://web.bryant.edu/~bblais/bryant/numerical_computing/
python_matlab.pdf
but more importantly, you need to install numpy (which has the matrix
stuff) and scipy (which has the scientific packages). What I do is
go to www.enthought.com and they have a single-download package
geared specifically for scientists.
