In matrix notation what does it mean X 'X I see it in this academic paper, I can't find it in matrix operation and can't search with google.

• I'd guess that $X'$ means transpose, and $X'X$ is the product of two matrices. – user147263 Feb 13 '15 at 3:11
• Yeah, it's a shame. It's not like LaTeX can't just as easily produce $X^T$ or anything. – Ken Feb 13 '15 at 6:16

$X'$ is the transpose matrix and $X'X$ is the product the same matrix. exemple $$X=\left(\matrix{1 & 2&4\\1&3&5}\right),$$ then, $$X'X=\left(\matrix{1 & 1\\2&3\\4&5}\right)\left(\matrix{1 & 2&4\\1&3&5}\right).$$
