I have been trying to find an intuition for the transpose of a matrix. I have also read the posts in mathstackexhange but unfortunately it couldn’t help me.Can anyone please explain what is the idea behind the transpose of a matrix specially in linear algebra and operator theory? Thanks for consideration.

    $\begingroup$ It is the matrix for the linear map on the dual spaces, equipped with the dual bases. Didn't you see that somewhere? $\endgroup$ – Bernard Feb 22 at 20:57

  • $\begingroup$ You can arrange $n$-tuples of numbers either as row or column vectors, and we take $m$ of them. $\endgroup$ – Berci Feb 22 at 20:59
