gives True if expr is a list of lists or a two-dimensional SparseArray object that can represent a matrix, and gives False otherwise.
MatrixQ[expr, test]
gives True only if test yields True when applied to each of the matrix elements in expr.
  • MatrixQ[expr] gives True only if expr is a list, and each of its elements is a list of the same length, containing no elements that are themselves lists, or is a two-dimensional SparseArray object.
