// instantiate n by n matrices A, B, and C

// technique 1: legal only in C++

C *= B;	 		// in-place matrix multiplication
C *= 2;				// in-place multiplication by a scalar

// technique 2: legal in C++ and Java
C = A.mul(B);			// matrix multiplication returning new matrix
C.mulBy(B);			// in-place matrix multiplication
C.mulBy(2); 			// in-place multiplication by a scalar
