A **transformation matrix** is a special matrix that can describe transformations.

Transformation matrices can represent two dimensional transformations as well as three dimensional transformations. The two dimensional transformation matrix is represented by a 3x3 matrix. The four dimensional transformation matrix is represented by a 4x4 matrix. Each type of transformation is represented by certain elements in the matrix.
