Infinite products of matrices are used in nonhomogeneous Markov chains, Markov set-chains, demographics, probabilistic automata, production and manpower systems, tomography, and fractals. More recent results have been obtained in computer design of curves and surfaces. This study puts together much of the basic work on infinite products of matrices, providing a primary source for such work. This should eliminate the rediscovery of known results in the area, and thus save considerable time for researchers who work with infinite products of matrices. In addition, two chapters are included to show how infinite products of matrices are used in graphics and in systems work.
