Physical dimensions are the link between mathematical models and the real world. In this article we extended results of the work of Hart (1995) by determining the dimensional structure of a matrix under which standard operations involving the inverse, powers, exponential, and eigenvalues are valid. These results were applied to state space models. We also distinguished between different types of dimensionless units.
