If A is a matrix of order & B is a matrix of order B, the direct product, A X B, is a matrix of order & B as defined by C. C. MacDuffee in An Introduction to Abstract Algebra. The question arises as to whether there are any relationships between A X B and A and B, as, for instance, between the characteristic polynomials or between the minimum polynomials of these matrices. The purpose of this thesis is to present some of these relationships with the proof of their existence.
