Affine transformation

An affine transformation takes vectors to vectors, and can be expressed as a matrix multiplication and vector addition:

[math]y = M x + b[/math]

Typically (for example in iterated function systems) [math]x[/math] and [math]y[/math] will have the same dimensions, making the [math]M[/math] matrix square.
