The author points out why row vectors should be used in matrix equations for cascade systems. The use of the popular column vectors for this purpose causes considerable trouble. With row vectors, the matrices and the black boxes of the diagram are in the same order naturally, while with column vectors they can only be brought into such order by artificial means, such as inverse transfer functions and backward signal flow graphs.
