It's a matrix multiplication operator!

From the documentation:

Description:Multiplies two matrices, if they are conformable. If one argument is a vector, it will be promoted to either a row or column matrix to make the two arguments conformable. If both are vectors of the same length, it will return the inner product (as a matrix).

Usage:`x %*% y`

Arguments:

`x`

,`y`

numeric or complex matrices or vectors
