Matrices are one of the most rapidly advancing fields in the area of mathematics. During the twentieth century applications have been found for matrices in the areas of physics, statistics, chemistry, and economics. Much of the development of the aspects of matrix similarity, congruence, equivalence, orthogonal similarity and Hermitian congruence is due to the applications of matrices outside mathematics. However, matrices are an area of mathematics in their own right. This thesis will treat matrices as an algebraic system, as a theoretical system irregardless of applications.
