I have been trying to find an intuition for the transpose of a matrix. I have also read the posts in mathstackexhange but unfortunately it couldn’t help me.Can anyone please explain what is the idea behind the transpose of a matrix specially in linear algebra and operator theory? Thanks for consideration.

    It is the matrix for the linear map on the dual spaces, equipped with the dual bases. Didn't you see that somewhere? – Bernard Feb 22 '19 at 20:57

    This question here and its answers gives a geometric interpretation of the transpose: https://math.stackexchange.com/questions/37398/what-is-the-geometric-interpretation-of-the-transpose – Greg Nisbet Feb 22 '19 at 20:58
  • You can arrange $n$-tuples of numbers either as row or column vectors, and we take $m$ of them. – Berci Feb 22 '19 at 20:59
