How can I draw a matrix with dots in tex like the one shown below:

Best Answer

I suggest you load the amsmath package, employ its the bmatrix ("bracketed matrix") environment, and use \dots (or \ldots), \vdots ("vertical dots"), and \ddots ("diagonal dots") as needed.

The following screenshot shows two ways this approach could be employed. The first replicates the matrix shown in the OP's posting. The second shows that this method can be used for square as well as non-square matrices.

For a good source to math symbols, I think the Comprehensive LaTeX symbol list is a complement to the very good document Mathmode.pdf. This document is interesting because it offers another organization and you can find all about mathematics.
