Matrix Multiplication O(nlgn) problems

Can somebody give us some very good problems where O(nlgn) matrix multiplication is needed.

Matrix multiplication can not be done in O(n log n). Perhaps you are thinking of polynomial multiplication?

I think he was referring to the problem of optimally using parenthesis so that evaluating a product of an array of matrices would finish in the minimal amount of time.

And can that be done in O(n log n)?

We live to learn
I didn't know this result before. So far I only read the abstract, but it seems pretty interesting. I will surely read the entire article when I have the time. Thanks for the link!
