The first statement is equivalent to 

a = -w*w;

which is matrix multiplication.

 

The second statement is equivalent to 

a = x[2,1];

because transpose means flip the matrix across the main diagonal.

 

It sounds like you have some very basic questions about the SAS/IML language. You might want to look at these resources to help you get started with the language: "Ten tips for learning the SAS/IML language."
