I think you are struggling of __matmul__ and the @-operator. Both are related to matrix multiplication. Find more information at: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/27385633/what-is-the-symbol-for-in-python

Normally the @ operator is used by numpy for matrix multiplication. In your sample code, the meaning of this operator is overridden by the magic method __matmul__ Your class l is subclass of list, with the additional capability that two l objects can be combined with this operator. As it is implemented, it adds the values element-wise to create a new l object, so the result of [email protected] will be [10, 10, 10, 10, 10]
