Hi there, I've completed the snippet to a MWE such that people can directly copy paste your example and try it out. Please prefer doing so for the future questions.

comment TikZ decorated paths and fixedpointarithmetic library
But note that it is caused because of the sharp turns on the edges so fixed point arithmetic might not help there. I'll try fpu to see if it is so when I have chance. Can oyu include the problematic path?

It compiles if you don't use fixedpointarithmetic though. so any reason to include it?

comment Draw (dashed) pathes with multiple branches in Tikz?
Standard solution does not have an easy implementation because dash patterns are PDF objects so they have to be arranged before issued. The easiest is the use dash phase key to a nonzero value. A little more complicated is to get the path length and use the modulo dash pattern to calculate the phase automatically. The actual answer is to go through all the path length computations up to that point.

comment What's the best way to write matrix together with its dimensions on top and left?
I have some experience with linear algebra teaching that, other than showing rectangles with rows and vectors inside them, nothing is illustrative/explanatory. They just create more confusion or state the obvious; People know how to multiply already know it, people who don't know it won't get it with notations.

comment Debugging Advice: Dimension too large (Need stack trace)
@JosephWright I meant you can't set a counter that high. But yes, I think we should promote L3 fpu better as opposed to pgfmath since it is optionally uses fpu libraries and it is not compatible with the drawing engine.
