[R] Working with a set of matrices

I have a set of matrices (MAT.1, MAT.2, ...) and I'd like to perform the same operation on each of them (for simplicity, say . I'm writing a function for this so that it can be repeated for different sets with different numbers of matrices. The matrices have the same number of columns, but do not have the same number of rows.

My thought is to loop thru the set. but I'm not sure how to set the loop up so that the matrix number changes for each cycle. I have tried paste, but that leaves quotation marks around the matrix name (e.g., "MAT.1", and I need just MAT.1), or at least the way I'm using paste..

Any thoughts? If there is a better way than the loop, then I'm of course open to that.

Thanks in advance.
