I'm not too sure what you mean by using shadow matrices for each object, but the most common -and easy- technique to cast shadows are stencil shadow volumes. A newer technique that is aparently becoming more popular is shadow mapping. The background and implementations of these techniques are available in GameDev's excellent article archive:
