Putting the result in a variable with 3000 obs will just give you 3000 copies of the same number. Therefore, as I understand it, you may need, within this file, to loop over observations, to extract 16 numbers from each observation and get the determinant in each case. However, there is a yet wider context -- this is being called by something else, presumably -simul-. Despite the fearsome singularity(*) of these calculations, it looks as if everything is done row-wise: that is, should all these done as scalar operations and the 3000 replications conducted via -simul-?
