Subject |
st: A Loop for Making Matrixes and calculating Eigenvalues for each Observation |

Date |
Mon, 17 Sep 2007 01:46:14 -0600 |

Dear Statalist,

I have already generated four variable A, B, C, and D each contains 43 observation inn Stata V8.2. I want to make 43 square matrix (2 by 2) using each of 43 observation based on each observation of these variables. Then, I want to calclate the real Eigenvalues of each matrix and list each of them. I need to wrire a loop to do this job. Actually, I have already written the following loop using "foreach command" but I am getting the following error as follows;

foreach i = 1/43 {

2. matrix K[`i'] = (A[`i'], B[`i'] \ C[`i'],D[`i'])

3. matrix symeigen X[`i'] V[`i'] = K[`i']

4. matrix list V[`i']

5. }

invalid syntax

r(198);

end of do-file

r(198);

May anybody in the list please help me out on this matter or say me how can I perform this job more efficiently?

Thanks in advance
