" You are right when tou say that "it appears that whatever this construction might be it > could be generated from a Kronecker" but the question is how to automate such task in Mata. You know that with matrix A(k,l), B(m,n) ; A#B =C(k*m,l*n) but here we want a new matrix C(k,l*n) asumming that k=m. Hence my motivation to write my hdp() function AbdelRahmen 2007/10/19, Kit Baum <kitbaum@mac.com>: > Abdel wrote > > I've written this mata function as a solution to my own question > yesterday. > horizontal direct product (hdp). > --------begin code------------ > version 9.2 > local mydir "." > mata: > mata clear > real matrix hdp(real matrix A, real matrix B) > { > assert(rows(A)==rows(B)) > real scalar n > real matrix C > n=rows(A) > C=J(n,1,.) > for (i=1; i<=cols(A); i++) { > C=C,(A[.,i]:*B) > } > C=C[.,2..cols(C)] > return(C) > } > > > I've never heard of a 'horizontal direct product' but in a 2x2 > example it seems to be the first and last rows of a conventional > Kronecker product: > > : a > 1 2 > +---------+ > 1 | 1 2 | > 2 | 3 4 | > +---------+ > > : b > 1 2 > +---------+ > 1 | 5 6 | > 2 | 0 1 | > +---------+ > > : c > 1 2 3 4 > +---------------------+ > 1 | 5 6 10 12 | > 2 | 0 3 0 4 | > +---------------------+ > > : a#b > 1 2 3 4 > +---------------------+ > 1 | 5 6 10 12 | > 2 | 0 1 0 2 | > 3 | 15 18 20 24 | > 4 | 0 3 0 4 | > +---------------------+ > > > For a 3x3 example, it is the 1st, 5th and 9th rows of the Kronecker > product.
