Greetings,

How does one refer to a vector of independent variables from within an ML program? For example, suppose I need to write a gradient vector, the formula for which looks something like this:

∂ ln L/ ∂ Β = (1/sigma^2) x'(y - xΒ)

where x' is a k by 1 vector of the independent variables for an observation. I know that I can refer to y as $ML_y1 and xB as one of the arguments (theta, for instance), but how can I call x' in the formula? Ultimately, I will have multiple equations in this formula, so I need to be able to specify equation from which the x's are coming.

Many thanks,
