i have a view X on k variables and a (k x k) matrix W

i need a vector where row i equals X[i,.]*W*X[i,.]'

at the moment i do the following

xwx = J(st_nobs(), 1, .)
for (i=1; i<=st_nobs(); ++i) 
    xwx[i] = X[i,.]*W*X[i,.]'

which does the trick, but i was wondering whether it is possible to speed this up?

thanks in advance for your suggestions.

regards, edwin
