<> Gabi proposed real scalar maxneighbor(real matrix A, real scalar i, real scalar j) { real scalar k, r, max r=rows(A) max=colmax(A)[1,j] k=1 while(A[k,j]<max) { k=k+1 } return(A[k,i]) }

A solution to the problem, I believe, is capture mata mata drop maxneighbor() mata x = 1,55 \ 2,44 \ 3,33 \ 2,22 \ 2,11 real scalar maxneighbor(real matrix A, real scalar i, real scalar j) { real scalar k, max maxindex(A[.,j], 1, ii, w) return(A[ii[1,1],i]) } ival = maxneighbor( x, 2, 1) ival end
