Matteo -- The following is a way of constructing a matrix like the one you have - but you might run into allocational issues for larger problems, because for large N and large T, M is a matrix with a lot of zeros and can really eat up the space! I might also mention that my little code here uses loops, and there might be a more efficient way to do this. /* Begin example */ clear all webuse union keep if id<5 mata st_view(id=.,.,"idcode") M=J(rows(id),rows(id),0) for (i=1;i<=rows(m);i++) { ni=[i,2]-m[i,1]+1 M[m[i,1]::m[i,2],m[i,1]::m[i,2]]=I(ni)-J(ni,ni,1/ni) } end /* End example */ Hope that helps!
