See page 220 of Vinod (2008) “Hands-on Intermediate Econometrics Using R,”
for the trapezoidal integration formula
needed for stochastic dominance. The book explains pre-multiplication by two
large sparse matrices denoted by *I_F, I_f*. Here we accomplish the
same computation without actually creating the large sparse matrices. For example, the
*I_f* is replaced by `cumsum`

in this code (unlike the R code in
my textbook).

1 | ```
bigfp(d, p)
``` |

`d` |
A vector of consecutive interval lengths, upon combining both data vectors |

`p` |
Vector of probabilities of the type 1/2T, 2/2T, 3/2T, etc. to 1. |

Returns a result after pre-multiplication by *I_F, I_f*
matrices, without actually creating the large sparse matrices. This is an internal function.

This is an internal function, called by the function `stochdom2`

, for
comparison of two portfolios in terms of stochastic dominance (SD) of orders
1 to 4.
Typical usage is:
```
sd1b=bigfp(d=dj, p=rhs)
sd2b=bigfp(d=dj, p=sd1b)
sd3b=bigfp(d=dj, p=sd2b)
sd4b=bigfp(d=dj, p=sd3b)
```

.
This produces numerical evaluation vectors for the four orders, SD1 to SD4.
