View source: R/E.matrices.R

Description

This function constructs and returns a list of lists. The component of each sublist is a square matrix derived from the column vectors of an order n identity matrix.

Usage

1

Arguments

n

a positive integer for the order of the identity matrix

Details

Let {{\bf{I}}_n} = ≤ft[ {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}} {{{\bf{e}}_1}}&{{{\bf{e}}_2}}& \cdots &{{{\bf{e}}_n}} \end{array}} \right] be the order n identity matrix with corresponding unit vectors {{{\bf{e}}_i}} with one in its ith position and zeros elsewhere. The n \times n matrix {{\bf{E}}_{i,j}} is computed from the unit vectors {{{\bf{e}}_i}} and {{{\bf{e}}_j}} as {{\bf{E}}_{i,j}} = {{\bf{e}}_i}\;{{\bf{e'}}_j}. These matrices are stored as components in a list of lists.

Value

A list with n components

1

A sublist of n components

2

A sublist of n components

...

n

A sublist of n components

Each component j of sublist i is a matrix {\bf{E}}_{i,j}

Note

The argument n must be an integer value greater than or equal to 2.
