Re: col-vector * row-vector = matrix, how ?


Malte,

Try this:

In[1]:= Outer[Times,{a,b,c},{x,y,z}]
Out[1]= {{a x,a y,a z},{b x,b y,b z},{c x,c y,c z}}

Subject: [mg18482]  [mg18451] col-vector * row-vector = matrix, how ?




Need to know how to accomplish the following in Mathematica-3.0:

v1 := transpose(<a,b,c>)   /* column-vector */

v2 := <x,y,z>              /* row-vector */

( ax ay az )
( bx by bz ) = v1 * v2 =: m /* 3x3-matrix */
( cx cy cz )

Does anyone know how to do this in Mathematica ?

Any help is highly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Malte.
