Re: Kronecker product of matrices

  • To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net
  • Subject: [mg18518] Re: [mg18429] Kronecker product of matrices

Here is a solution to the following:

>Is there a simple way to make Outer[Times,A,B] produce the Kronecker
>product of A and B?  What I mean is that if A is nxn and B mxm, Outer
>produces a block form, instead of a plain (mn)x(mn) matrix.


Ciao, Markus van Almsick

                    Mathematica-Compatible Notebook

This notebook can be used on any computer system with Mathematica 4.0,
MathReader 4.0, or any compatible application. The data for the notebook
starts with the line containing stars above.

To get the notebook into a Mathematica-compatible application, do one of
the following:

* Save the data starting with the line of stars above into a file
  with a name ending in .nb, then open the file inside the application;

* Copy the data starting with the line of stars above to the
  clipboard, then use the Paste menu command inside the application.

Data for notebooks contains only printable 7-bit ASCII and can be
sent directly in email or through ftp in text mode.  Newlines can be
CR, LF or CRLF (Unix, Macintosh or MS-DOS style).

NOTE: If you modify the data for this notebook not in a Mathematica-
compatible application, you must delete the line below containing the
word CacheID, otherwise Mathematica-compatible applications may try to
use invalid cache data.

For more information on notebooks and Mathematica-compatible
applications, contact Wolfram Research:
  web: http://www.wolfram.com
  email: info at wolfram.com
  phone: +1-217-398-0700 (U.S.)

Notebook reader applications are available free of charge from
Wolfram Research.
