Hi Art,

Inner is geared towoards tensor analysis. Its arguments are "atomic", 

not lists. But ListCorrelate needs lists as arguments. You can achieve 

this e.g. by using MapThread:

Total@MapThread[ListCorrelate, {#, d}] & /@ h

This may be shorter, but not more readable.

hope this helps, Daniel
