So you want to compute an outer product? For two 1-dimensional terms (i.e. vectors) you have:
[]' * [] = [a1*b1 ... a1*bn; ...; an*b1 ... an*bn]
which can be written "a_i * b_j" using physicists' tensor notation. For two 2-dimensional terms (i.e. matrices) you have a tensor product like "a_ij * b_kl", and you can generalize this to any rank (and to other operations besides "*"). I think PDL can compute outer products for low ranks, but you'll probably need to create an iterator or some such to avoid running out of memory with higher ranks.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
