vech {configural}R Documentation

Vectorize a matrix

Description

cvec returns the column-wise vectorization of an input matrix (stacking the columns on one another). rvec returns the row-wise vectorization of an input matrix (concatenating the rows after each other). vech returns the column-wise half-vectorization of an input matrix (stacking the lower triangular elements of the matrix, including the diagonal). vechs returns the strict column-wise half-vectorization of an input matrix (stacking the lower triangular elements of the matrix, excluding the diagonal). All functions return the output as a vector.
