mat.dirsum {dae}R Documentation

Forms the direct sum of a list of matrices

Description

The direct sum is the partitioned matrices whose diagonal submatrices are the matrices from which the direct sum is to be formed and whose off-diagonal submatrices are conformable matrices of zeroes. The resulting matrix is m \times n, where m is the sum of the numbers of rows of the contributing matrices and n is the sum of their numbers of columns.

Usage

mat.dirsum(matrices)

Arguments

matrices

A list, each of whose component is a matrix.

Value

An m \times n matrix.
