Rowspecific scalar multiplication
Posted:

Hi, I'm trying to do rowspecific matrix multiplication. I know that this is confusing; it is best described by an example:
For example, say that I have:
f = [2; 4];
A = [1 2 3; 1 2 3];
I'm trying to find an operation such that
f .* A
returns
[2 4 6; 4 8 12]
In this example, I used the ".*" operation. However, this returns a Matlab error since the matrix dimensions do not agree. Does anyone know of a way to accomplish what I am trying to do, without resorting to loops?
Thanks,
Abed Alnaif
