Making a square matrix from two vector
Posted: Feb 8, 2013 10:42 AM

Hello,

"a" is a vector (size 1-by-11) and "b" is also a vector (size 11-by-1), in that the first number of these two vectors is the same so "a1"="b1".

I would like to create a square matrix (size of this matrix is 11-by-11), from these two vectors in that "a" is the first row of this matrix and "b" is the first column of this matrix. In fact, I am going to use this function [F = (a + b) + (a * b)] to fill out the rest of this matrix. So, the shape of matrix would be in this way:

a1=b1 a2 a3 a4 a5 a6 a7 a8 a9 a10 a11
b2 b2a2 b2a3 b2a4 b2a5.............................................
b3 b3a2 .......................................................................
b4 .................................................................................
b5 .................................................................................
b6 .................................................................................
b7 .................................................................................
b8 .................................................................................
b9 .................................................................................
b10 ..................................................................................
b11 .............................................................................b11a11

Thanks,
Jerry
