Hi everyone!

I am looking for a way in IML to add additional rows and columns to a matrix. To give you a an idea I'd better use an example:

Let's assume I have 10 x 10 matrix. My goal is to add an extra column with 0's between the original second and third column and between the sixth and seventh column. The same goes for the rows. The result should be a 12 x 12 matrix.

Do you have any ideas?

THANK YOU!!!

You could use the INSERT function four times, but I think it will be more efficient to allocate a 12x12 matrix of zeros and then insert the original matrix into the appropriate rows/cols as a submatrix. Both methods are shown below:

proc iml;

x = shape(1:100, 10);

/* 1. Insert row or col of zeros */

z = j(1, 10, 0); /* row of zeros */

tmp = insert(x, z, 3);

tmp = insert(tmp, z, 8);

tmp = insert(x, z`, 0, 3);

y = insert(tmp, z`, 0, 8);

print y;

/* 2. Allocate 12x12 matrix of zeros and copy x into it */

y = j(12, 12, 0); /* all zeros */

idx = setdif(1:12, {3 8}); /* gives {1 2 4 5 6 7 9 10 11 12} */

y[idx, idx] = x;

print y;

Perfect.... Thank you so much.

Just one more thing:

Do you know a way to use the insert function for more than one vector/matrix at once. The problem is that the function won't allow me to insert the vector at two different positions at the same time (between second and third column and sixth and seventh column). The only way I can think of is using a loop.

Do you happen to know a more elegant/efficient way?

Thank you for your quick reply...

Repeating the statements would be also an option. However when the matrices become bigger and when there are more columns to be inserted it doesn't seem to be so efficient.
