Hi, I have a basic question with matrix calculation.

If: I have 15 columns variables say 5000 by 15

Need: take only column 15 and inverse it, and then multiply with a 2 by 1 vector.

Can anyone give some hint how to do that?

I don't know how to take a column and treat it as a vector or combine two columns and treat it as a vector.

Example: As shown in the example, Iet's say I need to combine ConprobA and ConprobB as a vector and then multiply with a 2 by 1 vector.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.

In the DATA step, double vertical bars (||) is the operator for string concatenation. So the following DATA step creates a CHARACTER variable z, which is the string-wise concatenation of x and y:

data a;

x=1.23; y=4.56; z = x || y;

put z;

run;

In contrast, the horizontal concatenation operator (||) in SAS/IML concatenates two vectors into a matrix that has two columns. So i n PROC IML the same statement results in a 1x2 vector:

proc iml;

x=1.23; y=4.56; z = x || y;

print z;

run;

You can use IML directly for this problem, probably simpler.
This R solution can be converted to IML easily or
you can use the IML interface to R.
The free version of WPS does not limit the size of the SAS dataset
created by 'proc r'.

There are many ways to multiply in the SAS/IML matrix.

I don't understand some of your requests. What do you mean by "take only column 15 and inverse it"? (by the way, your example only has 14 columns...)

Also, when you say you want to multiply a column vector by a 2x1 vector, what do you mean? If v is a 2x1 vector, do you want the product x*v` or something else? Please provide an example with numbers for N=5.

The only lines in the DATA step that look similar to your request are the statements

ConprobA = ConA*pi1;

ConprobB = ConB*pi2;

Here are some IML statements that might give you some feeling for how to extract columns and multiply columns together:

```
proc iml;
use States;
read all var _NUM_ into X[colname=varNames];
close States;
print varNames;
/* general exaples of extracting columns */
A = X[ ,14]; /* get column 14 */
B = X[ ,13:14]; /* get columns 13-14 */
Y = X[ , {"ConprobA" "ConprobB"}]; /* get the 2 columns */
p = {0.68, 0.32}; /* 2 x 1 vector */
LinComb = Y * v; /* form linear combination of columns of Y */
print (LinComb[1:5,]); /* print only 5 rows */
Con = Y # v`; /* elementwise multiplication */
print (Con[1:5,])[colname={"ConA" "ConB"}];
```

If you are looking for a good overview of basic matrix multiplication and manipulations in SAS/IML, I recommend "Getting Started with the SAS/IML Language"

Thank you for replying and sorry for the confusion.

I combined column 13 and 14 yesterday and got the conlumn 15 like that:

P = ConprobA || ConprobB;

Here is the sample of 5 for what I mean:

```
Obs CONPROBA CONPROBB n
1 0.09303 0.013450 0.093030.013450
2 0.09269 0.013473 0.092690.013473
3 0.28243 0.018018 0.282430.018018
4 0.14858 0.016055 0.148580.016055
5 0.10607 0.013096 0.106070.013096
```

So if ConprobA and ConprobB is the column 13 and 14, the column 15 would be n.

What I mean by take only column 15 is I want to treat column n as a vector. And I want to inverse it.

Then multiply with 2x1 vector I mean the column 15 multiply with a 2x1 vector.

But my way doesn't work yesterday.

I will read the link that you provide.

Thank you Rick, that addressed my question.
