Vector multiplication

Vector multiplication

Please find the attached image:

As you note, I did need several equations to find the values (1.023, 1.004, 0.976, 0.955) due to the fact that the multiplication of two column vectors is a unique value.
How one can write a unique equation to get these numbers?
A work around came into mind that I use transpose of Lambda, then get diagonal of the result.
Your help would be highly appreciated.

Re vectorization operator, what did this do with respect to matrix operations?

RE: Vector multiplication

Typically, you could do the same calculation by creating an index i := 0;rows(a.w)-1 and create an indexed calculation, i.e., result[i := 1-a.w[i/1200+300*a.w[i etc. The vectorize operator does that automatically, but the indices all have to match.
