Kronecker Product (G Dataflow)

Calculates the Kronecker product of two input matrices.

matrix A

The first input matrix.

This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

Default: Empty array

matrix B

The second input matrix.

This input accepts a 2D array of double-precision, floating point numbers or 2D array of complex double-precision, floating point numbers.

Default: Empty array

error in

Error conditions that occur before this node runs.

The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.

Standard Error Behavior

Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.

error in does not contain an error error in contains an error
If no error occurred before the node runs, the node begins execution normally.

If no error occurs while the node runs, it returns no error. If an error does occur while the node runs, it returns that error information as error out.

If an error occurred before the node runs, the node does not execute. Instead, it returns the error in value as error out.

Default: No error

kronecker product

Matrix containing the Kronecker product of the first and second input matrices.

The number of rows in kronecker product is the product of the number of rows in the first and second input matrices. The number of columns in kronecker product is the product of the number of columns in the first and second input matrices.

error out

Error information.

The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Algorithm for Calculating the Kronecker Product

If A is an n-by-m matrix and B is a k-by-l matrix, the Kronecker product of A and B, C = AB, results in a matrix C with dimensions nk-by-ml. This node calculates the Kronecker product using the following equation.

$C={\left[\begin{array}{cccc}{a}_{11}B& {a}_{12}B& \dots & {a}_{1m}B\\ {a}_{21}B& {a}_{22}B& \dots & {a}_{2m}B\\ ⋮& ⋮& \ddots & ⋮\\ {a}_{n1}B& {a}_{n2}B& \dots & {a}_{nm}B\end{array}\right]}_{nk×ml}$

For example, if

$\begin{array}{cc}A=\left[\begin{array}{cc}1& 2\\ 3& 4\end{array}\right]& B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}5& 6\\ 7& 8\end{array}\right]\end{array}$

then

$\begin{array}{ccc}{a}_{11}B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}5& 6\\ 7& 8\end{array}\right]& {a}_{12}B=\left[\begin{array}{cc}10& 12\\ 14& 16\end{array}\right]& C=\left[\begin{array}{cc}{a}_{11}B& {a}_{12}B\\ {a}_{21}B& {a}_{22}B\end{array}\right]=\left[\begin{array}{cccc}5& 6& 10& 12\\ 7& 8& 14& 16\\ 15& 18& 20& 24\\ 21& 24& 28& 32\end{array}\right]\end{array}$
