Hi,

I have an m x n matrix A, and a set of p vectors of length n (a p x n matrix B)

If v is a vector in B I would like to compute A.*repmat(v, [m 1]) and I would like to do this for all p vectors.

For example if 
A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6]
v = [0 0 1]

I want
[0 0 3; 0 0 6]

and I need to do this for all p vectors.

Is there any way for me to do this without resorting to loops?  I was thinking of using 3D matrices and first converting A to repmat(A, [1 1 p]) but then converting B to the desired 3D matrix is tricky without a loop.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

p.s. If it matters, after finding C = A.*repmat(v, [m 1])  I would like to take the horizontal sum and store this vector somewhere and do this p times
