Subject: Speed up the nested loops (slower than inverse a large matrix) From: Ximing xu Date: 27 Nov, 2010 02:14:05 Message: 1 of 12 
I have a large matrix correlation R (n by n), a design matrix F (n by k) and I want to calculate

Post more code, specifically what is in the FOR loop.

Ximing, yes, I agree with Roger than your calculation of sum over 2x2 matrices are very odd. May be there is some rough approximation that leads you to compute such sum. But it looks suspiciously unjustified IMO.

I try to compare two statistical methods: the old method and my new method. For the old method I need to calculate the inverse of R , but for the new method I only need to calculate the inverse of 2by2 matrix. The code I show you is just part of my method. The motivation for my method is that the sum shown in my code is only O(n^2), which is much faster than inversion of R which is O(n^3).

Thanks, Bruno. I agree with you; I think using forloop is not efficient to do the extraction or to do the sum. Is there any (possible) alternative to do the extraction in my case?
