Vectorization of Matrices and Matrix Functions: Matrix Differentiation

  • Phoebus J. Dhrymes


It is frequently more convenient to write a matrix in vector form. For lack of a suitable term we have coined for this operation the phrase “vectorization of matrices.” For example, if A is a matrix of parameters and A the corresponding matrix of estimators it is often necessary to consider the distribution of
$$\tilde{A} - A.$$
