Dear Rfriends,
Hope you doing well. I've been trying to deal with the following problem for
the couple of days but couldn't come up with a solution. It would be great if
any of you could give some insight into it.
I have three matrices like:
dcvol<matrix(c(0.13,0.61,0.25,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.52,0.37,0.09,0.00,0.00,0.00,
0.58,0.30,0.11,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.46,0.22,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.00,
0.09),nrow=5,ncol=5)
volinp<matrix(c(100,0,0,0,0),nrow=5,ncol=1)
scvol<matrix(c(1:40),nrow=5,ncol=8)
What I essentially want to do is to add each value in scvol[1,] with the
volinp[1,1] and then multiply each new volinp with dcvol and finally put the
outputs in a new matrix.
Thanks in advance.

Hi Arun,
Thank you very much for your response. Sorry, if I couldn't explain clearly. I
think, I should restate the problem to get exactly what I want. Here it goes:
I have 2 matrices and 1 vector, namely,
dcmat<matrix(c(0.13,0.61,0.25,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.52,0.37,0.09,0.00,0.00,0.00,
0.58,0.30,0.11,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.46,0.22,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.00,
0.09),nrow=5,ncol=5)
volmat<matrix(c(100,0,0,0,0),nrow=5,ncol=1)
volinp<c(1:40)
What I essentially want to do is to multiply 'dcmat' with 'volmat' and dump
the output in a new matrix 'vol'. But before that, in the first step, I want
to add volinp[1] with volmat[1,1]. So, the first column of the output matrix
'vol' matrix will be:
[,1]
[1,] 13.13
[2,] 61.61
[3,] 25.25
[4,] 0.00
[5,] 0.00
In the 2nd step, I want to add vol[1,1] with volinp[2]. and replace this value
with volmat[1,1]. The new 'volmat' will look like:
[,1]
[1,] 15.13
[2,] 0.00
[3,] 0.00
[4,] 0.00
[5,] 0.00
And then multiply 'dcmat' with the new 'volmat', and the 2nd column of output
matrix 'vol' will look like:
[,2]
[1,] 1.9669
[2,] 9.2293
[3,] 3.7825
[4,] 0.0000
[5,] 0.0000
Then again, replace the volmat[1,1] with vol[1,2] + volinp[3] and multiply the
new 'volmat' with 'dcmat'. This addition, multiplication, and dumping will
continue up to the length of 'volinp' and the final output matrix 'vol' will
be something like:
[,1] [,2] [,3] ...length(volinp)
[1,] 13.13 1.9669 0.645697 ...
[2,] 61.61 9.2293 3.029809 ...
[3,] 25.25 3.7825 1.241725 ...
[4,] 0.00 0.0000 0.000000 ...
[5,] 0.00 0.0000 0.000000 ...
Within my limited capacity, I've tried to come up with a solution but failed.
I'll appreciate your/others' help with gratefulness.

Halim

Please apologize me! Earlier I've sent a message erroneously. Following is the
original problem for which I'm seeking help. Extremely sorry...
Hi Arun,

I think the following is a pretty literal translation from your
description. Looks like a linear difference equation with a ramp forcing
function.
wt < matrix( c(1,0,0,0,0 ), nrow=5 )
vol < matrix( NA, nrow=5, ncol=length( volinp ) )
vol[ , 1 ] < dcmat %*% ( volmat + wt )
for ( idx in volinp[ 1 ] ) {
vol[ , idx ] < dcmat %*% ( vol[ , idx1 ] + idx * wt )
}

Hi Jeff,
Thank you very much for your response. Your code produced exactly the same as
I described. I also like your idea of including 'wt' matrix. Can you please
suggest me if the 'volinp' is not sequential? Consider a new 'volinp', like:
volinp<c(0,0.000467,0.002762,0.008621,0.020014,0.038907,0.067094)
How can I deal with this?
Regards,
Halim

Hi Halim,
I guess this works for you. Modifying Jeff's solution:
volinp<c(0,0.000467,0.002762,0.008621,0.020014,0.038907,0.067094)
vol1 < dcmat %*% (volmat +wt)
for(idx in seq_along(volinp)[1]){
vol1 < cbind(vol1,dcmat %*% (vol1[,idx1] + volinp[idx] *wt))
}
#or
vol < matrix( NA, nrow=5, ncol=length( volinp ) )
vol[ , 1 ] < dcmat %*% ( volmat + wt )
for ( idx in seq_along(volinp)[ 1 ] ) {
vol[ , idx ] < dcmat %*% ( vol[ , idx1 ] + volinp[idx] * wt )
}
identical(vol,vol1)
#[1] TRUE
A.K.

Hi,
Sorry for continuous bothering. Continuum of the previous problem...
I have the following matrices and vectors,
dcmat<matrix(c(0.13,0.61,0.25,0.00,0.00,0.00,0.52,0.37,0.09,0.00,0.00,0.00,

7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7, 7,
7, 7, 7)
I've calculated the following matrices vol and volyrdc1 (obviously with the
help of Jeff and Arun):
#Blank matrices for dumping final values
vol < matrix( NA, nrow=5, ncol=length(volinp1))
volyrdc1<matrix(NA, nrow=5,ncol=length(volinp1),dimnames=
list(c("DC1","DC2","DC3","DC4","DC5"),c(seq(0,500,5))))
vol[ , 1 ] < dcmat %*% (volini+(volinp1[1]*wt))
wt<matrix(c(1,0,0,0,0),nrow=5)
for ( idx in seq_along(volinp1)[ 1 ] ) {
vol[ , idx ] < dcmat %*% ( vol[ , idx1 ] + volinp1[idx] * wt )
}
vol
volyrdc1[,1]<vol[,1]
for ( idx in seq_along(volinp1)[ 1 ] ) {
volyrdc1[ , idx ] < vol[ , idx1 ] + volinp1[idx] * wt
}
volyrdc1
My final matrix in 'volyrdc1' (kind of transition matrix model).
Now, what I want to do is to calculate when the colsum<colSums(volyrdc1)
reaches a certain value and I want to get the index of the element in the
'colsum' vector at that point. For e.g. when colsum[colsum>=18] ? It will give
a series of cases where the condition is true. But I want index of the element
immediately when the condition is met. In this case, the answer I want is 140
(colsum[29] returns both value (18.63) and the character ("140") attributing
the index). Actually, in my case 140 is year (age) when the 'colsum' becomes
>=18. At is point it would be great if I can calculate when 'colsum' levels
off (up to two decimal place)? The answer is: 305 and at that point
colsum==45.37.
I also want to calculate what should be the value in volini[1,1] to get a
certain value in 'colsum' at a certain year (age)(vector element index
explained earlier)? For e.g. I want to find out that what should be the value
in volini[1,1] if I want colsum==18 at 100(charater attributing colsum[21])?
The answer is: 15910 and the 'volini' matrix will look like:
volini<matrix(c(15910,0,0,0,0),nrow=5,ncol=1)
Any pointer, suggestions,... will be gratefully acknowledged.
P.S. Can you please suggest me any effective R programming book that describe
core elements of R programming?
Thanks in advance.

Halim

Hi Halim,
For the first two questions, you may try:
colsum1 < colSums(volyrdc1)
min(which(colsum1>=18))
#[1] 29
#or
head(which(colsum1>=18),1)
#140
# 29
colsum1[substr(colsum1,6,7)=="00"] ## this is not very clear
305
45.37004
#or
colsum1[colsum1>=18][substr(colsum1[colsum1>=18],6,7)=="00"]
305
45.37004
#because
sprintf("%.4f",colsum1[colsum1>=18])
colsum1[colsum1>=18][gsub(".*\\.\\d{2}","",sprintf("%.4f",colsum1[colsum1>=18]))=="00"]
180 305

7, 7, 7)
I've calculated the following matrices vol and volyrdc1 (obviously with the
help of Jeff and Arun):
#Blank matrices for dumping final values
vol < matrix( NA, nrow=5, ncol=length(volinp1))
volyrdc1<matrix(NA, nrow=5,ncol=length(volinp1),dimnames=
list(c("DC1","DC2","DC3","DC4","DC5"),c(seq(0,500,5))))
vol[ , 1 ] < dcmat %*% (volini+(volinp1[1]*wt))
wt<matrix(c(1,0,0,0,0),nrow=5)
for ( idx in seq_along(volinp1)[ 1 ] ) {
vol[ , idx ] < dcmat %*% ( vol[ , idx1 ] + volinp1[idx] * wt )
}
vol
volyrdc1[,1]<vol[,1]
for ( idx in seq_along(volinp1)[ 1 ] ) {
volyrdc1[ , idx ] < vol[ , idx1 ] + volinp1[idx] * wt
}
volyrdc1
My final matrix in 'volyrdc1' (kind of transition matrix model).
Now, what I want to do is to calculate when the colsum<colSums(volyrdc1)
reaches a certain value and I want to get the index of the element in the
'colsum' vector at that point. For e.g. when colsum[colsum>=18] ? It will give
a series of cases where the condition is true. But I want index of the element
immediately when the condition is met. In this case, the answer I want is 140
(colsum[29] returns both value (18.63) and the character ("140") attributing
the index). Actually, in my case 140 is year (age) when the 'colsum' becomes
>=18. At is point it would be great if I can calculate when 'colsum' levels
off (up to two decimal place)? The answer is: 305 and at that point
colsum==45.37.
I also want to calculate what should be the value in volini[1,1] to get a
certain value in 'colsum' at a certain year (age)(vector element index
explained earlier)? For e.g. I want to find out that what should be the value
in volini[1,1] if I want colsum==18 at 100(charater attributing colsum[21])?
The answer is: 15910 and the 'volini' matrix will look like:
volini<matrix(c(15910,0,0,0,0),nrow=5,ncol=1)
Any pointer, suggestions,... will be gratefully acknowledged.
P.S. Can you please suggest me any effective R programming book that describe
core elements of R programming?
Thanks in advance.

Halim

Hi Arun,
Thank you very much for your kind response. Sorry for my delayed response.
Your solutions for the first two questions are quite good for my purpose.
Since nobody responded, can you please have a look at the 3rd question? It'll
be my great help, if you can give me suggestions.
Regards,
Halim

After paging through this thread, I was unable to determine what the "3rd question" might have been. Why not post a question that restates the question or specifically refer to a date and time for the posting where the "3rd question" is to be found. Also post data and code that will construct the intermediates that might have been developed in the "1st and 2nd questions" and might be needed as input for a solution. Please use dput() to post reproducible examples.
