Yes, you're right. In fact, it's just an adaptation of a matlab command and the author advises using N^4 replications that's why it's the default in the function. The bistochastic matrix is not my subject of interest, but I need it to perform some random tranformation of a vector of incomes.

I am sorry, I can't figure out what your function is doing. Why do you have N^4 in the argument? A matrix should have N rows and N columns, that is, it should have length N^2.

The function returns a vector, not a matrix.

There is no example of its use.

I am guessing that your function somewhere uses a bistochastic matrix as an intermediate calculation. I recommend isolating the bistochastic matrix function from the larger function that you have constructed.
