Thanks for your help, folks.  

The sum of (outer product less the diagonal) works.  

(In the original post, I guess I should have specified 'pair-wise product' of two vectors to be clearer).

folks,is there a clever way to compute the sum of the product of two vectors such that the common indices are not multiplied together?i.e. if i have vectors X, Y, how can i computeSum  (X[i] * Y[j])i != jwhere i != jalso, what if i wantedSum (X[i] * Y[j] * R[i, j])i != jwhere R is a matrix?thanks, mailing list do read the posting guide provide commented, minimal, self-contained, reproducible code.
