**Function:**
kronprod - Kronecker product of matrices and/or vectors

**Calling sequence:
**

**Parameters:**

**A, B, ... **
- matrices, vectors or lists

**Description:**

This function computes the Kronecker product (outer product) of vectors and matrices.

If all arguments are vectors or lists, the result is a vector, otherwise it is a matrix. Vectors are considered to be column vectors. For the row vector corresponding to vector or list
**v**
, use
**transpose(v)**
. Thus for the outer product of vectors
**u**
and
**v**
in the form of a matrix with rows corresponding to the entries of
**v**
and columns corresponding to the entries of
**u**
, use
**kronprod(transpose(u), v)**
.

In general each row of the result corresponds to a choice of a row from each of the arguments, and each column of the result corresponds to a choice of a column from each of the arguments.

This function is part of the Maple Advisor Database library, and must be loaded before use by the command
**readlib(kronprod);**
.

**Examples:**

`> `
**readlib(kronprod):**

`> `
**kronprod(transpose([a,b]),[c,d]); **

`> `
**kronprod([a,b],[c,d]);**

`> `
**kronprod(matrix([[a,b],[c,d]]),matrix([[e,f,g],[h,i,j]]));**

`> `
**kronprod([a,b],[c,d],[e,f]);**
