Hello all,


I am trying to figure out the most efficient way to get the sum of the
product of two vectors where id != id.




X = array([1,2,3])

Y = array([1,2,3])


Z = (1*2) + (1*3) + (2*1) + (2*3) + (3*1) + (3*2) = 22


I could obviously do this with loops, but I was wondering if there is a
version of multiply that could be used... or a form of vectorize.  Any
ideas would be greatly appreciated. 

Isn't this just equivalent to:

sum(X) * sum(Y) - dot(X, Y)


If so, I would just use that.
