Subject: Re: [ublas] Problem with nested products

thanks to everyone for the information! As I said, I see that I've got NO idea
about linear algebra systems. And I honestly don't see any hint on

that nested products are prohibited/impossible. It just says they are not so

The suggested solution works. But what is temp_type supposed to be? Anything
else besides matrix<double> (that's what I'm multiplying)? Is there any list
which temporary types should be used? Or am I thinking too complicated?

Have a nice Christmas!
