say, where A*=pAp1. If we have, for period 1, an intermed-
late output vector, u say, an intermediate input vector, v say,
and a vector of total outputs, q say, then

We can make an initial estimate, u, say, of » by premultiply-
ing q by A*. Thus

In general uy#u, but we can force an equality by an appro-
priate multiplication of the rows of A*. Thus

[f we regard the term in brackets as an estimate of A, it can
be seen that it satisfies the row conditions but not the column
conditions. These can be satisfied by a substitution for A from
(IV. 54) into (IV. 52), followed by an appropriate multiplica-
tion of the columns of A*. Thus

[f we regard the term in brackets as a revised estimate of A,
we can see that it now satisfies the column conditions, but not,
in general, the row conditions. We can, however, repeat the
cycle of operations until we obtain convergence with both the
