Arne Plöse commented on MATH574:

Please check all other Vector implemenations as well (ArrayFieldvector seems to have the same
bub)
> Remove the restriction that the two vectors in RealVector.outerProduct have to be of
the same size.

> Issue Type: Improvement

> Environment: All.

> Currently RealMatrix M = x.outerProduct(y) throws an exception if x and y are different
sizes. This is as documented in the Javadoc but not what one expects mathematically (see
e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outer_product)  the vectors can be any size.
> So please remove the restriction that the vectors should be the same size, as this doesn't
seem to be necessary either mathematically or in terms of the implementation.
