X is an n x K non-singular full rank matrix where n > K
Is the result of this matrix operation an idempotent matrix? (It seems to be when I do it in stata.)
Given the properties below, I am told it is possible to express the trace of the matrix that results from the above operation in terms of n and K. But I have been unable to figure out how. Can someone give me a clue?
(where A,B, and C are non-singular square matrices)
