Shape of a matrix
I am using an evolutionary fitting method which provides the inverse Hessian up to a constant, i.e.
$\displaystyle \mathbf{C} = const \quad \mathbf{H}^{1}$
The 2norm of $\displaystyle \mathbf{C}$ is very small, e.g. $\displaystyle 10^{20}$, but the eigenvalues of $\displaystyle \mathbf{C}$ are relative to the eigenvalues of $\displaystyle \mathbf{H}$. I was reading a proof which had to do with scaling a matrix via eigenvalues in the form
$\displaystyle factor=\frac{\sum_j^p f(x) \lambda_j}{\sum_j ^p f(x)}$
I am working with loglikelihood, so $\displaystyle f(x)$ would have to be $\displaystyle \log[L(\beta)]$ in the above equation. Firstly, is there a known way to obtain $\displaystyle \mathbf{H}^{1}$ by rescaling with the eigenvalues of $\displaystyle \mathbf{C}$, or do I need to calculate loglikehood for each record, sum them, and then solve for $\displaystyle \mathbf{H}^{1}$?
