I want to perform an element wise multiplication, to multiply two lists together by value in Python, like we can do it in Matlab.

This is how I would do it in Matlab.

```
a = [1,2,3,4]
b = [2,3,4,5]
a .* b = [2, 6, 12, 20]
```

A list comprehension would give 16 list entries, for every combination `x * y`

of `x`

from `a`

and `y`

from `b`

. Unsure of how to map this.

If anyone is interested why, I have a dataset, and want to multiply it by `Numpy.linspace(1.0, 0.5, num=len(dataset)) =)`

.

Use a list comprehension mixed with

`zip()`

:.
