This function should be used if you to expand a variable across columns and not rows. When passing a vector of indexes to MILPModel variable, it creates a new row for each vector element. With colwise you can create columns instead. Please see the examples below.

## Examples

```
if (FALSE) {
# vectors create matrix rows
# x[1, 1]
# x[2, 1]
# x[3, 1]
x[1:3, 1]
# colwise() creates columns per row
# 1 * x[1, 1] + 2 * x[1, 2] + 3 * x[1, 3]
colwise(1, 2, 3) * x[1, colwise(1, 2, 3)]
# or you have multiple rows and columns and different coefficients
# 1 * x[1, 1] + 2 * x[1, 2] + 3 * x[1, 3]
# 4 * x[2, 1] + 5 * x[2, 2] + 6 * x[1, 3]
colwise(1:6) * x[1:2, colwise(1:3)]
# in the example above, the colwise vector multiplied with the variable
# has an element per row and column
# in general, it can be a multiple of number of columns
# you can also combine the two
# x[1, 1]
# x[2, 1] + x[2, 2]
# x[3, 1] + x[3, 2] + x[3, 2]
x[1:3, colwise(1, 1:2, 1:3)]
}
