[R] Matrix multiplication

I need to have all elements of a matrix multiplied by a weight before 
being post-multiplied by itself, as shown in the forst block of codes 
below. I can also multiply the matrix by the square root of the weight 
and then take the outer product.

Actually, what I need is this. Denote each row of the matrix by a row 
vector as xi and each element of the weighting vector as wi. Then, I 
need the sum of wi * t(xi) %*% xi over i.

Any suggestion for a compact approach would be appreciated.

w<-1:10; w
a<-matrix(rpois(20,2),nrow=10); a

a<-matrix(rpois(20,2),nrow=10); a
a<-sqrt(w)*a; a
