Solving u_t = A(u_x +u_y) in MATLAB

I would like to solve the following equation:
u_t =A(u_x + u_y)
Where A is a matrix with size equal to u. I use MATLAB to do the computation.
I want the scheme to be explicit in time and implicit in space.
Before I adress this equation I will first make it a step more simple.
Lets say we want to solve
u_t = a(u_x +u_y)
Where a is a scalar.
Rewriting this equation gives:
u*-dt a(u*_x +u*_y) = u^n
We can write this equation as a matrix product in the following way:
(I+dt a(D2D))u* =u^n
Where I is the identity matrix and D2D is the matrix approximating -d/dx -d/dy. We would this D2D matrix in the following way.
We define the difference matrix D (approximating -d/dn, 1D)
spdiags([1 1 -1 ;ones(n-2,1)*[1 0 -1]; 1 1 -1],-1:1,n,n)'/(2*h); (Neumann BCs)
And we can create D2D by:
The full matrix I+dt a(D2D) is than
kron(speye(nx-1),speye(ny))+dt*a*kron(speye(ny),D(nx-1,hx,2,1))+kron(D(ny,hy,3,3),speye(nx-1))) (don't mind the arguments in D, first one denotes size)
Alright, well this works. But now we make it a little bit more difficult, namely we change a to be a matrix instead of a scalar
u_t =A(u_x + u_y)
The matrix equation becomes
(I+dt A(D2D))u* =u^n
Now we take that nx=ny=10
Now A is a matrix of 9x10 and D2D has size 90x90 and same for I (90x90).
I need to blow matrix A up in such a way that it's also square with a size (90x90), however if I agian use the kron command
kron(speye(10),A) than the size is 100x90. If matrix A would be square than a multiplication like this would certainly work, but alas it is not.
If anyone has a clue on how to do this I would love to hear it.
