printMatEqn: Print Matrices or Matrix Operations Side by Side

Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) See Also Examples

View source: R/printMatEqn.R

Description

This function is designed to print a collection of matrices, vectors, character strings and matrix expressions side by side. A typical use is to illustrate matrix equations in a compact and comprehensible way.

Usage

1
2
printMatEqn(..., space = 1, tol = sqrt(.Machine$double.eps),
  fractions = FALSE)

Arguments

...

matrices and character operations to be passed and printed to the console. These can include named arguments, character string operation symbols (e.g., "+")

space

amount of blank spaces to place around operations such as "+", "-", "=", etc

tol

tolerance for rounding

fractions

logical; if TRUE, try to express non-integers as rational numbers

Value

NULL; A formatted sequence of matrices and matrix operations is printed to the console

x <- c(0.5, 3.7, 2.3)
y <- c(0.7, -1.2)
b <- A %*% x - y

printMatEqn(A, "*", x, "-", y, "=", b)
printMatEqn(A, "*", x, "-", y, "=", b, fractions=TRUE)
