InfinitySparseMatrix-class: Objects for sparse matching problems.

Description Slots Author(s) See Also

Description

InfinitySparseMatrix is a special class of distance specifications. Finite entries indicate possible matches, while infinite entries indicated non-allowed matches. This data type can be more space efficient for sparse matching problems. Usually, users will create distance specification using match_on, caliper, or exactMatch. The ordering of units in an InfinitySparseMatrix is not guaranteed to be maintained after subsetting and/or other operations are performed.

cols

vector of integers corresponding to control units

rows

vector of integers corresponding to treated units

dimension

integer vector containing the number of treated and control units, in that order

call
