This function converts a matrix to COO format and
exponentiates it via the EXPOKIT dgexpv function
(designed for sparse matrices) and wrapper functions
wrapalldgexpv_
around dgexpv.

Qmat 
an input Q transition matrix 
t 
a time value to exponentiate by 
inputprobs_for_fast 
If NULL (default), the full
probability matrix (Pmat) is returned. However, the full
speed of EXPOKIT on sparse matrices will be exploited if
inputprobs_for_fast=c(starting probabilities). In this
case these starting probabilities are input to

transpose_needed 
If TRUE (default), matrix will be transposed (apparently EXPOKIT needs the input matrix to be transposed compared to normal) 
transform_to_coo_TF 
Should the matrix be tranposed
to COO? COO format is required for EXPOKIT's
sparsematrix functions (like dmexpv and unlike the
padmrelated functions. Default TRUE; if FALSE, user must
put a COOformated matrix in 
coo_n 
If a COO matrix is input, 
anorm 

check_for_0_rows 
If TRUE or a numeric value, the input Qmat is checked for allzero rows, since these will crash the FORTRAN wrapalldmexpv function. A small nonzero value set to check_for_0_rows or the default (0.0000000000001) is input to offdiagonal cells in the row (and the diagonal value is normalized), which should fix the problem. 
NOTE: DGEXPV vs. DMEXPV. According to the EXPOKIT
documentation, DGEXPV should be faster than DMEXPV,
however DMEXPV runs an accuracy check appropriate for
Markov chains, which is not done in DGEXPV.
From EXPOKIT:
* The method used is based on Krylov subspace
projection
* techniques and the matrix under
consideration interacts only
* via the external
routine 'matvec' performing the matrixvector
* product (matrixfree method).
*
* This [DMEXPV, not DGEXPV  NJM] is a customised
version for Markov Chains. This means that a
*
check is done within this code to ensure that the
resulting vector
* w is a probability vector,
i.e., w must have all its components
* in
[0,1], with sum equal to 1. This check is done at some
expense
* and the user may try DGEXPV which is
cheaper since it ignores
* probability
constraints.
I (NJM) have not noticed a difference between the outputs of these two functions, but it might occur with large matrices.
COO (coordinated list) format is a compressed format that
is required for EXPOKIT's sparsematrix functions (like
dgexpv and unlike EXPOKIT's padmrelated functions. COO
format is described here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sparse_matrix#Coordinate_list_.28COO.29
If Qmat
is NULL (default), a default matrix is
input.
tmpoutmat
the output matrix. wrapalldgexpv_
produces additional output relating to accuracy of the
output matrix etc.; these can be by a direct call of
dgexpv.
