dMatrix-class: (Virtual) Class "dMatrix" of "double" Matrices In Matrix: Sparse and Dense Matrix Classes and Methods

Description

The `dMatrix` class is a virtual class contained by all actual classes of numeric matrices in the Matrix package. Similarly, all the actual classes of logical matrices inherit from the `lMatrix` class.

Slots

Common to all matrix object in the package:

`Dim`:

Object of class `"integer"` - the dimensions of the matrix - must be an integer vector with exactly two non-negative values.

`Dimnames`:

list of length two; each component containing NULL or a `character` vector length equal the corresponding `Dim` element.

Methods

There are (relatively simple) group methods (see, e.g., `Arith`)

Arith

`signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "dMatrix")`: ...

Arith

`signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "numeric")`: ...

Arith

`signature(e1 = "numeric", e2 = "dMatrix")`: ...

Math

`signature(x = "dMatrix")`: ...

Math2

`signature(x = "dMatrix", digits = "numeric")`: this group contains `round()` and `signif()`.

Compare

`signature(e1 = "numeric", e2 = "dMatrix")`: ...

Compare

`signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "numeric")`: ...

Compare

`signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "dMatrix")`: ...

Summary

`signature(x = "dMatrix")`: The `"Summary"` group contains the seven functions `max()`, `min()`, `range()`, `prod()`, `sum()`, `any()`, and `all()`.

The following methods are also defined for all double matrices:

coerce

`signature(from = "dMatrix", to = "matrix")`: ...

expm

`signature(x = "dMatrix")`: computes the “Matrix Exponential”, see `expm`.

zapsmall

`signature(x = "dMatrix")`: ...

The following methods are defined for all logical matrices:

which

`signature(x = "lsparseMatrix")` and many other subclasses of `"lMatrix"`: as the base function `which(x, arr.ind)` returns the indices of the `TRUE` entries in `x`; if `arr.ind` is true, as a 2-column matrix of row and column indices. Since Matrix version 1.2-9, if `useNames` is true, as by default, with `dimnames`, the same as `base::which`.

The nonzero-pattern matrix class `nMatrix`, which can be used to store non-`NA` `logical` matrices even more compactly.

The numeric matrix classes `dgeMatrix`, `dgCMatrix`, and `Matrix`.

`drop0(x, tol=1e-10)` is sometimes preferable to (and more efficient than) `zapsmall(x, digits=10)`.

Examples

 ```1 2 3 4 5 6 7``` ``` showClass("dMatrix") set.seed(101) round(Matrix(rnorm(28), 4,7), 2) M <- Matrix(rlnorm(56, sd=10), 4,14) (M. <- zapsmall(M)) table(as.logical(M. == 0)) ```
