ddiMatrix-class: Class "ddiMatrix" of Diagonal Numeric Matrices

Description Objects from the Class Slots Extends Methods See Also Examples

Description

The class "ddiMatrix" of numerical diagonal matrices. Note that diagonal matrices now extend sparseMatrix, whereas they did extend dense matrices earlier.

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("ddiMatrix", ...) but typically rather via Diagonal.

Slots

x:

numeric vector. For an n * n matrix, the x slot is of length n or 0, depending on the diag slot:

diag:

"character" string, either "U" or "N" where "U" denotes unit-diagonal, i.e., identity matrices.

Dim,Dimnames:

matrix dimension and dimnames, see the Matrix class description.

Extends

Class "diagonalMatrix", directly. Class "dMatrix", directly. Class "sparseMatrix", indirectly, see showClass("ddiMatrix").

Methods

signature(x = "ddiMatrix", y = "ddiMatrix"): ...

## slightly larger in internal size:
str(as(d2, "sparseMatrix"))

M <- Matrix(cbind(1,2:4))
M %*% d2 #> `fast' multiplication

chol(d2) # trivial
stopifnot(is(cd2 <- chol(d2), "ddiMatrix"),
          all.equal(cd2@x, c(sqrt(10),1)))
