Description

Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form new("dpoMatrix", ...) or from crossprod applied to an "dgeMatrix" object.

Slots

uplo:

Object of class "character". Must be either "U", for upper triangular, and "L", for lower triangular.

x:

Object of class "numeric". The numeric values that constitute the matrix, stored in column-major order.

Dim:

Object of class "integer". The dimensions of the matrix which must be a two-element vector of non-negative integers.

Dimnames:

inherited from class "Matrix"

factors:

Object of class "list". A named list of factorizations that have been computed for the matrix.

sd:

(for "corMatrix") a numeric vector of length n containing the (original) sqrt(var(.)) entries which allow reconstruction of a covariance matrix from the correlation matrix.

Extends

Class "dsyMatrix", directly.
Classes "dgeMatrix", "symmetricMatrix", and many more by class "dsyMatrix".

Methods

chol

signature(x = "dpoMatrix"): Returns (and stores) the Cholesky decomposition of x, see chol.

determinant

signature(x = "dpoMatrix"): Returns the determinant of x, via chol(x), see above.

rcond

signature(x = "dpoMatrix", norm = "character"): Returns (and stores) the reciprocal of the condition number of x. The norm can be "O" for the one-norm (the default) or "I" for the infinity-norm. For symmetric matrices the result does not depend on the norm.

solve

signature(a = "dpoMatrix", b = "....")

, and

solve

signature(a = "dppMatrix", b = "....")

work via the Cholesky composition, see also the Matrix solve-methods.

Arith

signature(e1 = "dpoMatrix", e2 = "numeric") (and quite a few other signatures): The result of (“elementwise” defined) arithmetic operations is typically not positive-definite anymore. The only exceptions, currently, are multiplications, divisions or additions with positive length(.) == 1 numbers (or logicals).

h6 <- Hilbert(6)

str(h6)
h6 * 27720 # is ``integer''
solve(h6)
str(hp6 <- as(h6, "dppMatrix"))

### Note that  as(*, "corMatrix")  *scales* the matrix
(ch6 <- as(h6, "corMatrix"))
stopifnot(all.equal(h6 * 27720, round(27720 * h6), tolerance = 1e-14),
          all.equal(ch6@sd^(-2), 2*(1:6)-1, tolerance= 1e-12))
chch <- chol(ch6)
stopifnot(identical(chch, ch6@factors$Cholesky),
          all(abs(crossprod(chch) - ch6) < 1e-10))
