RsparseMatrix-class {Matrix}R Documentation

Class "RsparseMatrix" of Sparse Matrices in Column-compressed Form

Description

The "RsparseMatrix" class is the virtual class of all sparse matrices coded in sorted compressed row-oriented form. Since it is a virtual class, no objects may be created from it. See showClass("RsparseMatrix") for its subclasses.

Slots

j:

Object of class "integer" of length nnzero (number of non-zero elements). These are the row numbers for each non-zero element in the matrix.

p:

Object of class "integer" of pointers, one for each row, to the initial (zero-based) index of elements in the row.

Dim, Dimnames:

inherited from the superclass, see sparseMatrix.

Extends

Class "sparseMatrix", directly. Class "Matrix", by class "sparseMatrix".

Methods

Only few methods are defined currently on purpose, since we rather use the CsparseMatrix in Matrix. Recently, more methods were added but beware that these typically do not return "RsparseMatrix" results, but rather Csparse* or Tsparse* ones.
