SPRSAX

SPRSAX

The SPRSAX function takes a row-indexed sparse array created by the SPRSIN function and multiplies it by an n-element vector to its right.

Examples

; Begin by creating an array A:
A = [[ 5.0, 0.0, 0.0], \$
[ 3.0, -2.0, 0.0], \$
[ 4.0, -1.0, 0.0]]
; Define the right-hand vector:
X = [1.0, 2.0, -1.0]
; Convert to sparse format, then multiply by X:
result = SPRSAX(SPRSIN(A),X)
; Print the result:
PRINT, result

IDL prints:

5.00000     -1.00000      2.00000

Syntax

Result = SPRSAX( A, X [, /DOUBLE] )

Return Value

Returns a n-element vector.

Arguments

A

A row-indexed sparse array created by the SPRSIN function.

Note: If SPRSAX is complex then only the real part is used for the computation.

X

An n-element right hand vector.

Keywords

DOUBLE

Set this keyword to force the computation to be done in double-precision arithmetic.
