Re: [eigen] Bug in the Cholesky/Core module?

Quoting Timothy Hunter <tjhunter@xxxxxxxxxxxx>:

Just a side note: the eval() here is in fact redundant (but it also does not slow down things, it just does nothing).

In Eigen, the Product expression has the EvalBeforeAssigning flag. This means that whenever you do a = b*c; it is equivalent to a = (b*c).eval(); . So it is perfectly safe to do a = a*a; as there are no aliasing problems.

When you call eval() on a matrix (for example on an expression that had already been evaluated), it does nothing and just returns a const reference.
