Re: [eigen] [PATCH] Toeplitz matrix specialization

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]


Thanks for your patch.
We are in the process of rethinking completely how we deal with
special matrices.
The first kind of such matrices in Eigen was diagonal matrices.
Then, Mauro came by with a patch for tridiagonal matrices, showing
that we need to rethink that completely.
We're going to decide for a general approach to this subject very
soon, and then it'll be a perfect time to add Toeplitz matrices.
But it's very good that you sent this now as it gives us one more
example to keep in mind when deciding for an approach for special
