Re: [eigen] Adapting code from OpenCV (a seemingly much faster SVD)

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

OpenCV recently scrapped its own linear algebra code in favor of LAPACK. It didn't make much sense for OpenCV to have its own versions. I doubt the SVD was doing anything terribly fancy; it probably got its speed edge from hand-optimized loop unrolling, etc.

The internal implementations of OpenCV functions are thoroughly evil due to the lack of support for generic programming in C. Porting code from it I think would not be easier than writing from scratch.

Benoit, you are much closer to the core math than I am and I think that its not really a good idea port the OpenCV code - at least not for me. :)

OpenCV does not
- support fixed size specializations
- handle complex numbers

I will simply send you the code I have so you may take a look at it. As I said before, the original code is gone from OpenCV. At least I cannot find it in the SVN and the old CVS repository seems to be down.
