So I still think that we should make > Tridiagonalization internal. Actually Tridiagonalization has nothing to do with BandMatrix or TridiagonalMatrix. Internally the Tridiagonalization class stores a dense matrix plus a vector of householder reflector coefficients. The dense matrix stores the tridiagonal matrix into its diagonal and subdiagonal and the rest of the lower triangular part is used to store the householder vectors. So with such a storage format, Tridiagonalization cannot exploit our TridiagonalMatrix class. In the future we'll need a kind of TridiagonalView inheriting a common base class with TridiagonalMatrix, but that's for the future. gael > Then I don't have much of an opinion about Hessenberg but if we don't > have a public Tridiag class, what's the point of having a public > Hessenberg class.
