Re: [eigen] inconsistency in fast eigen decomposition

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

Could a unit test be added? Maybe just take his matrix, decompose,
reconstruct original matrix, compare. My understanding is that before
your fix, eigen would have given a completely wrong reconstructed
matrix, so just a fuzzy compare at default test precision would be
good enough.
