[eigen] Re: Eigen tensor module

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.tuxfamily.org/eigen Archives ]

Hello Tom
I would also favor ranking to be a runtime thing : that s also the choice made by xtensor and ArrayFire :
Now, are eigen::tensor imposing ranking to be template/compil-time for performance reasons ?

Subject: [eigen] Eigen tensor module

Is there any way to give the rank of an Eigen tensor at run time, or are there any plans to make this a dynamic run-time parameter? The tensor module would be extremely useful for me if not for the limitation that the rank needs to be specified as compile-time template parameter. I am unable to use Eigen tensors for a generic n-dimensional application where I don’t know the tensor rank in advance.

Please let me know if I’m missing something or if there are any future plans to change this? The boost tensor module, for example, has dynamic ranks and sizes:
