# Dense matrices over the Real Double Field using NumPy¶

Dense matrices over the Real Double Field using NumPy

EXAMPLES:

sage: b=Mat(RDF,2,3).basis()
sage: b[0]
[1.0 0.0 0.0]
[0.0 0.0 0.0]


We deal with the case of zero rows or zero columns:

sage: m = MatrixSpace(RDF,0,3)
sage: m.zero_matrix()
[]


TESTS:

sage: a = matrix(RDF,2,range(4), sparse=False)
sage: TestSuite(a).run()
sage: MatrixSpace(RDF,0,0).zero_matrix().inverse()
[]


AUTHORS:

• Jason Grout (2008-09): switch to NumPy backend, factored out the Matrix_double_dense class
• Josh Kantor
• William Stein: many bug fixes and touch ups.
class sage.matrix.matrix_real_double_dense.Matrix_real_double_dense

Class that implements matrices over the real double field. These are supposed to be fast matrix operations using C doubles. Most operations are implemented using numpy which will call the underlying BLAS on the system.

EXAMPLES:

sage: m = Matrix(RDF, [[1,2],[3,4]])
sage: m**2
[ 7.0 10.0]
[15.0 22.0]
sage: n= m^(-1); n
[-2.0  1.0]
[ 1.5 -0.5]


To compute eigenvalues the use the functions left_eigenvectors or right_eigenvectors

sage: p,e = m.right_eigenvectors()


the result of eigen is a pair (p,e), where p is a list of eigenvalues and the e is a matrix whose columns are the eigenvectors.

To solve a linear system Ax = b where A = [[1,2],[3,4]] and b = [5,6].

sage: b = vector(RDF,[5,6])
sage: m.solve_right(b)
(-4.0, 4.5)
