ROOT::Math::CholeskyDecompGenDim< F > Class Template Reference

template<class F>
class ROOT::Math::CholeskyDecompGenDim< F >

class to compute the Cholesky decomposition of a matrix

class to compute the Cholesky decomposition of a symmetric positive definite matrix when the dimensionality of the problem is not known at compile time

provides routines to check if the decomposition succeeded (i.e. if matrix is positive definite and non-singular), to solve a linear system for the given matrix and to obtain its inverse

the actual functionality is implemented in templated helper classes which have specializations for dimensions N = 1 to 6 to achieve a gain in speed for common matrix sizes

usage example:

// let m be a symmetric positive definite SMatrix (use type float
// for internal computations, matrix size is 4x4)
CholeskyDecompGenDim<float> decomp(4, m);
// check if the decomposition succeeded
if (!decomp) {
std::cerr << "decomposition failed!" << std::endl;
} else {
// let rhs be a vector; we seek a vector x such that m * x = rhs
decomp.Solve(rhs);
// rhs now contains the solution we are looking for
// obtain the inverse of m, put it into m itself
decomp.Invert(m);
}

◆ CholeskyDecompGenDim() [1/2]

template<class F >
template<class M >
ROOT::Math::CholeskyDecompGenDim< F >::CholeskyDecompGenDim ( unsigned  N,
const M &  m 
)
inline

perform a Cholesky decomposition

perfrom a Cholesky decomposition of a symmetric positive definite matrix m

this is the constructor to uses with an SMatrix (and objects that behave like an SMatrix in terms of using operator()(int i, int j) for access to elements)
