get information on Cholesky factors

Calling Sequence

[OK, n, cnz] = taucs_chinfo(C_ptr)



a pointer to a Cholesky factorization


a scalar boolean


a scalar integer


a scalar integer


This function may be used to know basic information about the Cholesky factor created with taucs_chfact :

  • first OK is %t if C_ptr is a valid pointer to an Cholesky factorization (and %f else)

  • if OK is %t then n and cnz are respectively the matrix order and the number of non zeros elements in the supernodal structure storing C ; if OK is %f, n and cnz are set to the void matrix [].


Due to the supernodal structure used for C, cnz is larger than the exact number of non-zeros elements in C (and so this cnz is a mesure of the memory used internally). To get the exact cnz you may retrieve the Cholesky factor with taucs_chget then apply the nnz scilab function (see the 2d example in taucs_chget).
