Description zhao wu 2013-12-13 17:52:37 UTC
The implementation of binary operations such as += and -= in Sparse module is very inefficient. When the sparse vector/matrix dimension is big, it causes out of memory.  += and -= should just modify the original sparse vector/matrix in place without allocating new memory.

I'm not sure how exactly you intend to perform this in-place if the non-zero patterns do not match. If you are certain that they match, you can access the values directly with a Map on .valuePtr()
