Description Henrik Friberg 2014-06-27 04:34:14 UTC
The following does not compile:
Matrix3d A;
RowVector3d bT, xT;

A << 1, 2, 3,
     4, 5, 6,
     7, 8, 9;

bT << 1, 2, 3;

xT = A.triangularView<Upper>().solve<OnTheRight>(bT);  // WORKS FINE!
printf("(%g, %g, %g)", xT(0), xT(1), xT(2));

SparseMatrix<double> spA = A.sparseView();
spA.triangularView<Upper>().solve<OnTheRight>(bT);  // COMPILE ERROR!

SparseTriangularView::solve accepts neither <OnTheLeft> nor <OnTheRight> as template argument, but neglecting the argument compiles fine..

Most likely this will not be implemented without bug 99. With bug 99, we might directly make things like
  xt = bT * spA.triangularView<Upper>().inverse();
do "the right thing". You can workaround using:
or, if possible, model your matrices and vectors the other way around.
