Eigen::MatrixPower< MatrixType > Class Template Reference

Detailed Description

template<typename MatrixType>
class Eigen::MatrixPower< MatrixType >

Class for computing matrix powers.

Template Parameters
MatrixTypetype of the base, expected to be an instantiation of the Matrix class template.

This class is capable of computing real/complex matrices raised to an arbitrary real power. Meanwhile, it saves the result of Schur decomposition if an non-integral power has even been calculated. Therefore, if you want to compute multiple (>= 2) matrix powers for the same matrix, using the class directly is more efficient than calling MatrixBase::pow().

Example:

#include <unsupported/Eigen/MatrixFunctions>
#include <iostream>
using namespace Eigen;
int main()
{
Matrix4cd A = Matrix4cd::Random();
std::cout << "The matrix A is:\n" << A << "\n\n"
"A^3.1 is:\n" << Apow(3.1) << "\n\n"
"A^3.3 is:\n" << Apow(3.3) << "\n\n"
"A^3.7 is:\n" << Apow(3.7) << "\n\n"
"A^3.9 is:\n" << Apow(3.9) << std::endl;
return 0;
}

Output:

The matrix A is:
 (-0.211234,0.680375)   (0.10794,-0.444451)   (0.434594,0.271423) (-0.198111,-0.686642)
