Bug 784

Summary: assigning products to traingularView does not warn for size mismatch
Product: Eigen Reporter: Jitse Niesen <jitseniesen>
Component: Core - matrix productsAssignee: Nobody <eigen.nobody>
Status: CONFIRMED ---    
Severity: Unit Test Required CC: chtz
Priority: Low    
Version: 3.2   
Hardware: All   
OS: All   

Description Jitse Niesen 2014-04-04 17:34:52 UTC
Test code:
  MatrixXd m1, m2;
  m2.triangularView<Lower>() = m1*m1;

This should warn that the size of m2 is different from the size of m1*m1 (unless compiled with -DNDEBUG) but it does not. Instead it produces invalid reads when run under valgrind.

Note that the product is necessary, "m2.triangularView<Lower>() = m1" without the product does produce a warning.
Comment 1 Christoph Hertzberg 2014-04-04 17:51:11 UTC
I added an assertion

That fixes the immediate problem, we should add a regression-test and transplant to 3.2 (therefore I leave this bug open for now)
Comment 2 Christoph Hertzberg 2014-06-15 19:41:46 UTC
I'm actually not sure anymore, whether my patch might be too strict. E.g., shall the following work?

  MatrixXd m1(4,3), m2(3,3);
  m1.triangularView<Upper>() = m2*m2;

There is always the workaround of inserting a .topRows(3) after m1.
