Description Jérémie 2016-05-26 10:14:24 UTC

On Eigen's latest stable version (3.2.8), I am encountering a signed integer overflow when using Sparse / Sparse products with pruning, namely on the following line:

  double ratioColRes = double(estimated_nnz_prod)/double(lhs.rows()*rhs.cols());

And then the problem reported at the exectution:

  SparseSparseProductWithPruning.h:51:68: runtime error: signed integer overflow: 56224 * 56224 cannot be represented in type 'int [3]'

Now, I don't know what this 'int [3]' means, but this product would fit in a 'long long' or a double, so I guess the overflow could be avoided.

Thanks for the report, I've simply moved the conversion to double before the product.
