Description Angelos Mantzaflaris 2016-11-30 11:17:07 UTC
The compressed format of Eigen::SparseMatrix uses memory


For very sparse matrices with many zero columns (or rows) this becomes not usable.
I am interested in a compressed format with memory usage


What would be a good way to implement it ? I was thinking of using a sparse storage (i.e. kind of a SparseVector) for each column (or row) of the matrix. Would that be compatible with Eigen::SparseMatrixBase ?
