Description citibeth 2017-03-17 02:23:44 UTC
If A, B, C and D are SparseMatrix instances, I can do:
   Eigen::SparseMatrix X(A*B*C)

But the following doesn't work, it yields a matrix that just zeros everything out:
   Eigen::SparseMatrix X(A*B*C*D)

So it seems that Eigen can handle multiplying three matrices in one expression, but not four.  For the latter case, splitting it up into two multiply steps works.
