Description Christoph Hertzberg 2014-02-25 13:36:56 UTC
Currently, all decompositions can be called on integer matrices but usually generate bogus results, since they use floating point operations (division/sqrt) which are silently converted to integer results.
We should forbid such decompositions at compile-time.
Decompositions which only depend on division (LU/LDLt) should be allowed for rational-number implementations, however.
Comment 1 Gael Guennebaud 2014-10-20 13:58:40 UTC
At least, we should document the requirements on the Scalar types and explicitly list the common supported types.
