Description Martin Rueckl 2014-06-26 16:16:41 UTC
Created attachment 471 [details]
test code reproducing the bug

Running the attached code leads to following output, which is wrong (if i'm not completely mistaken)

vector v:2x1:
matrix m:2x1:
Using ^T as "transposed"
out1 = (v^T*m)^T : shape: 1x1
out2 = m^T*v     : shape: 1x1
out1(0,0) = 0                       << should also be 4?!?!
out2(0,0) = 4 
out1 == out2: true                  << NO!
Comment 1 Christoph Hertzberg 2014-06-26 16:23:24 UTC
(v.transpose()*m) is evaluated into a temporary, which gets out of scope when the surrounding ().transpose() is later accessed.

Avoid using auto with Eigen-expressions!
