 The Matrix class 
 In Eigen, all matrices and vectors are objects of the Matrix template class. Vectors are just a special case of matrices, with either 1 row or 1 column.


 Matrix and vector arithmetic 
 This page aims to provide an overview and some details on how to perform arithmetic between matrices, vectors and scalars with Eigen.


 The Array class and coefficientwise operations 
 This page aims to provide an overview and explanations on how to use Eigen's Array class.


 Block operations 
 This page explains the essentials of block operations. A block is a rectangular part of a matrix or array. Blocks expressions can be used both as rvalues and as lvalues. As usual with Eigen expressions, this abstraction has zero runtime cost provided that you let your compiler optimize.


 Advanced initialization 
 This page discusses several advanced methods for initializing matrices. It gives more details on the commainitializer, which was introduced before. It also explains how to get special matrices such as the identity matrix and the zero matrix.


 Reductions, visitors and broadcasting 
 This page explains Eigen's reductions, visitors and broadcasting and how they are used with matrices and arrays .


 Interfacing with raw buffers: the Map class 
 This page explains how to work with "raw" C/C++ arrays. This can be useful in a variety of contexts, particularly when "importing" vectors and matrices from other libraries into Eigen.


 Reshape and Slicing 
 Eigen does not expose convenient methods to take slices or to reshape a matrix yet. Nonetheless, such features can easily be emulated using the Map class.


 Aliasing 
 In Eigen, aliasing refers to assignment statement in which the same matrix (or array or vector) appears on the left and on the right of the assignment operators. Statements like mat = 2 * mat; or mat = mat.transpose(); exhibit aliasing. The aliasing in the first example is harmless, but the aliasing in the second example leads to unexpected results. This page explains what aliasing is, when it is harmful, and what to do about it.


 Storage orders 
 There are two different storage orders for matrices and twodimensional arrays: columnmajor and rowmajor. This page explains these storage orders and how to specify which one should be used.
