# NAME

PDL::LinearAlgebra - Linear Algebra utils for PDL

# SYNOPSIS

```
use PDL::LinearAlgebra;
$a = random (100,100);
($U, $s, $V) = mdsvd($a);
```

# DESCRIPTION

This module provides a convenient interface to PDL::LinearAlgebra::Real and PDL::LinearAlgebra::Complex. Its primary purpose is educational. You have to know that routines defined here are not optimized, particularly in term of memory. Since Blas and Lapack use a column major ordering scheme some routines here need to transpose matrices before calling fortran routines and transpose back (see the documentation of each routine). If you need optimized code use directly PDL::LinearAlgebra::Real and PDL::LinearAlgebra::Complex. It's planned to "port" this module to PDL::Matrix such that transpositions will not be necessary, the major problem is that two new modules need to be created PDL::Matrix::Real and PDL::Matrix::Complex.

# FUNCTIONS

## setlaerror

Sets action type when an error is encountered, returns previous type. Available values are NO, WARN and BARF (predefined constants). If, for example, in computation of the inverse, singularity is detected, the routine can silently return values from computation (see manuals), warn about singularity or barf. BARF is the default value.

```
# h : x -> g(f(x))
$a = sequence(5,5);
$err = setlaerror(NO);
($b, $info)= f($a);
setlaerror($err);
$info ? barf "can't compute h" : return g($b);
```

## getlaerror

Gets action type when an error is encountered.

```
0 => NO,
1 => WARN,
2 => BARF
```

## t

```
PDL = t(PDL, SCALAR(conj))
conj : Conjugate Transpose = 1 | Transpose = 0, default = 1;
```

Convenient function for transposing real or complex 2D array(s). For PDL::Complex, if conj is true returns conjugate transposed array(s) and doesn't support dataflow. Supports threading.

## issym

```

```

Checks symmetricity/Hermitianicity of matrix. Supports threading.

## diag

Returns i-th diagonal if matrix in entry or matrix with i-th diagonal with entry. I-th diagonal returned flows data back&forth. Can be used as lvalue subs if your perl supports it. Supports threading.

```
PDL = diag(PDL, SCALAR(i), SCALAR(vector)))
i : i-th diagonal, default = 0

# diagonals from row vectors of $a
$a->diag(0,1)
```

## tritosym
