Dear all,
I have to take the upper triangular part of a matrix in a oct-file. Later, I
have to perform RowVector-Matrix products with it. This is my code
// given Matrix F(m,m)
// take the upper triangular part
for (octave_idx_type j = 0; j < m; j++)
{
for (octave_idx_type i = j+1; i < m; i++)
F(i,j) = 0.0;
}
RowVector d = F.row(0);
// make RowVector-matrix products
for (octave_idx_type i = 0; i < s-1; i++)
d = d * F;
My question is: if I mark the matrix "upper" (but do not know how to do it), is
the RowVector-Matrix product faster (for instance BLAS dtrmv is used instead of general
dgemv)?

Look at the matrix_type function for how to mark the matrix as upper. However,
marking it as such is only useful at this point for the solve function or slash
operators.

Dear all, copying from dMatrix.cc, I replaced
for (octave_idx_type i = 0; i < s-1; i++)
d = d*F
with the triangular matrix vector product
double *Fd = d.fortran_vec();
for (octave_idx_type i = 0; i < s-1; i++)
{
F77_XFCN(dtrmv, DTRMV, (F77_CONST_CHAR_ARG2 ("U",1),
F77_CONST_CHAR_ARG2 ("T",1),
F77_CONST_CHAR_ARG2 ("N",1),
m, F.data(),
m, Fd, 1
F77_CHAR_ARG_LEN (1)
F77_CHAR_ARG_LEN (1)
F77_CHAR_ARG_LEN (1)));
}

`It works, but even with large matrices (around 400x400) I do not see any
``speed-up.
`
Thanks,
