A nice linear algebra library

Project description

pylinlin PyPI version codecov

Nice linear algebra library in python


from pylinlin.matrix import Matrix
from pylinlin.lu_factorization import compute_lu_factorization
from pylinlin.qr_factorization import compute_qr_factorization

# Create matrix
matrix = Matrix.from_cols([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 10]])  # preferred way to initialize a matrix
matrix2 = Matrix.from_rows([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6], [7, 8, 9]])

column_as_list = [1, 2, 3, 4, 5]
column_vector = Matrix.from_cols([column_as_list])  # column vectors can be represented as matrices
magnitude_sq = column_vector.transpose().multiply(column_vector).get(0, 0)  # 55

print(matrix.size())      # Get dimensions of matrix (rows, columns)
print(matrix.get_col(0))  # Get first column from matrix
print(matrix.get_row(1))  # Get second row from matrix

print(matrix.all_cols())  # List of matrix columns

matL, matU = compute_lu_factorization(matrix)
matQ, matR = compute_qr_factorization(matrix)
print(matQ.transpose().multiply(matQ).all_cols())  # approximately an identity matrix

product = matrix.multiply(matrix)  # matrix multiplication
