Special matricesΒΆ

It is frequently useful to test algorithms on well-known, trivial, and random matrices, such as

  1. matrices with entries sampled from a uniform distribution,
  2. matrices with spectrum sampled from a uniform distribution,
  3. Wilkinson matrices,
  4. identity matrices,
  5. matrices of all ones, and
  6. matrices of all zeros.

Elemental therefore provides utilities for generating many such matrices.
