Class "bdsmatrix"

Description

Representation for a Block Diagonal Sparse matrix

Objects from the Class

Objects of this class are usually created using the bdsmatrix, bdsI or bdsBlock functions. The result is a symmetrix matrix whose upper left portion is block-diagonal, with an optional border on the right and bottom that is dense. The matrices were originally created to represent familial correlation structures, which have a block for each family but no connection between families.

Slots

blocksize:

An integer vector containing the sizes of the diagonal blocks

blocks:

A numeric vector containing the contents of the block portion. Only the lower triangle of each block is stored.

rmat:

An optional numeric matrix containing the dense portion

offdiag:

A single numeric element, default zero, which is the value for elements off the block-diagonal

Dim:

The dimension of the matrix, an integer vector of length 2

Dimnames:

The dimnames of the matrix, a list with 2 elements

[

signature(x = "bdsmatrix"): if the subscripts are a set of increasing integers, and the row and column subscripts are identical, then the result is aslo a bdsmatrix. This is useful for example to create the kinship matrix for all females from an overall kinship matrix. If the subscripts do not match, then an ordinary matrix is created

Note

Many of the actions above will result in conversion to an ordinary matrix object, including print, addition to an ordinary matrix, etc. This can easily create objects that are too large for system memory. By default the value of options('bdsmatrixsize') is consulted first, and if the resulting object would be have a length greater than this option the conversion an error is generated and conversion is not attempted. The default value for the option is 1000.
