# matrix.ssc-class

##### Class "matrix.ssc"

A new class for sparse matrices stored in symmetric sparse column format

- Keywords
- classes

##### Objects from the Class

Objects can be created by calls of the form `new("matrix.ssc", ...)`

.

##### Slots

`ra`

:Object of class

`numeric`

, a real array of nnz elements containing the non-zero elements of the lower triangular part of A, stored in column order. Thus, if i<j, all elements of column i precede elements from column j. The order of elements within the column is immaterial.`ja`

:Object of class

`integer`

, an integer array of nnz elements containing the row indices of the elements stored in `ra'.`ia`

:Object of class

`integer`

, an integer array of n+1 elements containing pointers to the beginning of each column in the arrays `ra' and `ja'. Thus `ia[i]' indicates the position in the arrays `ra' and `ja' where the ith column begins. The last, (n+1)st, element of `ia' indicates where the n+1 column would start, if it existed.`dimension`

:Object of class

`integer`

, dimension of the matrix
