41.12 Conversion Between Sparse and Dense Matrices

The gsl_spmatrix structure can be converted into the dense gsl_matrix format and vice versa with the following routines.

Function: int gsl_spmatrix_d2sp (gsl_spmatrix * S, const gsl_matrix * A)

This function converts the dense matrix A into sparse triplet format and stores the result in S.

Function: int gsl_spmatrix_sp2d (gsl_matrix * A, const gsl_spmatrix * S)

This function converts the sparse matrix S into a dense matrix and stores the result in A. S must be in triplet format.
