Working with sparse matrices in C++

January 15, 2018 | 0 Comments

Working with sparse matrices is a big part of my day. Social networks are inherently sparse, so sparse matrices are the best buds you can get when representing large networks as adjacency matrices.1 As so, I usually find myself trying to take advantage of their structure as, contrasting dense matrices, ...

December 7, 2017 | 0 Comments

During the last year I’ve been working on a daily basis with phylogenetic trees, objects that in graph jargon are called Directed Acyclic Graphs.

So one of the new features that I’ve working on is processing viz attributes. In the CRAN version of rgexf, the function read.gexf only reads in non-visual attributes and the graph structure itself, which is no longer true as of today (at least for the static viz attributes, ...

Last week I found myself working on netdiffuseR trying to establish nice defaults for some plotting functions with the following goals: Make the code easy to maintain: So if I need to change defaults I just change a few lines and that works for all plot functions, Make the code ... [Read more...]

Setting up optional OpenMP support with RcppArmadillo

August 28, 2017 | 0 Comments
