Compressed sparse row matrix class


A very minimal incremental compressed sparse row matrix library for JavaScript.


npm i csr-matrix


var dict = {}
dict[[1,2]] = 1
dict[[0,0]] = 2.5
dict[[3,4]] = 5
var CSRMatrix = require("csr-matrix")
var M = CSRMatrix.fromDictionary(dict, 4, 5)
console.log(M.apply([1,2,3,4,5], []))


CSRMatrices are optimized for exactly one thing: fast matrix-vector multiplies. The way you do this is by calling the following method:

There are several ways to create csr-matrices. The most direct way to do this is to just call the constructor yourself:

Turns an array of entries of the form [row, column, value] into a sparse matrix. Note that if there are some zero rows or columns at the end of the matrix, you need to specify the number of rows/columns in the optional nrows/ncols arguments.

Converts a JavaScript object with entries for the form "row,column" into a sparse matrix.

Turns an array-of-arrays into a csr matrix

Turns a 2D dimensional ndarray into a csr matrix

This computes the normal matrix-vector product, but is often much faster than a dense multiply since the matrix is stored in a compressed sparse format.

  • vector is the vector to be multiplied
  • result is an optional array which gets the result. If not specified, a new vector gets allocated

Returns the resulting product

Returns the transpose of the matrix

Returns the number of rows

Returns the number of columns

Converts matrix into a list format

Converts matrix into hash table

Converts matrix into array of arrays

Converts matrix into ndarray

  • out is the output ndarray
