Hi Ted,
If I understand your question correctly you are confusing the "n"
in Compile[{{m,_Real,n}}, expr] with the size of (number of elements in)
the object in question. I had this confusion when I first encountered
this new feature in Version 3. Actually n=1 corresponds to a vector
of arbitrary length, n=2 corresponds to a 2-dimensional
rectangular matrix, etc...
For example, this computes the dot product of a (Real)
vector with itself:
In[1]:=
testCompile1=Compile[{{x, _Real,1 }}, x.x]
Out[1]=
CompiledFunction[{x},x.x,"-CompiledCode-"]
Here is a length 1000 vector:
In[2]:=
testVector=Table[Random[],{j,1000}];
In[3]:=
testCompile1[testVector]
Out[3]=
332.942
Check the result:
In[4]:=
testVector.testVector
Out[4]=
332.942
This computes the product of an p x q matrix with its transpose:
In[5]:=
testCompile2=Compile[{{x, _Real,2 }}, x.Transpose[x]]
Out[5]=
CompiledFunction[{x},x.Transpose[x],"-CompiledCode-"]
Here is a 2 x 1000 matrix:
In[6]:=
testMatrix=Table[Random[],{i,2},{j,1000}];
In[7]:=
testCompile2[testMatrix]
Out[7]=
{{326.89,246.928},{246.928,334.346}}
Check the result:
In[8]:=
testMatrix.Transpose[testMatrix]
Out[8]=
{{326.89,246.928},{246.928,334.346}}
Does this answer the question?
Regards,
David
