Hi
I am struggling with using cwise operations. I want to create a matrix from another one by applying an elementwise matrixA = matrixB < scalarC; MatrixXd B; double c; MatrixXd A = B.cwise() < c; results in a compilation error YOU_MIXED_DIFFERENT_NUMERIC_TYPES__YOU_NEED_TO_USE_THE_CAST_METHOD_OF_MATRIXBASE_TO_CAST_NUMERIC_TYPES_EXPLICITLY I have seen in the APIdoc of cwise that the operator is defined. To my understanding it is specialized for evaluating purposes. Does anyone know the missing hint in transforming the resulting CwiseBinaryOp object to a matrix?

the result is a matrix of bools, so it complains about different scalar types. you can cast() or select().
PS. strange, this operator isn't mentioned in the online docs, only the one taking a second xpr is mentioned here. http://eigen.tuxfamily.org/dox/classEigen_1_1Cwise.html Could that be your problem?

Thanks! The cast works fine. It seems I did not understand the identity of CwiseBinaryOp
It is there: http://eigen.tuxfamily.org/dox/classEig ... b69fe2e55a

This one takes a matrix as second argument. Your notation seemed to imply you were passing a scalar (scalarC). Anyway, good if it's now working for you.

I hope you can help me once more.
I am looking for an operation that gives me a rowwise sum, eg. MatrixXd A(4,3); MatrixXd b(4,1); MatrixXd C = A+b.col(0); Then C should contain C(i,k) = A(i,k)+b(i) Is that somehow possible?

At the moment, we don't seem to have anything for that. You can always do
but this is quite inelegant. What we need is to have "stacking" expressions and I remember that this has already been asked for. I'll have a look at it, when I can.

Thanks for answering. I can help myself with dirty hacks until this feature arrives. Thanks!

it is already there ! it is called replicate. I think you can do something like:
c = a + b.replicate(1,a.cols()); or c = a + b.rowwise().replicate(a.cols()); for more details have a look at the doc.
