# Data-Sparse LinearOperators

## BlockDiagLinearOperator

class linear_operator.operators.BlockDiagLinearOperator(base_linear_op: LinearOperator, block_dim=-3)[source]

Represents a lazy tensor that is the block diagonal of square matrices. The block_dim attribute specifies which dimension of the base LinearOperator specifies the blocks. For example, (with block_dim=-3 a k x n x n tensor represents k n x n blocks (a kn x kn matrix). A b x k x n x n tensor represents k b x n x n blocks (a b x kn x kn batch matrix).

Args:
base_linear_op (LinearOperator or Tensor):

Must be at least 3 dimensional.

block_dim (int):

The dimension that specifies the blocks.

## CholLinearOperator

class linear_operator.operators.CholLinearOperator(chol, upper=False)[source]

A LinearOperator that represents a positive definite matrix given a lower trinagular Cholesky factor $$\mathbf L$$ (or upper triangular Cholesky factor $$\mathbf R$$).

Parameters
• chol (TriangularLinearOperator) – The Cholesky factor $$\mathbf L$$ (or $$\mathbf R$$).

• upper (bool) – If the orientation of the cholesky factor is an upper triangular matrix (i.e. $$\mathbf R^\top \mathbf R$$). If false, then the orientation is assumed to be a lower triangular matrix (i.e. $$\mathbf L \mathbf L^\top$$).

inverse()[source]

Returns the inverse of the CholLinearOperator.

Return type

CholLinearOperator
