sage.matrix.change_ring.integer_to_real_double_dense(A)[source]#

Fast conversion of a matrix over the integers to a matrix with real double entries.

INPUT:

A – a dense matrix over the integers

OUTPUT:

– a dense real double matrix

EXAMPLES:

sage: a = matrix(ZZ,2,3,[-2,-5,3,4,8,1030339830489349908])
sage: a.change_ring(RDF)
[                  -2.0                   -5.0                    3.0]
[                   4.0                    8.0 1.0303398304893499e+18]
sage: import sage.matrix.change_ring
sage: sage.matrix.change_ring.integer_to_real_double_dense(a)
[                  -2.0                   -5.0                    3.0]
[                   4.0                    8.0 1.0303398304893499e+18]
