This is usually faster, and is never slower. The default method is 'linear'. If @var{extrap} is the string 'extrap', then extrapolate values beyond the endpoints. If @var{extrap} is a number, replace values beyond the endpoints with that number. If @var{extrap} is missing, assume NaN.

The input arguments are @itemize @item @var{a} can be either a square (preferably sparse) matrix or a function handle, inline function or string containing the name of a function which computes @code{@var{a} * @var{x}}. In principle @var{a} should be symmetric and nonsingular; if @code{pcr} finds @var{a} to be numerically singular, you will get a warning message and the @var{flag} output parameter will be set. @item @var{b} is the right hand side vector. @item @var{tol} is the required relative tolerance for the residual error, @code{@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x}}. The iteration stops if @code{norm (@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x}) <= @var{tol} * norm (@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x0})}. If @var{tol} is empty or is omitted, the function sets @code{@var{tol} = 1e6} by default. @item @var{maxit} is the maximum allowable number of iterations; if @code{[]} is supplied for @code{maxit}, or @code{pcr} has less arguments, a default value equal to 20 is used. @item @var{m} is the (left) preconditioning matrix, so that the iteration is (theoretically) equivalent to solving by @code{pcr} @code{@var{P} * @var{x} = @var{m} \ @var{b}}, with @code{@var{P} = @var{m} \ @var{a}}. Note that a proper choice of the preconditioner may dramatically improve the overall performance of the method. Instead of matrix @var{m}, the user may pass a function which returns the results of applying the inverse of @var{m} to a vector (usually this is the preferred way of using the preconditioner). If @code{[]} is supplied for @var{m}, or @var{m} is omitted, no preconditioning is applied. @item @var{x0} is the initial guess. If @var{x0} is empty or omitted, the function sets @var{x0} to a zero vector by default. @end itemize The arguments which follow @var{x0} are treated as parameters, and passed in a proper way to any of the functions (@var{a} or @var{m}) which are passed to @code{pcr}.

If @var{n} is a scalar then both real and imaginary parts of the matrix are printed to the same precision. Otherwise @code{@var{n} (1)} defines the precision of the real part and @code{@var{n} (2)} defines the precision of the imaginary part. The default for @var{n} is 17. If the argument 'class' is given, then the class of @var{x} is included in the string in such a way that the eval will result in the construction of a matrix of the same class. @example @group mat2str( [ 1/3 + i/7; 1/3  i/7 ], [4 2] ) @result{} '[0.3333+0.14i;0.33330.14i]' mat2str( [ 1/3 +i/7; 1/3 i/7 ], [4 2] ) @result{} '[0.3333+0i,0+0.14i;0.3333+0i,00.14i]' mat2str( int16([1 1]), 'class') @result{} 'int16([1,1])' @end group @end example @seealso{sprintf, int2str} @end deftypefn  NEW FILE: interpft  * texinfo * @deftypefn {Function File} {} interpft (@var{x}, @var{n}) @deftypefnx {Function File} {} interpft (@var{x}, @var{n}, @var{dim}) Fourier interpolation.

The variable @var{x} must be a strictly monotonic vector (either increasing or decreasing). While @var{y} can be either a vector or array. In the case where @var{y} is a vector, it must have a length of @var{n}.

The input arguments are @itemize @item @var{a} can be either a square (preferably sparse) matrix or a function handle, inline function or string containing the name of a function which computes @code{@var{a} * @var{x}}. In principle @var{a} should be symmetric and positive definite; if @code{pcg} finds @var{a} to not be positive definite, you will get a warning message and the @var{flag} output parameter will be set. @item @var{b} is the right hand side vector. @item @var{tol} is the required relative tolerance for the residual error, @code{@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x}}. The iteration stops if @code{norm (@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x}) <= @var{tol} * norm (@var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x0})}. If @var{tol} is empty or is omitted, the function sets @code{@var{tol} = 1e6} by default. @item @var{maxit} is the maximum allowable number of iterations; if @code{[]} is supplied for @code{maxit}, or @code{pcg} has less arguments, a default value equal to 20 is used. @item @var{m} is the (left) preconditioning matrix, so that the iteration is (theoretically) equivalent to solving by @code{pcg} @code{@var{P} * @var{x} = @var{m} \ @var{b}}, with @code{@var{P} = @var{m} \ @var{a}}. Note that a proper choice of the preconditioner may dramatically improve the overall performance of the method. Instead of matrix @var{m}, the user may pass a function which returns the results of applying the inverse of @var{m} to a vector (usually this is the preferred way of using the preconditioner). If @code{[]} is supplied for @var{m}, or @var{m} is omitted, no preconditioning is applied. @item @var{x0} is the initial guess. If @var{x0} is empty or omitted, the function sets @var{x0} to a zero vector by default. @end itemize The arguments which follow @var{x0} are treated as parameters, and passed in a proper way to any of the functions (@var{a} or @var{m}) which are passed to @code{pcg}. See the examples below for further details. The output arguments are @itemize @item @var{x} is the computed approximation to the solution of @code{@var{a} * @var{x} = @var{b}}. @item @var{flag} reports on the convergence. @code{@var{flag} = 0} means the solution converged and the tolerance criterion given by @var{tol} is satisfied. @code{@var{flag} = 1} means that the @var{maxit} limit for the iteration count was reached. @code{@var{flag} = 3} reports that the (preconditioned) matrix was found not positive definite. @item @var{relres} is the ratio of the final residual to its initial value, measured in the Euclidean norm. @item @var{iter} is the actual number of iterations performed. @item @var{resvec} describes the convergence history of the method. @code{@var{resvec} (i,1)} is the Euclidean norm of the residual, and @code{@var{resvec} (i,2)} is the preconditioned residual norm, after the (@var{i}1)th iteration, @code{@var{i} = 1,2,...@...{iter}+1}. The preconditioned residual norm is defined as @code{norm (@var{r}) ^ 2 = @var{r}' * (@var{m} \ @var{r})} where @code{@var{r} = @var{b}  @var{a} * @var{x}}, see also the description of @var{m}. If @var{eigest} is not required, only @code{@var{resvec} (:,1)} is returned. @item @var{eigest} returns the estimate for the smallest @code{@var{eigest} (1)} and largest @code{@var{eigest} (2)} eigenvalues of the preconditioned matrix @code{@var{P} = @var{m} \ @var{a}}. In particular, if no preconditioning is used, the extimates for the extreme eigenvalues of @var{a} are returned. @code{@var{eigest} (1)} is an overestimate and @code{@var{eigest} (2)} is an underestimate, so that @code{@var{eigest} (2) / @var{eigest} (1)} is a lower bound for @code{cond (@var{P}, 2)}, which nevertheless in the limit should theoretically be equal to the actual value of the condition number. The method which computes @var{eigest} works only for symmetric positive definite @var{a} and @var{m}, and the user is responsible for verifying this assumption. @end itemize Let us consider a trivial problem with a diagonal matrix (we exploit the sparsity of A) @example @group N = 10; A = diag([1:N]); A = sparse(A); b = rand(N,1); @end group @end example @sc{Example 1:} Simplest use of @code{pcg} @example x = pcg(A,b) @end example @sc{Example 2:} @code{pcg} with a function which computes @code{@var{a} * @var{x}} @example @group function y = applyA(x) y = [1:N]'.*x; endfunction x = pcg('applyA',b) @end group @end example @sc{Example 3:} Preconditioned iteration, with full diagnostics.

If @var{M} is a matrix the gradient is calculated for each row. @code{[@var{x}, @var{y}] = gradient (@var{M})} calculates the one dimensional gradient for each direction if @var{M} if @var{M} is a matrix. Additional return arguments can be use for multidimensional matrices. Spacing values between two points can be provided by the @var{dx}, @var{dy} or @var{h} parameters. If @var{h} is supplied it is assumed to be the spacing in all directions. Otherwise, seperate values of the spacing can be supplied by the @var{dx}, etc variables. A scalar value specifies an equidistant spacing, while a vector value can be used to specify a variable spacing. The length must match their respective dimension of @var{M}. At boundary points a linear extrapolation is applied. Interior points are calculated with the first approximation of the numerical gradient @example y'(i) = 1/(x(i+1)x(i1)) *(y(i1)y(i+1)). @end example @end deftypefn
