Sorry, I forgot to fix some stuff that depends on my libraries. This version looks better. I should also point out that there are probably more efficient implementations. Where I have used this code, the runtime cost of f() dominates the problem. Ian. vnl_matrix<double> forward_differences( my_functor_t& f, // the function vnl_vector<double> x_0, // the central point const vnl_vector<double> &scale) // the measurement scale. { vnl_vector<double> r_0 = f(x_0); unsigned nr = r_0.size(); unsigned nx = x_0.size(); vnl_matrix<double> jacobian(nr, nx); for (unsigned i=0; i<nx; ++i) { vnl_vector<double> x=x_0; x(i) += scale(i); vnl_vector<double> r=f(x); vnl_vector<double> dr = r  r_0; dr /= scale(i); jacobian.set_column(i, dr); } return jacobian; } XIN LI wrote: > Hello, > > Sorry.

This is a simple forwarddifferences Jacobian estimator. I've modified it a little to reduce the required context, so it hasn't been directly tested. You can get better estimates using central or higherorder differences. vnl_matrix<double> forward_differences( my_functor_t& f, // the function vnl_vector<double> x_0, // the central point const vnl_vector<double> &scale) // the measurement scale. { vnl_vector<double> r_0 = f(x_0); unsigned nr = r_0.size(); unsigned nx = x_0.size(); vnl_matrix<double> jacobian(nr, nx); for (unsigned i=0; i<nx; ++i) { vnl_vector<double> x=x_0; x(i) += scale(i); rf_inst.set_x(x); vnl_vector<double> r=rf_inst.calc_residual(); vnl_vector<double> dr = r  r_0; dr /= scale(i); jacobian.set_column(i, dr); } return jacobian; } XIN LI wrote: > Hello, > > Sorry.

A logical place to implement the Jacobian of a transformation matrix would be in the class vcsl_matrix. I personally don't think core/vnl would be a good place for this since "vnl_matrix" is not necessarily a transformation matrix, and Jacobians clearly have transformation semantics. Implementations for the Jacobian of several transformations are already in contrib/rpl/rgrl/; see especially the functions proj_jac_wrt_loc() and jacobian_wrt_loc(). Comments? Suggestions? Alternatives?  Peter. __________________________________________________________ Hitta din nästa resa på Yahoo! Shopping.

Ian Scott wrote: > There are plenty of meanings of "the Jacobian of a matrix" The Jacobian of a (coordinate) transformation is welldefined. And a linear transformation can be represented by a transformation matrix. So most probably that's what is meant by "the Jacobian of a matrix"? (See, e.g., http://math.etsu.edu/MultiCalc/Chap3/Chap35/index.htm) The Jacobian is then itself a transformation matrix representing the (linear) transformation between derivatives (or tangent vectors) in the two coordinate frames.

Li, This probably isn't what you want to hear but  are you sure you understand what you are asking for? The Jacobian is traditionally defined on a vector function Y=F(X), where Y in a m element vector and X is an n element vector. The Jacobian is the matrix of first derivatives of Y, w.r.t. to each element in X, dY_i J_ij = ____ dX_J (or possibly the transpose  I can't remember) You can talk about an analogous Jacobian of a matrix, but usually after defining a flattening of the matrix into a vector, and then defining the variables against which you want to calculate the derivative. The are plenty of other meanings of "the Jacobian of a matrix", e.g. assuming the matrix is a Hessian of F, its square is a rough approximation to the Jacobian. The code to perform these calculations is available in VXL, but not as a simple class, since the implementation depends on what exactly you mean by "Jacobian of a matrix" Ian.
