## mcordingley/linearalgebra

Matrix math for PHP.

Requires

- php: >=5.4.0

Requires (Dev)

- phpunit/phpunit: ~4.0

# README

Stand-alone Linear Algebra Library for PHP

## Installation

Include this in your composer.json and then run `composer install`

:

```
"mcordingley/linearalgebra": "~0.9.1"
```

## Usage

Start with a `use`

statement for the class:

```
use \mcordingley\LinearAlgebra\Matrix;
```

Then, instantiate a new instance of the matrix class like so:

```
$matrix = new Matrix([
[0, 1, 2],
[3, 4, 5],
[6, 7, 8]
]);
```

You can also generate an identity matrix with the `identity`

factory function:

```
$threeByThreeIdentityMatrix = Matrix::identity(3);
```

With the matrix instance, you can retrieve individual elements with `get`

using
the zero-based indices of the row and column that you want:

```
$element = $matrix->get($row, $column);
```

It's also possible to find out how large the matrix is with the `rows`

and
`columns`

properties:

```
$rows = $matrix->rows;
$columns = $matrix->columns;
```

You can also add, subtract, and multiply the matrix with scalar values and other matrices. All operations return a new Matrix and do not modify the underlying matrix:

```
$addedScalar = $matrix->add(3);
$addedMatrix = $matrix->add($anotherMatrix);
$subtractedScalar = $matrix->subtract(2);
$subtractedMatrix = $matrix->subtract($anotherMatrix);
$multipliedByScalar = $matrix->multiply(4);
$multipliedByMatrix = $matrix->multiply($anotherMatrix);
```

Matrices can be compared with `equals`

to see if they're equal:

```
if ($matrix1->equals($matrix2)) {
// Equality for all!
}
```

In addition to these basic operations, the Matrix class offers other common matrix operations:

```
$matrix->inverse()
$matrix->adjoint()
$matrix->determinant()
$matrix->trace()
$matrix->transpose()
$matrix->submatrix()
```

It's also possible to run a map over the matrix:

```
$squaredElements = $matrix->map(function($element, $row, $column, $matrix) {
return $element * $element
});
```

## Change-log

Next

- Switch to PSR-4 from PSR-0.
- Take
`isSymmetric()`

public. - Rearrange source in
`Matrix.php`

to be more readable and PSR-compliant.

0.9.1

- Fix several bugs with the Cholesky decomposition and inverse.

0.9.0

- Bump version up to represent that this is close to it's final form.
- Merged PR for faster
`inverse`

calculations - KISS
`Vector`

class good-bye. - Renamed
`eq`

to`equals`

. - Removed
`set`

function, so instantiated objects are immutable.

0.3.0

- Added the
`identity`

factory function - Using Cholesky decomposition for faster matrix inversions for applicable matrices
- Added
`eq`

function to test equality of matrices - Implemented the ArrayAccess interface

- Added the
0.2.0

- Created the Vector type
`\MCordingley`

namespace is now`\mcordingley`

- Matrix functions that return a new Matrix now return a new instance of the called class

0.1.0

- Created the Matrix type
- Scalar Addition
- Scalar Subtraction
- Scalar Multiplication
- Matrix Addition
- Matrix Subtraction
- Matrix Multiplication
- Inverse
- Adjoint
- Determinant
- Trace
- Transpose
- Submatrix
- Map
