Env.checkinall
def checkinall ()

Check in all unused license features to the license token server.

Groups:
 Environment management
Env.checkinlicense
def checkinlicense (feature)

Check in a license feature to the license server. By default all licenses consumed by functions using a single environment are kept checked out for the lifetime of the MOSEK environment. This function checks in a given license feature back to the license server immediately.

If the given license feature is not checked out at all, or it is in use by a call to Task.optimize, calling this function has no effect.

Please note that returning a license to the license server incurs a small overhead, so frequent calls to this function should be avoided.

Parameters:
 feature (mosek.feature) – Feature to check in to the license system. (input)
Groups:
 Environment management
Env.checkoutlicense
def checkoutlicense (feature)

Checks out a license feature from the license server. Normally the required license features will be automatically checked out the first time they are needed by the function Task.optimize. This function can be used to check out one or more features ahead of time.

The feature will remain checked out until the environment is deleted or the function Env.checkinlicense is called.

If a given feature is already checked out when this function is called, the call has no effect.

Parameters:
 feature (mosek.feature) – Feature to check out from the license system. (input)

Env.computesparsecholesky
def computesparsecholesky (multithread, ordermethod, tolsingular, anzc, aptrc, asubc, avalc) -> perm, diag, lnzc, lptrc, lensubnval, lsubc, lvalc

The function computes a Cholesky factorization of a sparse positive semidefinite matrix. Sparsity is exploited during the computations to reduce the amount of space and work required. Both the input and output matrices are represented using the sparse format.

To be precise, given a symmetric matrix \(A \in \real^{n\times n}\) the function computes a nonsingular lower triangular matrix \(L\), a diagonal matrix \(D\) and a permutation matrix \(P\) such that

\[LL^T - D = P A P^T.\]

If ordermethod is zero then reordering heuristics are not employed and \(P\) is the identity.

If a pivot during the computation of the Cholesky factorization is less than

\[-\rho\cdot\max((PAP^T)_{jj},1.0)\]

then the matrix is declared negative semidefinite. On the hand if a pivot is smaller than

\[\rho\cdot\max((PAP^T)_{jj},1.0),\]

then \(D_{jj}\) is increased from zero to

\[\rho\cdot\max((PAP^T)_{jj},1.0).\]

Therefore, if \(A\) is sufficiently positive definite then \(D\) will be the zero matrix. Here \(\rho\) is set equal to value of tolsingular.

Parameters:
 
  • multithread (int) – If nonzero then the function may exploit multiple threads. (input)
  • ordermethod (int) – If nonzero, then a sparsity preserving ordering will be employed. (input)
  • tolsingular (float) – A positive parameter controlling when a pivot is declared zero. (input)
  • anzc (int[]) – anzc[j] is the number of nonzeros in the \(j\)-th column of \(A\). (input)
  • aptrc (int[]) – aptrc[j] is a pointer to the first element in column \(j\) of \(A\). (input)
  • asubc (int[]) – Row indexes for each column stored in increasing order. (input)
  • avalc (float[]) – The value corresponding to row indexed stored in asubc. (input)
Return:
 
  • perm (int[]) – Permutation array used to specify the permutation matrix \(P\) computed by the function.
  • diag (float[]) – The diagonal elements of matrix \(D\).
  • lnzc (int[]) – lnzc[j] is the number of non zero elements in column \(j\) of \(L\).
  • lptrc (int[]) – lptrc[j] is a pointer to the first row index and value in column \(j\) of \(L\).
  • lensubnval (int) – Number of elements in lsubc and lvalc.
  • lsubc (int[]) – Row indexes for each column stored in increasing order.
  • lvalc (float[]) – The values corresponding to row indexed stored in lsubc.

  • x (float[]) – The \(x\) vector. (input)

Env.gemm
def gemm (transa, transb, m, n, k, alpha, a, b, beta, c)

Performs a matrix multiplication plus addition of dense matrices. Given \(A\), \(B\) and \(C\) of compatible dimensions, this function computes

\[C:= \alpha op(A)op(B) + \beta C\]

where \(\alpha,\beta\) are two scalar values. The function \(op(X)\) denotes \(X\) if transX is transpose.no, or \(X^T\) if set to transpose.yes. The matrix \(C\) has \(m\) rows and \(n\) columns, and the other matrices must have compatible dimensions.

The result of this operation is stored in \(C\).
