Subject [jira] Updated: (MATH-391) Inconsistent behaviour of constructors in ArrayRealVector class
Date Wed, 21 Jul 2010 09:28:50 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-391?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Roman Werpachowski updated MATH-391:
------------------------------------

    Description: 
ArrayRealVector(double[] d) allows to construct a zero-length vector, but ArrayRealVector(double[]
d, boolean copyArray) doesn't. Both should allow this as zero-length vectors are mathematically
well-defined objects and they are useful boundary cases in many algorithms.

This breaks some arithmetic operators (addition) on zero-length real vectors which worked
in 2.0 but don't work in 2.1

Zero-length vectors worked in version 2.0, they should be working in 2.1 as well.
