Subject [jira] [Created] (MATH-803) Bugs in OpenMapRealVector.ebeMultiply(RealVector) and ebeDivide(RealVector)

Sébastien Brisard created MATH-803:

             Summary: Bugs in OpenMapRealVector.ebeMultiply(RealVector) and ebeDivide(RealVector)
                 Key: MATH-803
             Project: Commons Math
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 3.0
            Reporter: Sébastien Brisard
            Assignee: Sébastien Brisard

{{OpenMapRealVector.ebeMultiply(RealVector)}} and {{OpenMapRealVector.ebeDivide(RealVector)}}
return wrong values when one entry of the specified {{RealVector}} is nan or infinity. The
bug is easy to understand. Here is the current implementation of {{ebeMultiply}}

    public OpenMapRealVector ebeMultiply(RealVector v) {
        OpenMapRealVector res = new OpenMapRealVector(this);
        Iterator iter = entries.iterator();
        while (iter.hasNext()) {
            res.setEntry(iter.key(), iter.value() * v.getEntry(iter.key()));
        return res;

The assumption is that for any double {{x}}, {{x * 0d == 0d}} holds, which is not true. The
bug is easy enough to identify, but more complex to solve. The only solution I can come up
with is to loop through *all* entries of v (instead of those entries which correspond to non-zero
entries of this). I'm afraid about performance losses.
