Subject [jira] [Commented] (MATH-821) SparseRealVectorTest.testMap and testMapToSelf fail because zero entries lose their sign
Date Fri, 13 Jul 2012 11:24:34 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MATH-821?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13413659#comment-13413659
] 

Gilles commented on MATH-821:
-----------------------------

In revision 1361164, I disabled the two unit tests that demonstrate this bug.
When the bug is fixed, the tests should be made active again.

> Mapping {{Inverse}} to an {{OpenMapRealVector}} can lead to wrong answers, because {{1.0
/ 0.0}} should return {{+/-Infinity}} depending on the sign of the zero entry. Since the sign
is lost in {{OpenMapRealVector}}, the answer must be wrong if the entry is truly {{-0.0}}.
> This is a difficult bug, because it potentially affects any function passed to {{OpenMapRealVector.map()}}
or {{mapToSelf()}}. I would recommend we relax the requirements in the unit tests of this
class, and make people aware of the issue in the class documentation.
