torch_qr(self, some = TRUE)



(Tensor) the input tensor of size \((*, m, n)\) where * is zero or more batch dimensions consisting of matrices of dimension \(m \times n\).


(bool, optional) Set to TRUE for reduced QR decomposition and FALSE for complete QR decomposition.


precision may be lost if the magnitudes of the elements of input are large

While it should always give you a valid decomposition, it may not give you the same one across platforms - it will depend on your LAPACK implementation.

qr(input, some=TRUE, out=NULL) -> (Tensor, Tensor)

Computes the QR decomposition of a matrix or a batch of matrices input, and returns a namedtuple (Q, R) of tensors such that \(\mbox{input} = Q R\) with \(Q\) being an orthogonal matrix or batch of orthogonal matrices and \(R\) being an upper triangular matrix or batch of upper triangular matrices.

If some is TRUE, then this function returns the thin (reduced) QR factorization. Otherwise, if some is FALSE, this function returns the complete QR factorization.
