spNumNZE

Purpose

Returns the number of non-zero elements in a sparse matrix.

Format

n = spNumNZE(x)
Parameters:x (MxN sparse matrix) – data
Returns:n (scalar) – the number of non-zero elements in x.

Examples

sparse matrix y;
x = { 0 0 0 10,
      0 2 0  0,
      0 0 0  0,
      5 0 0  0,
      0 0 0  3 };

 y = denseToSp(x, 0);
 n = spNumNZE(y);
 print "The number of nonzeros is" n;
4.00
