[SciPy-User] scipy sparse limits
Mon Mar 12 11:48:54 CDT 2012
Hi, I'm trying to use large 10^5x10^5 sparse
matrices but seem to
be running up against a scipy limit:
n=10**5, x=sp.rand(n,n,.001) gets
"ValueError: Trying to generate a random sparse matrix such
as the product of dimensions is greater than
2147483647 - this is not supported on this machine"
Does anyone know why limit is there and if I can avoid it?
(fyi, I'm using a macbook air with
4gb memory and the enthought distribution)
