In this assignment you will create a calculator for performing matrix operations that exploits the
(expected) sparseness of it’s matrix operands. An
square matrix is said to be sparse if the number
of non-zero entries (abbreviated NNZ) is small compared to the total number
of entries. The result
will be a Java program capable of performing fast matrix operations, even on very large matrices,
provided they are sparse.
matrices A and B, their product
C  AB
is the
matrix whose
entry is given by
Cij Aik B

Thus the element in the i
th row and j
th column of C is the vector dot product of the i
th row of A with the j
column of B. If we consider addition and multiplication of real numbers to be our basic operations, then
the above formula can be computed in time
( )
3  n
, which is impractical for matrix sizes n of more than a
few thousand. If it so happens that A and B are sparse, then a great many of these arithmetic operations
involve adding or multiplying by zero, hence are unnecessary.
The sum S, and difference D, of A and B are the
matrices having
 Aij  Bij
and Dij
 Aij  Bij
The scalar product of a real number x with A is denoted
xA , and has
ij Aij (xA)  x 
. The
transpose of A, denoted
T A , is the matrix whose
th ij
entry is the
th ji
entry of A:
ij ji
(A )  A
. In other
words, the rows of A are the columns of
, and the columns of A are the rows of
T A . Each of these
operations can be computed in time
( )
2  n
, and just as for multiplication, their cost can be improved
upon significantly when A and B are sparse.
As one would expect, the cost of a matrix operation depends heavily on the choice of data structure used
to represent the matrix operands. There are several ways to represent a matrix with real entries. The
standard approach is to use a 2-dimensional
array of doubles. The advantage of this representation
is that all of the above matrix operations have a straight-forward implementation using nested loops. This
project will use a very different representation however. Here you will represent a matrix as a 1-
dimensional array of Lists. Each List will represent one row of the Matrix, but only the non-zero entries
will be stored. Therefore List elements must store not just the matrix entries, but the columns in which
those entries reside. For example, the matrix below would have the following representation as an array
of Lists.

0.0 4.0 5.0
3.0 0.0 0.0
1.0 0.0 2.0
M Array of Lists:

3: (2, 4.0) (3, 5.0)
2 : (1, 3.0)
1: (1, 1.0) (3, 2.0)
This method obviously results in a substantial space savings when the Matrix is sparse. In addition, the
standard matrix operations defined above can be performed more efficiently on sparse matrices. As you
will see though, the matrix operations are much more difficult to implement using this representation.
The trade-off then is a gain in space and time efficiency for sparse matrices, at the expense of more
complicated algorithms for performing standard matrix operations. Designing these algorithms in terms
of List operations will constitute the majority of the work you do on this assignment.
It will be necessary to make some minor changes to your List ADT from pa1. First you must convert
your List ADT from a List of ints to a List of Objects. This entails changing certain field types,
declaration statements, method parameters, and return types from int to Object. The Objects referred to
by these List elements will be defined in the Matrix ADT specified below. Second, it will be necessary to
eliminate the List operations copy() and cat() (which was optional anyway.) All other List operations
from pa1 will be retained. The equals() operation however will be altered slightly so as to override, rather
than overload Object’s built in equals() method. This is done by changing it’s signature from boolean
equals(List L), as in pa1 to public boolean equals(Object x), which is it’s signature in the
superclass Object. Indeed, all equals() methods in this project should carry this same signature.
File Formats
The top level client module for this project will be called It will take two command line
arguments giving the names of the input and output files, respectively. The input file will begin with a
single line containing three integers n, a, and b, separated by spaces. The second line will be blank, and
the following a lines will specify the non-zero entries of an
matrix A. Each of these lines will
contain a space separated list of three numbers: two integers and a double, giving the row, column, and
value of the corresponding matrix entry. After another blank line, will follow b lines specifying the nonzero entries of an
matrix B. For example, the two matrices

7.0 8.0 9.0
4.0 5.0 6.0
1.0 2.0 3.0
A and

1.0 1.0 1.0
0.0 0.0 0.0
1.0 0.0 1.0
are encoded by the following input file:
3 9 5
1 1 1.0
1 2 2.0
1 3 3.0
2 1 4.0
2 2 5.0
2 3 6.0
3 1 7.0
3 2 8.0
3 3 9.0
1 1 1.0
1 3 1.0
3 1 1.0
3 2 1.0
3 3 1.0
Your program will read an input file such as above, initialize and build the Array of Lists representation
of the matrices A and B, then calculate and print the following matrices to the output file: A, B, (1.5)A,
A B , A A, B  A, A A,
T A , AB
, and
2 B
. The output file format is illustrated by the following
example, which corresponds to the above input file.
A has 9 non-zero entries:
1: (1, 1.0) (2, 2.0) (3, 3.0)
2: (1, 4.0) (2, 5.0) (3, 6.0)
3: (1, 7.0) (2, 8.0) (3, 9.0)
B has 5 non-zero entries:
1: (1, 1.0) (3, 1.0)
3: (1, 1.0) (2, 1.0) (3, 1.0)
(1.5)*A =
1: (1, 1.5) (2, 3.0) (3, 4.5)
2: (1, 6.0) (2, 7.5) (3, 9.0)
3: (1, 10.5) (2, 12.0) (3, 13.5)
A+B =
1: (1, 2.0) (2, 2.0) (3, 4.0)
2: (1, 4.0) (2, 5.0) (3, 6.0)
3: (1, 8.0) (2, 9.0) (3, 10.0)
A+A =
1: (1, 2.0) (2, 4.0) (3, 6.0)
2: (1, 8.0) (2, 10.0) (3, 12.0)
3: (1, 14.0) (2, 16.0) (3, 18.0)
B-A =
1: (2, -2.0) (3, -2.0)
2: (1, -4.0) (2, -5.0) (3, -6.0)
3: (1, -6.0) (2, -7.0) (3, -8.0)
A-A =
Transpose(A) =
1: (1, 1.0) (2, 4.0) (3, 7.0)
2: (1, 2.0) (2, 5.0) (3, 8.0)
3: (1, 3.0) (2, 6.0) (3, 9.0)
A*B =
1: (1, 4.0) (2, 3.0) (3, 4.0)
2: (1, 10.0) (2, 6.0) (3, 10.0)
3: (1, 16.0) (2, 9.0) (3, 16.0)
B*B =
1: (1, 2.0) (2, 1.0) (3, 2.0)
3: (1, 2.0) (2, 1.0) (3, 2.0)
Notice that the rows are to be printed in column sorted order, and zero rows are skipped altogether. On
the other hand, the input file may give the matrix entries in any order.
Matrix ADT Specifications
In addition to the main program and the altered from pa1, you will implement a
Matrix ADT in a file called, which defines the Matrix class. This class will contain a private
inner class (similar to Node in your List ADT) that encapsulates the column and value information
corresponding to a matrix entry. You may give this inner class any name you wish, but I will refer to it
here as Entry. Thus Entry will have two fields that store types int and double respectively. Entry must
also contain its own equals() and toString() methods which override the corresponding methods in the
Object superclass. Your Matrix class will represent a matrix as an array of Lists of Entry Objects. It is
highly recommended that these Lists be maintained in column sorted order. Your Matrix ADT will
export the following operations.
// Constructor
Matrix(int n) // Makes a new n x n zero Matrix. pre: n>=1
// Access functions
int getSize() // Returns n, the number of rows and columns of this Matrix
int getNNZ() // Returns the number of non-zero entries in this Matrix
public boolean equals(Object x) // overrides Object’s equals() method
// Manipulation procedures
void makeZero() // sets this Matrix to the zero state
Matrix copy()// returns a new Matrix having the same entries as this Matrix
void changeEntry(int i, int j, double x)
// changes ith row, jth column of this Matrix to x
// pre: 1<=i<=getSize(), 1<=j<=getSize()
Matrix scalarMult(double x)
// returns a new Matrix that is the scalar product of this Matrix with x
Matrix add(Matrix M)
// returns a new Matrix that is the sum of this Matrix with M
// pre: getSize()==M.getSize()
Matrix sub(Matrix M)
// returns a new Matrix that is the difference of this Matrix with M
// pre: getSize()==M.getSize()
Matrix transpose()
// returns a new Matrix that is the transpose of this Matrix
Matrix mult(Matrix M)
// returns a new Matrix that is the product of this Matrix with M
// pre: getSize()==M.getSize()

// Other functions
public String toString() // overrides Object’s toString() method

It is required that your program perform these operations efficiently. Let n be the number of rows in A,
and let a and b denote the number of non-zero entries in A and B respectively. Then functions copy(),
changeEntry(), scalarMult(), and transpose() should have cost
(n  a)
when applied to A, in worst case.
Functions add() and sub() can be implemented to run in time
(n  a b)
, and mult() should run in time
( )
2  n  a b . It will be helpful to include a private function with signature
private static double dot(List P, List Q)
that computes the vector dot product of two matrix rows represented by Lists P and Q. Use this function
together with function transpose() to help implement mult(). Similar helper functions for the
operations add() and sub() will also be useful.
What to Turn In
Your project will be structured in three files:,, and The main
program, Sparse, will handle the input and output files and is the client of Matrix, which is itself the client
of List. Note that Sparse is not itself a direct client of List, since it need not call any List operations. You
will also write separate client modules and to test the List and
Matrix ADTs in isolation. Students often ask what should be the contents of these test files. In each case
include enough calls to ADT operations to convince the grader that you did in fact test your List and
Matrix ADT modules. The best way to do this is to actually use them for this purpose. At minimum they
should call every public function in their respective ADT modules at least once.
Also submit a README file and a Makefile that creates an executable jar file called Sparse. Thus seven
files in all will be turned in:
Submit these to the assignment name pa3 by the due date. As always, start early and ask questions.
