DenseLinearizer(const std::string &name, const std::vector<Factor<Scalar>> &factors, const std::vector<Key> &key_order = {}, bool include_jacobians = false)

Construct a Linearizer from factors and optional keys

  • name – name of linearizer used for debug information

  • factors – Only stores a pointer, MUST be in scope for the lifetime of this object!

  • key_order – If provided, acts as an ordered set of keys that form the state vector to optimize. Can equal the set of all factor keys or a subset of all factor keys. If not provided, it is computed from all keys for all factors using a default ordering.

  • include_jacobians – Relinearize only allocates and fills out the jacobian if true.

bool IsInitialized() const

Returns whether Relinearize() has already been called once.

Matters because many calculations need to be called only on the first linearization that are then cached for subsequent use. Also, if Relinearize() has already been called, then the matrices in the linearization are expected to already be allocated to the right size.

const std::vector<Key> &Keys() const

The keys to optimize, in the order they appear in the state vector (i.e., in rhs).

const std::unordered_map<key_t, index_entry_t> &StateIndex() const

A map from all optimized keys in the problem to an index entry for the corresponding optimized values (where the offset is into the problem state vector, i.e., the rhs of a linearization).

Only read if IsInitialized() returns true (i.e., after the first call to Relinearize).

void Relinearize(const Values<Scalar> &values, DenseLinearization<Scalar> &linearization)

Update linearization at a new evaluation point. This is more efficient than reconstructing this object repeatedly. On the first call, it will allocate memory and perform analysis needed for efficient repeated relinearization.

On the first call to Relinearize, the matrices in linearization will be allocated and sized correctly. On subsequent calls, the matrices of linearization are expected to already be allocated and sized correctly.

TODO(aaron): This should be const except that it can initialize the object

Private Functions

void InitialLinearization(const Values<Scalar> &values, DenseLinearization<Scalar> &linearization)#

Evaluates the linearizations of the factors at values into linearization, caching all values needed for relinearization along the way.


  • Calculates state_index_

  • Allocates all factor linearizations in linearized_dense_factors_

  • Calculates factor_indices_

  • Calculates factor_keyoffsets_

Sets is_initialized_ to true.

NOTE(brad): Things might break if you call it twice.
