\title{(Virtual) Class "dMatrix" of "double" Matrices}
  The \code{dMatrix} class is a virtual class contained by all actual
  classes of numeric matrices in the \pkg{Matrix} package.  Similarly,
  all the actual classes of logical matrices inherit from the
  \code{lMatrix} class.
%\section{Objects from the Class}{A virtual Class: No objects may be
%  created from it.
  Common to \emph{all} matrix object in the package:
    \item{\code{Dim}:}{Object of class \code{"integer"} - the dimensions
     of the matrix - must be an integer vector with exactly two
     non-negative values.}
    \item{\code{Dimnames}:}{list of length two; each component
      containing NULL or a \code{\link{character}} vector length
      equal the corresponding \code{Dim} element.}
  There are (relatively simple) group methods (see, e.g., \code{\link{Arith}})
    \item{Arith}{\code{signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "dMatrix")}: ... }
    \item{Arith}{\code{signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "numeric")}: ... }
    \item{Arith}{\code{signature(e1 = "numeric", e2 = "dMatrix")}: ... }
    \item{Math}{\code{signature(x = "dMatrix")}: ... }
    \item{Math2}{\code{signature(x = "dMatrix", digits = "numeric")}:
      this group contains \code{\link{round}()} and \code{\link{signif}()}.}
    \item{Compare}{\code{signature(e1 = "numeric", e2 = "dMatrix")}: ... }
    \item{Compare}{\code{signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "numeric")}: ... }
    \item{Compare}{\code{signature(e1 = "dMatrix", e2 = "dMatrix")}: ... }
    \item{Summary}{\code{signature(x = "dMatrix")}: The \code{"Summary"}
      group contains the seven functions
      \code{\link{max}()}, \code{\link{min}()}, \code{\link{range}()},
      \code{\link{prod}()}, \code{\link{sum}()},
      \code{\link{any}()}, and \code{\link{all}()}.}
  The following methods are also defined for all double matrices:
    \item{coerce}{\code{signature(from = "dMatrix", to = "matrix")}: ... }
    \item{expm}{\code{signature(x = "dMatrix")}: computes the
      \emph{\dQuote{Matrix Exponential}}, see \code{\link{expm}}.}
    \item{zapsmall}{\code{signature(x = "dMatrix")}: ... }
% Martin + Doug\author{Douglas Bates \email{}}
  The nonzero-pattern matrix class \code{\linkS4class{nMatrix}},
  and the numeric matrix classes \code{\linkS4class{dgeMatrix}},
  \code{\linkS4class{dgCMatrix}}, and \code{\linkS4class{Matrix}}.

 round(Matrix(rnorm(28), 4,7), 2)
 (M <- zapsmall(Matrix(rlnorm(56, sd=10), 4,14)))
 table(as.logical(M == 0))
