This perfectly fits for compressed_matrix.

currently there is no specialization of matrix-axpy for the different sparse
types, except the general iterator based axpy (see operation.hpp). If you
often have to compute J * M' you can easily take the compressed_matrix*vector
axpy_prod from operation.hpp and modify it to compute
AFAIK the compressed_matrix (CSR, CSC) has always the fastest multiplication
