The project-function?
Could you explain what should be going on here?

I don't think I have the competence in C++ to do that.. But yes - quite

I'll look more into the sparse matrix. Sometimes there are only 3 or 6
elements in the matrix of size 72x72 (that's below 25% "I think").

Thanks for helping
