Is it possible to provide an example where ublas offers a reasonable efficiency
at solving systems of linear equations based on sparse matrices? It would be
great if it was possible to access this sort of info as the documentation
doesn't cover this subject and is a bit lacking in these sort of details.

Thanks in advance,
