Subject Re: ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException SparseMatrix

You are using lots of threads but the sparse matrix structure is not thread
safe.  Setting a value in the SparseMatrix causes mutation to internal data

If you can have each thread do all the updates for a single thread, that
would be much better.  Another option is to synchronize on the matrix where
you call set.  Another option is synchronize on the row somehow.
 Synchronizing on row might give you the highest performance, but would be
slightly trickier to arrange and it would still include lots of uncontended
lock overhead.

Is multi-threading really what you want?  Why?  Does each value take a long
time to compute?

Can you use a lockless container to collect all of the values to insert and
insert them using a single thread?  This last is probably the fastest of
all of the options.
