LU decomposition

LU decomposition or LU factorization of a square matrix A is a factorization of A as the product of two matrices L and U: A equals L U, where L is a lower-triangular matrix and U is an upper-triangular matrix.

lu_decomposition(Matrix)

Given a matrix, returns a list with the matrices L and U. If the permutation matrix is different of the identity matrix or the option permutation_matrix is set to 1, the permutation matrix is returned at the first position.

Below is a complete list of options that may be used in the lu_decomposition function.


Option Description Format Default value
permutation_matrix We can choose if the permutation matrix is showed or not. When the value equals 0, the permutation matrix is returned if and only if it is different from the identity matrix. If it is set to 1, the permutation matrix is returned always. If it is set to -1, the permutation matrix is not returned. {permutation_matrix=-1} {permutation_matrix=0}
