## How do you do LU factorization in MATLAB?

[ L , U ] = lu( A ) factorizes the full or sparse matrix A into an upper triangular matrix U and a permuted lower triangular matrix L such that A = L*U . [ L , U , P ] = lu( A ) also returns a permutation matrix P such that A = P’*L*U . With this syntax, L is unit lower triangular and U is upper triangular.

### Does Lu in MATLAB use partial pivoting?

2. For LU-factorization using partial pivoting, we use the MATLAB function: [L,U,P] = lu(A), where P is the permutation matrix, such that PA = LU.

**How is Cholesky factorization calculated?**

The Cholesky factorization is a particular form of this factorization in which X is upper triangular with positive diagonal elements; it is usually written as A = RTR or A = LLT and it is unique. In the case of a scalar (n = 1), the Cholesky factor R is just the positive square root of A.

**What is Chol command in MATLAB?**

R = chol( A , triangle ) specifies which triangular factor of A to use in computing the factorization. For example, if triangle is ‘lower’ , then chol uses only the diagonal and lower triangular portion of A to produce a lower triangular matrix R that satisfies A = R*R’ . The default value of triangle is ‘upper’ .

## How do you use LU command in Matlab?

[L,U,p,q,R] = lu( A , ‘vector’ ) returns the permutation information in two row vectors p and q , such that R(:,p)\A(:,q) = L*U . lu( A ) returns the matrix that contains the strictly lower triangular matrix L (the matrix without its unit diagonal) and the upper triangular matrix U as submatrices.

### Is LU decomposition and Cholesky method same?

The Cholesky decomposition or Cholesky factorization is a decomposition of a Hermitian, positive-definite matrix into the product of a lower triangular matrix and its conjugate transpose. The Cholesky decomposition is roughly twice as efficient as the LU decomposition for solving systems of linear equations.

**What is Cholesky decomposition used for?**

Cholesky decomposition or factorization is a powerful numerical optimization technique that is widely used in linear algebra. It decomposes an Hermitian, positive definite matrix into a lower triangular and its conjugate component. These can later be used for optimally performing algebraic operations.
