  PlanetMath: LU decomposition
The LU factorization is closely related to the row reduction algorithm.
The key idea behind LU factorization is that one does not need to employ row scalings to do row reduction until the second half (the back-substitution phase) of the algorithm.
This is version 6 of LU decomposition, born on 2002-01-04, modified 2006-09-11.

 LU decomposition - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In linear algebra, the LU decomposition is a matrix decomposition which writes a matrix as the product of a lower and upper triangular matrix.
In fact, a square matrix of rank k has an LU factorization if the first k principal minors are non-zero.
The LU decomposition is basically a modified form of Gaussian elimination.

 Matrix Decompositions
The LU decomposition of a matrix is frequently used as part of a Gaussian elimination process for solving a matrix equation.
The first element is a combination of upper and lower triangular matrices, the second element is a vector specifying rows used for pivoting (a permutation vector which is equivalent to the permutation matrix), and the third element is an estimate of the condition number.
This factorization has a number of uses, one of which is that, because it is a triangular factorization, it can be used to solve systems of equations involving symmetric positive definite matrices.

 NMath Core User's Guide - 6.3 Using LU Factorizations
Once an LU factorization is constructed from a matrix (see Section 6.2), it can be reused to solve for different right hand sides, to compute inverses, to compute condition numbers, and so on.
Note that the length of vector v must be equal to the number of rows in the factored matrix A or a MismatchedSizeException is thrown.
You can use an LU factorization to compute inverses using the Inverse() method, and determinants using the Determinant() method.

Otherwise, the factored form of A is used to estimate the condition number of the matrix A. If the reciprocal of the condition number is less than machine precision, INFO = N+1 is returned as a warning, but the routine still goes on to solve for X and compute error bounds as described below.
The system of equations is solved for X using the factored form of A. Iterative refinement is applied to improve the computed solution matrix and calculate error bounds and backward error estimates for it.
Specifies whether or not the factored form of the matrix A is supplied on entry, and if not, whether the matrix A should be equilibrated before it is factored.

 LU (JMSL Numerical Library)
The LU factorization is done using scaled partial pivoting.
Scaled partial pivoting differs from partial pivoting in that the pivoting strategy is the same as if each row were scaled to have the same infinity norm.

 Gauss Transformation and LU-Factorization
If the LU factorization exists and A is regular, then the LU factorization is unique and
As it is known from the main course of algebra, the direct application of the Gaussian elimination, therefore also the direct realization of the LU factorization, fails if at least one of the principal minors is singular.
It turns out that for a regular matrix it is possible after an appropriate interchange of matrix rows to find the LU factotization.

 PA = LU Factorization with Pivoting
It turns out that this factorization (when it exists) is not unique.

 5.2 LU Factorization
If A is a square matrix, it has an LU factorization with a permutation matrix P, an upper triangular matrix U, and a lower triangular matrix L, such that A = PLU.
The basic idea is that an LU factorization is actually implemented as a class in the Math.h++ class library.
This approach can result in great time savings because calculating the LU factorization takes most of the time, but need be done only once.

 2 Cholesky Factorization
Given the derivation of the basic algorithm given above, it is not difficult to derive a blocked (matrix-matrix operation based) algorithm, as is shown in Fig.
Thus, the calling the calling sequence for a Cholesky factorization need only have one parameter, the object that describes the matrix.
This is an operation that is very much in the critical path, and thus contributes considerably to the overall time required for the Cholesky factorization.
