Compute inverse of Hermitian positive definite matrix using Cholesky factorization
Math Functions / Matrices and Linear Algebra / Matrix Inverses
The Cholesky Inverse block computes the inverse of the Hermitian positive definite input matrix S by performing Cholesky factorization.
L is a lower triangular square matrix with positive diagonal elements and L* is the Hermitian (complex conjugate) transpose of L. Only the diagonal and upper triangle of the input matrix are used, and any imaginary component of the diagonal entries is disregarded. Cholesky factorization requires half the computation of Gaussian elimination (LU decomposition), and is always stable.
The algorithm requires that the input be Hermitian positive definite. When the input is not positive definite, the block reacts with the behavior specified by the Non-positive definite input parameter. The following options are available:
Ignore — Proceed
with the computation and do not issue an alert.
The output is not a valid inverse.
Warning — Display
a warning message in the MATLAB® Command Window, and continue
the simulation. The output is not a valid inverse.
Error — Display
an error dialog box and terminate the simulation.
The Non-positive definite input parameter
is a diagnostic parameter. Like all diagnostic parameters on the Configuration
Parameters dialog box, it is set to
Response to nonpositive definite matrix inputs:
Error. See Response to Nonpositive Definite Input.
