Description

The LU Solver block solves the linear system AX=B by applying LU factorization to the M-by-M matrix at the A port. The input to the B port is the right side M-by-N matrix, B. The M-by-N matrix output X is the unique solution of the equations.

The block treats length-M unoriented vector input to the input port B as an M-by-1 matrix.

Algorithm

The LU algorithm factors a row-permuted variant (Ap) of the square input matrix A as

where L is a lower triangular square matrix with unity diagonal elements, and U is an upper triangular square matrix.

The matrix factors are substituted for Ap in

where Bp is the row-permuted variant of B, and the resulting equation

is solved for X by making the substitution Y = UX, and solving two triangular systems.

Examples
