chol2inv {base}R Documentation

Inverse from Choleski Decomposition

Description

Invert a symmetric, positive definite square matrix from its Choleski decomposition.

Usage

chol2inv(x, size = NCOL(x), LINPACK = FALSE)
La.chol2inv(x, size = ncol(x))

Arguments

x a matrix. The first nc columns of the upper triangle contain the Choleski decomposition of the matrix to be inverted.
size the number of columns of x containing the Choleski decomposition.
LINPACK logical. Should LINPACK be used (for compatibility with R < 1.7.0)?

Details

chol2inv(LINPACK=TRUE) provides an interface to the LINPACK routine DPODI. La.chol2inv provides an interface to the LAPACK routine DPOTRI.

Value

The inverse of the decomposed matrix.
