# Cholesky decomposition

Cholesky decomposition
You are encouraged to solve this task according to the task description, using any language you may know.

Every symmetric, positive definite matrix A can be decomposed into a product of a unique lower triangular matrix L and its transpose:

${\displaystyle A=LL^{T}}$

${\displaystyle L}$ is called the Cholesky factor of ${\displaystyle A}$, and can be interpreted as a generalized square root of ${\displaystyle A}$, as described in Cholesky decomposition.

In a 3x3 example, we have to solve the following system of equations:

{\displaystyle {\begin{aligned}A&={\begin{pmatrix}a_{11}&a_{21}&a_{31}\\a_{21}&a_{22}&a_{32}\\a_{31}&a_{32}&a_{33}\\\end{pmatrix}}\\&={\begin{pmatrix}l_{11}&0&0\\l_{21}&l_{22}&0\\l_{31}&l_{32}&l_{33}\\\end{pmatrix}}{\begin{pmatrix}l_{11}&l_{21}&l_{31}\\0&l_{22}&l_{32}\\0&0&l_{33}\end{pmatrix}}\equiv LL^{T}\\&={\begin{pmatrix}l_{11}^{2}&l_{21}l_{11}&l_{31}l_{11}\\l_{21}l_{11}&l_{21}^{2}+l_{22}^{2}&l_{31}l_{21}+l_{32}l_{22}\\l_{31}l_{11}&l_{31}l_{21}+l_{32}l_{22}&l_{31}^{2}+l_{32}^{2}+l_{33}^{2}\end{pmatrix}}\end{aligned}}}

We can see that for the diagonal elements (${\displaystyle l_{kk}}$) of ${\displaystyle L}$ there is a calculation pattern:

${\displaystyle l_{11}={\sqrt {a_{11}}}}$
${\displaystyle l_{22}={\sqrt {a_{22}-l_{21}^{2}}}}$
${\displaystyle l_{33}={\sqrt {a_{33}-(l_{31}^{2}+l_{32}^{2})}}}$

or in general:

${\displaystyle l_{kk}={\sqrt {a_{kk}-\sum _{j=1}^{k-1}l_{kj}^{2}}}}$

For the elements below the diagonal (${\displaystyle l_{ik}}$, where ${\displaystyle i>k}$) there is also a calculation pattern:

${\displaystyle l_{21}={\frac {1}{l_{11}}}a_{21}}$
${\displaystyle l_{31}={\frac {1}{l_{11}}}a_{31}}$
${\displaystyle l_{32}={\frac {1}{l_{22}}}(a_{32}-l_{31}l_{21})}$

which can also be expressed in a general formula:

${\displaystyle l_{ik}={\frac {1}{l_{kk}}}\left(a_{ik}-\sum _{j=1}^{k-1}l_{ij}l_{kj}\right)}$

The task is to implement a routine which will return a lower Cholesky factor ${\displaystyle L}$ for every given symmetric, positive definite nxn matrix ${\displaystyle A}$. You should then test it on the following two examples and include your output.

## Maple

The Cholesky decomposition is obtained by passing the method = Cholesky' option to the LUDecomposition procedure in the LinearAlgebra pacakge. This is illustrated below for the two requested examples. The first is computed exactly; the second is also, but the subsequent application of evalf' to the result produces a matrix with floating point entries which can be compared with the expected output in the problem statement. <lang Maple>> A := << 25, 15, -5; 15, 18, 0; -5, 0, 11 >>;

## VBA

This function returns the lower Cholesky decomposition of a square matrix fed to it. It does not check for positive semi-definiteness, although it does check for squareness. It assumes that Option Base 0 is set, and thus the matrix entry indices need to be adjusted if Base is set to 1. It also assumes a matrix of size less than 256x256. To handle larger matrices, change all Byte-type variables to Long. It takes the square matrix range as an input, and can be implemented as an array function on the same sized square range of cells as output. For example, if the matrix is in cells A1:E5, highlighting cells A10:E14, typing "=Cholesky(A1:E5)" and htting Ctrl-Shift-Enter will populate the target cells with the lower Cholesky decomposition.
