Actually I am new to this topic.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I read few tutorials about LU decomposition of matrix in the net.

A = LU ; A - actual matrix, L - Lower triangular matrix, U - Upper triangular matrix.Few people say that, principal diagonal elements of L should be unity.

Some others say that, principal diagonal elements of U should be unity.

Pls clarify.

or else suggest me some suitable method for LU decomposition of a matrix.

Thanks.
