Homework Help: LU-Factorization Algorithm?

  1. Feb 11, 2007 #1
    LU-Factorization Algorithm??

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Develop an algorithm for finding directly the UL-factorization of a matrix A, where L is a unit lower triangular and U is upper triangular. Give an algorithm for solving ULx=b.

    2. Relevant equations
    I'm not sure how to tackle this problem since the book already showed us how to do Doolittle's factorization and I'm assuming they want a different method of doing the same thing..

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know how to attempt this problem.

    Thanks in advance for your help! :approve:
