# Linear Algebra

In addition to (and as part of) its support for multi-dimensional arrays, Julia provides native implementations of many common and useful linear algebra operations which can be loaded with `using LinearAlgebra`

. Basic operations, such as `tr`

, `det`

, and `inv`

are all supported:

```
julia> A = [1 2 3; 4 1 6; 7 8 1]
3×3 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2 3
4 1 6
7 8 1
julia> tr(A)
3
julia> det(A)
104.0
julia> inv(A)
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
-0.451923 0.211538 0.0865385
0.365385 -0.192308 0.0576923
0.240385 0.0576923 -0.0673077
```

As well as other useful operations, such as finding eigenvalues or eigenvectors:

```
julia> A = [-4. -17.; 2. 2.]
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
-4.0 -17.0
2.0 2.0
julia> eigvals(A)
2-element Vector{ComplexF64}:
-1.0 - 5.0im
-1.0 + 5.0im
julia> eigvecs(A)
2×2 Matrix{ComplexF64}:
0.945905-0.0im 0.945905+0.0im
-0.166924+0.278207im -0.166924-0.278207im
```

In addition, Julia provides many factorizations which can be used to speed up problems such as linear solve or matrix exponentiation by pre-factorizing a matrix into a form more amenable (for performance or memory reasons) to the problem. See the documentation on `factorize`

for more information. As an example:

```
julia> A = [1.5 2 -4; 3 -1 -6; -10 2.3 4]
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
3.0 -1.0 -6.0
-10.0 2.3 4.0
julia> factorize(A)
LU{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Vector{Int64}}
L factor:
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
1.0 0.0 0.0
-0.15 1.0 0.0
-0.3 -0.132196 1.0
U factor:
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
-10.0 2.3 4.0
0.0 2.345 -3.4
0.0 0.0 -5.24947
```

Since `A`

is not Hermitian, symmetric, triangular, tridiagonal, or bidiagonal, an LU factorization may be the best we can do. Compare with:

```
julia> B = [1.5 2 -4; 2 -1 -3; -4 -3 5]
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
2.0 -1.0 -3.0
-4.0 -3.0 5.0
julia> factorize(B)
BunchKaufman{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Vector{Int64}}
D factor:
3×3 Tridiagonal{Float64, Vector{Float64}}:
-1.64286 0.0 ⋅
0.0 -2.8 0.0
⋅ 0.0 5.0
U factor:
3×3 UnitUpperTriangular{Float64, Matrix{Float64}}:
1.0 0.142857 -0.8
⋅ 1.0 -0.6
⋅ ⋅ 1.0
permutation:
3-element Vector{Int64}:
1
2
3
```

Here, Julia was able to detect that `B`

is in fact symmetric, and used a more appropriate factorization. Often it's possible to write more efficient code for a matrix that is known to have certain properties e.g. it is symmetric, or tridiagonal. Julia provides some special types so that you can "tag" matrices as having these properties. For instance:

```
julia> B = [1.5 2 -4; 2 -1 -3; -4 -3 5]
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
2.0 -1.0 -3.0
-4.0 -3.0 5.0
julia> sB = Symmetric(B)
3×3 Symmetric{Float64, Matrix{Float64}}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
2.0 -1.0 -3.0
-4.0 -3.0 5.0
```

`sB`

has been tagged as a matrix that's (real) symmetric, so for later operations we might perform on it, such as eigenfactorization or computing matrix-vector products, efficiencies can be found by only referencing half of it. For example:

```
julia> B = [1.5 2 -4; 2 -1 -3; -4 -3 5]
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
2.0 -1.0 -3.0
-4.0 -3.0 5.0
julia> sB = Symmetric(B)
3×3 Symmetric{Float64, Matrix{Float64}}:
1.5 2.0 -4.0
2.0 -1.0 -3.0
-4.0 -3.0 5.0
julia> x = [1; 2; 3]
3-element Vector{Int64}:
1
2
3
julia> sB\x
3-element Vector{Float64}:
-1.7391304347826084
-1.1086956521739126
-1.4565217391304346
```

The `\`

operation here performs the linear solution. The left-division operator is pretty powerful and it's easy to write compact, readable code that is flexible enough to solve all sorts of systems of linear equations.

## Special matrices

Matrices with special symmetries and structures arise often in linear algebra and are frequently associated with various matrix factorizations. Julia features a rich collection of special matrix types, which allow for fast computation with specialized routines that are specially developed for particular matrix types.

The following tables summarize the types of special matrices that have been implemented in Julia, as well as whether hooks to various optimized methods for them in LAPACK are available.

I (interval) | An optimized method to find the characteristic values in the interval [`vl` , `vh` ] is available | `eigvals(M, vl, vh)` |

V (vectors) | An optimized method to find the characteristic vectors corresponding to the characteristic values `x=[x1, x2,...]` is available | `eigvecs(M, x)` |

### The uniform scaling operator

A `UniformScaling`

operator represents a scalar times the identity operator, `λ*I`

. The identity operator `I`

is defined as a constant and is an instance of `UniformScaling`

. The size of these operators are generic and match the other matrix in the binary operations `+`

, `-`

, `*`

and `\`

. For `A+I`

and `A-I`

this means that `A`

must be square. Multiplication with the identity operator `I`

is a noop (except for checking that the scaling factor is one) and therefore almost without overhead.

To see the `UniformScaling`

operator in action:

```
julia> U = UniformScaling(2);
julia> a = [1 2; 3 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2
3 4
julia> a + U
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
3 2
3 6
julia> a * U
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
2 4
6 8
julia> [a U]
2×4 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2 2 0
3 4 0 2
julia> b = [1 2 3; 4 5 6]
2×3 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2 3
4 5 6
julia> b - U
ERROR: DimensionMismatch: matrix is not square: dimensions are (2, 3)
Stacktrace:
[...]
```

If you need to solve many systems of the form `(A+μI)x = b`

for the same `A`

and different `μ`

, it might be beneficial to first compute the Hessenberg factorization `F`

of `A`

via the `hessenberg`

function. Given `F`

, Julia employs an efficient algorithm for `(F+μ*I) \ b`

(equivalent to `(A+μ*I)x \ b`

) and related operations like determinants.

## Matrix factorizations

Matrix factorizations (a.k.a. matrix decompositions) compute the factorization of a matrix into a product of matrices, and are one of the central concepts in (numerical) linear algebra.

The following table summarizes the types of matrix factorizations that have been implemented in Julia. Details of their associated methods can be found in the Standard functions section of the Linear Algebra documentation.

Type | Description |
---|---|

`BunchKaufman` | Bunch-Kaufman factorization |

`Cholesky` | Cholesky factorization |

`CholeskyPivoted` | Pivoted Cholesky factorization |

`LDLt` | LDL(T) factorization |

`LU` | LU factorization |

`QR` | QR factorization |

`QRCompactWY` | Compact WY form of the QR factorization |

`QRPivoted` | Pivoted QR factorization |

`LQ` | QR factorization of `transpose(A)` |

`Hessenberg` | Hessenberg decomposition |

`Eigen` | Spectral decomposition |

`GeneralizedEigen` | Generalized spectral decomposition |

`SVD` | Singular value decomposition |

`GeneralizedSVD` | Generalized SVD |

`Schur` | Schur decomposition |

`GeneralizedSchur` | Generalized Schur decomposition |

Adjoints and transposes of `Factorization`

objects are lazily wrapped in `AdjointFactorization`

and `TransposeFactorization`

objects, respectively. Generically, transpose of real `Factorization`

s are wrapped as `AdjointFactorization`

.

## Orthogonal matrices (`AbstractQ`

)

Some matrix factorizations generate orthogonal/unitary "matrix" factors. These factorizations include QR-related factorizations obtained from calls to `qr`

, i.e., `QR`

, `QRCompactWY`

and `QRPivoted`

, the Hessenberg factorization obtained from calls to `hessenberg`

, and the LQ factorization obtained from `lq`

. While these orthogonal/unitary factors admit a matrix representation, their internal representation is, for performance and memory reasons, different. Hence, they should be rather viewed as matrix-backed, function-based linear operators. In particular, reading, for instance, a column of its matrix representation requires running "matrix"-vector multiplication code, rather than simply reading out data from memory (possibly filling parts of the vector with structural zeros). Another clear distinction from other, non-triangular matrix types is that the underlying multiplication code allows for in-place modification during multiplication. Furthermore, objects of specific `AbstractQ`

subtypes as those created via `qr`

, `hessenberg`

and `lq`

can behave like a square or a rectangular matrix depending on context:

```
julia> using LinearAlgebra
julia> Q = qr(rand(3,2)).Q
3×3 LinearAlgebra.QRCompactWYQ{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Matrix{Float64}}
julia> Matrix(Q)
3×2 Matrix{Float64}:
-0.320597 0.865734
-0.765834 -0.475694
-0.557419 0.155628
julia> Q*I
3×3 Matrix{Float64}:
-0.320597 0.865734 -0.384346
-0.765834 -0.475694 -0.432683
-0.557419 0.155628 0.815514
julia> Q*ones(2)
3-element Vector{Float64}:
0.5451367118802273
-1.241527373086654
-0.40179067589600226
julia> Q*ones(3)
3-element Vector{Float64}:
0.16079054743832022
-1.674209978965636
0.41372375588835797
julia> ones(1,2) * Q'
1×3 Matrix{Float64}:
0.545137 -1.24153 -0.401791
julia> ones(1,3) * Q'
1×3 Matrix{Float64}:
0.160791 -1.67421 0.413724
```

Due to this distinction from dense or structured matrices, the abstract `AbstractQ`

type does not subtype `AbstractMatrix`

, but instead has its own type hierarchy. Custom types that subtype `AbstractQ`

can rely on generic fallbacks if the following interface is satisfied. For example, for

```
struct MyQ{T} <: LinearAlgebra.AbstractQ{T}
# required fields
end
```

provide overloads for

```
Base.size(Q::MyQ) # size of corresponding square matrix representation
Base.convert(::Type{AbstractQ{T}}, Q::MyQ) # eltype promotion [optional]
LinearAlgebra.lmul!(Q::MyQ, x::AbstractVecOrMat) # left-multiplication
LinearAlgebra.rmul!(A::AbstractMatrix, Q::MyQ) # right-multiplication
```

If `eltype`

promotion is not of interest, the `convert`

method is unnecessary, since by default `convert(::Type{AbstractQ{T}}, Q::AbstractQ{T})`

returns `Q`

itself. Adjoints of `AbstractQ`

-typed objects are lazily wrapped in an `AdjointQ`

wrapper type, which requires its own `LinearAlgebra.lmul!`

and `LinearAlgebra.rmul!`

methods. Given this set of methods, any `Q::MyQ`

can be used like a matrix, preferably in a multiplicative context: multiplication via `*`

with scalars, vectors and matrices from left and right, obtaining a matrix representation of `Q`

via `Matrix(Q)`

(or `Q*I`

) and indexing into the matrix representation all work. In contrast, addition and subtraction as well as more generally broadcasting over elements in the matrix representation fail because that would be highly inefficient. For such use cases, consider computing the matrix representation up front and cache it for future reuse.

## Pivoting Strategies

Several of Julia's matrix factorizations support pivoting, which can be used to improve their numerical stability. In fact, some matrix factorizations, such as the LU factorization, may fail without pivoting.

In pivoting, first, a pivot element with good numerical properties is chosen based on a pivoting strategy. Next, the rows and columns of the original matrix are permuted to bring the chosen element in place for subsequent computation. Furthermore, the process is repeated for each stage of the factorization.

Consequently, besides the conventional matrix factors, the outputs of pivoted factorization schemes also include permutation matrices.

In the following, the pivoting strategies implemented in Julia are briefly described. Note that not all matrix factorizations may support them. Consult the documentation of the respective matrix factorization for details on the supported pivoting strategies.

See also `LinearAlgebra.ZeroPivotException`

.

`LinearAlgebra.NoPivot`

— Type`NoPivot`

Pivoting is not performed. Matrix factorizations such as the LU factorization may fail without pivoting, and may also be numerically unstable for floating-point matrices in the face of roundoff error. This pivot strategy is mainly useful for pedagogical purposes.

`LinearAlgebra.RowNonZero`

— Type`RowNonZero`

First non-zero element in the remaining rows is chosen as the pivot element.

Beware that for floating-point matrices, the resulting LU algorithm is numerically unstable — this strategy is mainly useful for comparison to hand calculations (which typically use this strategy) or for other algebraic types (e.g. rational numbers) not susceptible to roundoff errors. Otherwise, the default `RowMaximum`

pivoting strategy should be generally preferred in Gaussian elimination.

Note that the element type of the matrix must admit an `iszero`

method.

`LinearAlgebra.RowMaximum`

— Type`RowMaximum`

The maximum-magnitude element in the remaining rows is chosen as the pivot element. This is the default strategy for LU factorization of floating-point matrices, and is sometimes referred to as the "partial pivoting" algorithm.

Note that the element type of the matrix must admit an `abs`

method, whose result type must admit a `<`

method.

`LinearAlgebra.ColumnNorm`

— Type`ColumnNorm`

The column with the maximum norm is used for subsequent computation. This is used for pivoted QR factorization.

Note that the element type of the matrix must admit `norm`

and `abs`

methods, whose respective result types must admit a `<`

method.

## Standard functions

Linear algebra functions in Julia are largely implemented by calling functions from LAPACK. Sparse matrix factorizations call functions from SuiteSparse. Other sparse solvers are available as Julia packages.

`Base.:*`

— Method`*(A::AbstractMatrix, B::AbstractMatrix)`

Matrix multiplication.

**Examples**

```
julia> [1 1; 0 1] * [1 0; 1 1]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
2 1
1 1
```

`Base.:*`

— Method```
*(A, B::AbstractMatrix, C)
A * B * C * D
```

Chained multiplication of 3 or 4 matrices is done in the most efficient sequence, based on the sizes of the arrays. That is, the number of scalar multiplications needed for `(A * B) * C`

(with 3 dense matrices) is compared to that for `A * (B * C)`

to choose which of these to execute.

If the last factor is a vector, or the first a transposed vector, then it is efficient to deal with these first. In particular `x' * B * y`

means `(x' * B) * y`

for an ordinary column-major `B::Matrix`

. Unlike `dot(x, B, y)`

, this allocates an intermediate array.

If the first or last factor is a number, this will be fused with the matrix multiplication, using 5-arg `mul!`

.

These optimisations require at least Julia 1.7.

`Base.:\`

— Method`\(A, B)`

Matrix division using a polyalgorithm. For input matrices `A`

and `B`

, the result `X`

is such that `A*X == B`

when `A`

is square. The solver that is used depends upon the structure of `A`

. If `A`

is upper or lower triangular (or diagonal), no factorization of `A`

is required and the system is solved with either forward or backward substitution. For non-triangular square matrices, an LU factorization is used.

For rectangular `A`

the result is the minimum-norm least squares solution computed by a pivoted QR factorization of `A`

and a rank estimate of `A`

based on the R factor.

When `A`

is sparse, a similar polyalgorithm is used. For indefinite matrices, the `LDLt`

factorization does not use pivoting during the numerical factorization and therefore the procedure can fail even for invertible matrices.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 0; 1 -2]; B = [32; -4];
julia> X = A \ B
2-element Vector{Float64}:
32.0
18.0
julia> A * X == B
true
```

`Base.:/`

— Method`A / B`

Matrix right-division: `A / B`

is equivalent to `(B' \ A')'`

where `\`

is the left-division operator. For square matrices, the result `X`

is such that `A == X*B`

.

See also: `rdiv!`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = Float64[1 4 5; 3 9 2]; B = Float64[1 4 2; 3 4 2; 8 7 1];
julia> X = A / B
2×3 Matrix{Float64}:
-0.65 3.75 -1.2
3.25 -2.75 1.0
julia> isapprox(A, X*B)
true
julia> isapprox(X, A*pinv(B))
true
```

`LinearAlgebra.SingularException`

— Type`SingularException`

Exception thrown when the input matrix has one or more zero-valued eigenvalues, and is not invertible. A linear solve involving such a matrix cannot be computed. The `info`

field indicates the location of (one of) the singular value(s).

`LinearAlgebra.PosDefException`

— Type`PosDefException`

Exception thrown when the input matrix was not positive definite. Some linear algebra functions and factorizations are only applicable to positive definite matrices. The `info`

field indicates the location of (one of) the eigenvalue(s) which is (are) less than/equal to 0.

`LinearAlgebra.ZeroPivotException`

— Type`ZeroPivotException <: Exception`

Exception thrown when a matrix factorization/solve encounters a zero in a pivot (diagonal) position and cannot proceed. This may *not* mean that the matrix is singular: it may be fruitful to switch to a different factorization such as pivoted LU that can re-order variables to eliminate spurious zero pivots. The `info`

field indicates the location of (one of) the zero pivot(s).

`LinearAlgebra.RankDeficientException`

— Type`RankDeficientException`

Exception thrown when the input matrix is rank deficient. Some linear algebra functions, such as the Cholesky decomposition, are only applicable to matrices that are not rank deficient. The `info`

field indicates the computed rank of the matrix.

`LinearAlgebra.LAPACKException`

— Type`LAPACKException`

Generic LAPACK exception thrown either during direct calls to the LAPACK functions or during calls to other functions that use the LAPACK functions internally but lack specialized error handling. The `info`

field contains additional information on the underlying error and depends on the LAPACK function that was invoked.

`LinearAlgebra.dot`

— Function```
dot(x, y)
x ⋅ y
```

Compute the dot product between two vectors. For complex vectors, the first vector is conjugated.

`dot`

also works on arbitrary iterable objects, including arrays of any dimension, as long as `dot`

is defined on the elements.

`dot`

is semantically equivalent to `sum(dot(vx,vy) for (vx,vy) in zip(x, y))`

, with the added restriction that the arguments must have equal lengths.

`x ⋅ y`

(where `⋅`

can be typed by tab-completing `\cdot`

in the REPL) is a synonym for `dot(x, y)`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> dot([1; 1], [2; 3])
5
julia> dot([im; im], [1; 1])
0 - 2im
julia> dot(1:5, 2:6)
70
julia> x = fill(2., (5,5));
julia> y = fill(3., (5,5));
julia> dot(x, y)
150.0
```

`LinearAlgebra.dot`

— Method`dot(x, A, y)`

Compute the generalized dot product `dot(x, A*y)`

between two vectors `x`

and `y`

, without storing the intermediate result of `A*y`

. As for the two-argument `dot(_,_)`

, this acts recursively. Moreover, for complex vectors, the first vector is conjugated.

Three-argument `dot`

requires at least Julia 1.4.

**Examples**

```
julia> dot([1; 1], [1 2; 3 4], [2; 3])
26
julia> dot(1:5, reshape(1:25, 5, 5), 2:6)
4850
julia> ⋅(1:5, reshape(1:25, 5, 5), 2:6) == dot(1:5, reshape(1:25, 5, 5), 2:6)
true
```

`LinearAlgebra.cross`

— Function```
cross(x, y)
×(x,y)
```

Compute the cross product of two 3-vectors.

**Examples**

```
julia> a = [0;1;0]
3-element Vector{Int64}:
0
1
0
julia> b = [0;0;1]
3-element Vector{Int64}:
0
0
1
julia> cross(a,b)
3-element Vector{Int64}:
1
0
0
```

`LinearAlgebra.axpy!`

— Function`axpy!(α, x::AbstractArray, y::AbstractArray)`

Overwrite `y`

with `x * α + y`

and return `y`

. If `x`

and `y`

have the same axes, it's equivalent with `y .+= x .* a`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> x = [1; 2; 3];
julia> y = [4; 5; 6];
julia> axpy!(2, x, y)
3-element Vector{Int64}:
6
9
12
```

`LinearAlgebra.axpby!`

— Function`axpby!(α, x::AbstractArray, β, y::AbstractArray)`

Overwrite `y`

with `x * α + y * β`

and return `y`

. If `x`

and `y`

have the same axes, it's equivalent with `y .= x .* a .+ y .* β`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> x = [1; 2; 3];
julia> y = [4; 5; 6];
julia> axpby!(2, x, 2, y)
3-element Vector{Int64}:
10
14
18
```

`LinearAlgebra.rotate!`

— Function`rotate!(x, y, c, s)`

Overwrite `x`

with `c*x + s*y`

and `y`

with `-conj(s)*x + c*y`

. Returns `x`

and `y`

.

`rotate!`

requires at least Julia 1.5.

`LinearAlgebra.reflect!`

— Function`reflect!(x, y, c, s)`

Overwrite `x`

with `c*x + s*y`

and `y`

with `conj(s)*x - c*y`

. Returns `x`

and `y`

.

`reflect!`

requires at least Julia 1.5.

`LinearAlgebra.factorize`

— Function`factorize(A)`

Compute a convenient factorization of `A`

, based upon the type of the input matrix. `factorize`

checks `A`

to see if it is symmetric/triangular/etc. if `A`

is passed as a generic matrix. `factorize`

checks every element of `A`

to verify/rule out each property. It will short-circuit as soon as it can rule out symmetry/triangular structure. The return value can be reused for efficient solving of multiple systems. For example: `A=factorize(A); x=A\b; y=A\C`

.

Properties of `A` | type of factorization |
---|---|

Positive-definite | Cholesky (see `cholesky` ) |

Dense Symmetric/Hermitian | Bunch-Kaufman (see `bunchkaufman` ) |

Sparse Symmetric/Hermitian | LDLt (see `ldlt` ) |

Triangular | Triangular |

Diagonal | Diagonal |

Bidiagonal | Bidiagonal |

Tridiagonal | LU (see `lu` ) |

Symmetric real tridiagonal | LDLt (see `ldlt` ) |

General square | LU (see `lu` ) |

General non-square | QR (see `qr` ) |

If `factorize`

is called on a Hermitian positive-definite matrix, for instance, then `factorize`

will return a Cholesky factorization.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = Array(Bidiagonal(fill(1.0, (5, 5)), :U))
5×5 Matrix{Float64}:
1.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0
0.0 1.0 1.0 0.0 0.0
0.0 0.0 1.0 1.0 0.0
0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 1.0
0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0
julia> factorize(A) # factorize will check to see that A is already factorized
5×5 Bidiagonal{Float64, Vector{Float64}}:
1.0 1.0 ⋅ ⋅ ⋅
⋅ 1.0 1.0 ⋅ ⋅
⋅ ⋅ 1.0 1.0 ⋅
⋅ ⋅ ⋅ 1.0 1.0
⋅ ⋅ ⋅ ⋅ 1.0
```

This returns a `5×5 Bidiagonal{Float64}`

, which can now be passed to other linear algebra functions (e.g. eigensolvers) which will use specialized methods for `Bidiagonal`

types.

`LinearAlgebra.Diagonal`

— Type`Diagonal(V::AbstractVector)`

Construct a lazy matrix with `V`

as its diagonal.

See also `UniformScaling`

for the lazy identity matrix `I`

, `diagm`

to make a dense matrix, and `diag`

to extract diagonal elements.

**Examples**

```
julia> d = Diagonal([1, 10, 100])
3×3 Diagonal{Int64, Vector{Int64}}:

A one-column matrix is not treated like a vector, but instead calls the method `Diagonal(A::AbstractMatrix)`

which extracts 1-element `diag(A)`

:

```
julia> A = transpose([7.0 13.0])
2×1 transpose(::Matrix{Float64}) with eltype Float64:
7.0
13.0
julia> Diagonal(A)
1×1 Diagonal{Float64, Vector{Float64}}:

) or lower (`uplo=:L`

) bidiagonal matrix using the given diagonal (`dv`

) and off-diagonal (`ev`

) vectors. The result is of type `Bidiagonal`

and provides efficient specialized linear solvers, but may be converted into a regular matrix with `convert(Array, _)`

(or `Array(_)`

for short). The length of `ev`

must be one less than the length of `dv`

.

**Examples**

```

`LinearAlgebra.SymTridiagonal`

— Type`SymTridiagonal(dv::V, ev::V) where V <: AbstractVector`

Construct a symmetric tridiagonal matrix from the diagonal (`dv`

) and first sub/super-diagonal (`ev`

), respectively. The result is of type `SymTridiagonal`

and provides efficient specialized eigensolvers, but may be converted into a regular matrix with `convert(Array, _)`

(or `Array(_)`

for short).

For `SymTridiagonal`

block matrices, the elements of `dv`

are symmetrized. The argument `ev`

is interpreted as the superdiagonal. Blocks from the subdiagonal are (materialized) transpose of the corresponding superdiagonal blocks.

```

`LinearAlgebra.Tridiagonal`

— Type`Tridiagonal(dl::V, d::V, du::V) where V <: AbstractVector`

Construct a tridiagonal matrix from the first subdiagonal, diagonal, and first superdiagonal, respectively. The result is of type `Tridiagonal`

and provides efficient specialized linear solvers, but may be converted into a regular matrix with `convert(Array, _)`

(or `Array(_)`

for short). The lengths of `dl`

and `du`

must be one less than the length of `d`

.

The subdiagonal `dl`

and the superdiagonal `du`

must not be aliased to each other. If aliasing is detected, the constructor will use a copy of `du`

as its argument.

**Examples**

```
julia> dl = [1, 2, 3];
julia> du = [4, 5, 6];
julia> d = [7, 8, 9, 0];
julia> Tridiagonal(dl, d, du)

`LinearAlgebra.Symmetric`

— Type`Symmetric(A, uplo=:U)`

Construct a `Symmetric`

view of the upper (if `uplo = :U`

) or lower (if `uplo = :L`

) triangle of the matrix `A`

.

`Symmetric`

views are mainly useful for real-symmetric matrices, for which specialized algorithms (e.g. for eigenproblems) are enabled for `Symmetric`

types. More generally, see also `Hermitian(A)`

for Hermitian matrices `A == A'`

, which is effectively equivalent to `Symmetric`

for real matrices but is also useful for complex matrices. (Whereas complex `Symmetric`

matrices are supported but have few if any specialized algorithms.)

To compute the symmetric part of a real matrix, or more generally the Hermitian part `(A + A') / 2`

of a real or complex matrix `A`

, use `hermitianpart`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 2 3; 4 5 6; 7 8 9]
3×3 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9
julia> Supper = Symmetric(A)
3×3 Symmetric{Int64, Matrix{Int64}}:

3×3 Hermitian{Float64, Matrix{Float64}}:
1.0 3.0 5.0
3.0 5.0 7.0
5.0 7.0 9.0
```

Note that `Supper`

will not be equal to `Slower`

unless `A`

is itself symmetric (e.g. if `A == transpose(A)`

).

`LinearAlgebra.Hermitian`

— Type`Hermitian(A, uplo=:U)`

Construct a `Hermitian`

view of the upper (if `uplo = :U`

) or lower (if `uplo = :L`

) triangle of the matrix `A`

.

To compute the Hermitian part of `A`

, use `hermitianpart`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 2+2im 3-3im; 4 5 6-6im; 7 8+8im 9]
3×3 Matrix{Complex{Int64}}:
1+0im 2+2im 3-3im

3.0-1.0im 5.0+0.0im 7.0-7.0im
5.0+1.5im 7.0+7.0im 9.0+0.0im
```

Note that `Hupper`

will not be equal to `Hlower`

unless `A`

is itself Hermitian (e.g. if `A == adjoint(A)`

).

All non-real parts of the diagonal will be ignored.

`Hermitian(fill(complex(1,1), 1, 1)) == fill(1, 1, 1)`

`LinearAlgebra.UpperHessenberg`

— Type`UpperHessenberg(A::AbstractMatrix)`

Construct an `UpperHessenberg`

view of the matrix `A`

. Entries of `A`

below the first subdiagonal are ignored.

This type was added in Julia 1.3.

Efficient algorithms are implemented for `H \ b`

, `det(H)`

, and similar.

See also the `hessenberg`

function to factor any matrix into a similar upper-Hessenberg matrix.

If `F::Hessenberg`

is the factorization object, the unitary matrix can be accessed with `F.Q`

and the Hessenberg matrix with `F.H`

. When `Q`

is extracted, the resulting type is the `HessenbergQ`

object, and may be converted to a regular matrix with `convert(Array, _)`

(or `Array(_)`

for short).

Iterating the decomposition produces the factors `F.Q`

and `F.H`

.

**Examples**

`LinearAlgebra.UniformScaling`

— Type`UniformScaling{T<:Number}`

Generically sized uniform scaling operator defined as a scalar times the identity operator, `λ*I`

. Although without an explicit `size`

, it acts similarly to a matrix in many cases and includes support for some indexing. See also `I`

.

Indexing using ranges is available as of Julia 1.6.

**Examples**

`LinearAlgebra.Factorization`

— Type`LinearAlgebra.Factorization`

Abstract type for matrix factorizations a.k.a. matrix decompositions. See online documentation for a list of available matrix factorizations.

`LinearAlgebra.LU`

— Type`LU <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the `LU`

factorization of a square matrix `A`

. This is the return type of `lu`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

The individual components of the factorization `F::LU`

can be accessed via `getproperty`

:

Component | Description |
---|---|

`F.L` | `L` (unit lower triangular) part of `LU` |

`F.U` | `U` (upper triangular) part of `LU` |

`F.p` | (right) permutation `Vector` |

`F.P` | (right) permutation `Matrix` |

Iterating the factorization produces the components `F.L`

, `F.U`

, and `F.p`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [4 3; 6 3]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
4 3
6 3
julia> F = lu(A)
LU{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Vector{Int64}}
L factor:
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
1.0 0.0
0.666667 1.0
U factor:
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
6.0 3.0
0.0 1.0
julia> F.L * F.U == A[F.p, :]
true
julia> l, u, p = lu(A); # destructuring via iteration
julia> l == F.L && u == F.U && p == F.p
true
```

`LinearAlgebra.lu`

— Function`lu(A::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC; check = true, q = nothing, control = get_umfpack_control()) -> F::UmfpackLU`

Compute the LU factorization of a sparse matrix `A`

.

For sparse `A`

with real or complex element type, the return type of `F`

is `UmfpackLU{Tv, Ti}`

, with `Tv`

= `Float64`

or `ComplexF64`

respectively and `Ti`

is an integer type (`Int32`

or `Int64`

).

When `check = true`

, an error is thrown if the decomposition fails. When `check = false`

, responsibility for checking the decomposition's validity (via `issuccess`

) lies with the user.

The permutation `q`

can either be a permutation vector or `nothing`

. If no permutation vector is provided or `q`

is `nothing`

, UMFPACK's default is used. If the permutation is not zero-based, a zero-based copy is made.

The `control`

vector defaults to the Julia SparseArrays package's default configuration for UMFPACK (NB: this is modified from the UMFPACK defaults to disable iterative refinement), but can be changed by passing a vector of length `UMFPACK_CONTROL`

, see the UMFPACK manual for possible configurations. For example to reenable iterative refinement:

```
umfpack_control = SparseArrays.UMFPACK.get_umfpack_control(Float64, Int64) # read Julia default configuration for a Float64 sparse matrix
SparseArrays.UMFPACK.show_umf_ctrl(umfpack_control) # optional - display values
umfpack_control[SparseArrays.UMFPACK.JL_UMFPACK_IRSTEP] = 2.0 # reenable iterative refinement (2 is UMFPACK default max iterative refinement steps)
Alu = lu(A; control = umfpack_control)
x = Alu \ b # solve Ax = b, including UMFPACK iterative refinement
```

The individual components of the factorization `F`

can be accessed by indexing:

Component | Description |
---|---|

`L` | `L` (lower triangular) part of `LU` |

`U` | `U` (upper triangular) part of `LU` |

`p` | right permutation `Vector` |

`q` | left permutation `Vector` |

`Rs` | `Vector` of scaling factors |

`:` | `(L,U,p,q,Rs)` components |

The relation between `F`

and `A`

is

`F.L*F.U == (F.Rs .* A)[F.p, F.q]`

`F`

further supports the following functions:

See also `lu!`

`lu(A::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC)`

uses the UMFPACK^{[ACM832]} library that is part of SuiteSparse. As this library only supports sparse matrices with `Float64`

or `ComplexF64`

elements, `lu`

converts `A`

into a copy that is of type `SparseMatrixCSC{Float64}`

or `SparseMatrixCSC{ComplexF64}`

as appropriate.

`lu(A, pivot = RowMaximum(); check = true, allowsingular = false) -> F::LU`

Compute the LU factorization of `A`

.

When `check = true`

, an error is thrown if the decomposition fails. When `check = false`

, responsibility for checking the decomposition's validity (via `issuccess`

) lies with the user.

By default, with `check = true`

, an error is also thrown when the decomposition produces valid factors, but the upper-triangular factor `U`

is rank-deficient. This may be changed by passing `allowsingular = true`

.

In most cases, if `A`

is a subtype `S`

of `AbstractMatrix{T}`

with an element type `T`

supporting `+`

, `-`

, `*`

and `/`

, the return type is `LU{T,S{T}}`

.

In general, LU factorization involves a permutation of the rows of the matrix (corresponding to the `F.p`

output described below), known as "pivoting" (because it corresponds to choosing which row contains the "pivot", the diagonal entry of `F.U`

). One of the following pivoting strategies can be selected via the optional `pivot`

argument:

`RowMaximum()`

(default): the standard pivoting strategy; the pivot corresponds to the element of maximum absolute value among the remaining, to be factorized rows. This pivoting strategy requires the element type to also support`abs`

and`<`

. (This is generally the only numerically stable option for floating-point matrices.)`RowNonZero()`

: the pivot corresponds to the first non-zero element among the remaining, to be factorized rows. (This corresponds to the typical choice in hand calculations, and is also useful for more general algebraic number types that support`iszero`

but not`abs`

or`<`

.)`NoPivot()`

: pivoting turned off (will fail if a zero entry is encountered in a pivot position, even when`allowsingular = true`

).

The individual components of the factorization `F`

can be accessed via `getproperty`

:

Component | Description |
---|---|

`LinearAlgebra.lu!`

— Function`lu!(F::UmfpackLU, A::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC; check=true, reuse_symbolic=true, q=nothing) -> F::UmfpackLU`

Compute the LU factorization of a sparse matrix `A`

, reusing the symbolic factorization of an already existing LU factorization stored in `F`

. Unless `reuse_symbolic`

is set to false, the sparse matrix `A`

must have an identical nonzero pattern as the matrix used to create the LU factorization `F`

, otherwise an error is thrown. If the size of `A`

and `F`

differ, all vectors will be resized accordingly.

When `check = true`

, an error is thrown if the decomposition fails. When `check = false`

, responsibility for checking the decomposition's validity (via `issuccess`

) lies with the user.

The permutation `q`

can either be a permutation vector or `nothing`

. If no permutation vector is provided or `q`

is `nothing`

, UMFPACK's default is used. If the permutation is not zero based, a zero based copy is made.

See also `lu`

`lu!(F::UmfpackLU, A::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC)`

uses the UMFPACK library that is part of SuiteSparse. As this library only supports sparse matrices with `Float64`

or `ComplexF64`

elements, `lu!`

will automatically convert the types to those set by the LU factorization or `SparseMatrixCSC{ComplexF64}`

as appropriate.

`lu!`

for `UmfpackLU`

requires at least Julia 1.5.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = sparse(Float64[1.0 2.0; 0.0 3.0]);
julia> F = lu(A);
julia> B = sparse(Float64[1.0 1.0; 0.0 1.0]);
julia> lu!(F, B);
julia> F \ ones(2)
2-element Vector{Float64}:
0.0
1.0
```

`lu!(A, pivot = RowMaximum(); check = true, allowsingular = false) -> LU`

`lu!`

is the same as `lu`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

, instead of creating a copy. An `InexactError`

exception is thrown if the factorization produces a number not representable by the element type of `A`

, e.g. for integer types.

The `allowsingular`

keyword argument was added in Julia 1.11.

`cholesky(A::SparseMatrixCSC; shift = 0.0, check = true, perm = nothing) -> CHOLMOD.Factor`

Compute the Cholesky factorization of a sparse positive definite matrix `A`

. `A`

must be a `SparseMatrixCSC`

or a `Symmetric`

/`Hermitian`

view of a `SparseMatrixCSC`

. Note that even if `A`

doesn't have the type tag, it must still be symmetric or Hermitian. If `perm`

is not given, a fill-reducing permutation is used. `F = cholesky(A)`

is most frequently used to solve systems of equations with `F\b`

, but also the methods `diag`

, `det`

, and `logdet`

are defined for `F`

. You can also extract individual factors from `F`

, using `F.L`

. However, since pivoting is on by default, the factorization is internally represented as `A == P'*L*L'*P`

with a permutation matrix `P`

; using just `L`

without accounting for `P`

will give incorrect answers. To include the effects of permutation, it's typically preferable to extract "combined" factors like `PtL = F.PtL`

(the equivalent of `P'*L`

) and `LtP = F.UP`

(the equivalent of `L'*P`

).

`check = true`

, an error is thrown if the decomposition fails. When `check = false`

, responsibility for checking the decomposition's validity (via `issuccess`

) lies with the user.

Setting the optional `shift`

keyword argument computes the factorization of `A+shift*I`

instead of `A`

. If the `perm`

argument is provided, it should be a permutation of `1:size(A,1)`

giving the ordering to use (instead of CHOLMOD's default AMD ordering).

**Examples**

In the following example, the fill-reducing permutation used is `[3, 2, 1]`

. If `perm`

is set to `1:3`

to enforce no permutation, the number of nonzero elements in the factor is 6.

will give incorrect answers. To include the effects of permutation, it is typically preferable to extract "combined" factors like `PtL = F.PtL`

(the equivalent of `P'*L`

) and `LtP = F.UP`

(the equivalent of `L'*P`

). The complete list of supported factors is `:L, :PtL, :D, :UP, :U, :LD, :DU, :PtLD, :DUP`

.

`check = true`

, an error is thrown if the decomposition fails. When `check = false`

, responsibility for checking the decomposition's validity (via `issuccess`

) lies with the user.

Setting the optional `shift`

keyword argument computes the factorization of `A+shift*I`

instead of `A`

. If the `perm`

argument is provided, it should be a permutation of `1:size(A,1)`

giving the ordering to use (instead of CHOLMOD's default AMD ordering).

This method uses the CHOLMOD^{[ACM887]}^{[DavisHager2009]} library from SuiteSparse. CHOLMOD only supports real or complex types in single or double precision. Input matrices not of those element types will be converted to these types as appropriate.

Many other functions from CHOLMOD are wrapped but not exported from the `Base.SparseArrays.CHOLMOD`

module.

`LinearAlgebra.ldlt!`

— Function`ldlt!(S::SymTridiagonal) -> LDLt`

Same as `ldlt`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `S`

, instead of creating a copy.

**Examples**

```
julia> S = SymTridiagonal([3., 4., 5.], [1., 2.])
3×3 SymTridiagonal{Float64, Vector{Float64}}:
3.0 1.0 ⋅
1.0 4.0 2.0
⋅ 2.0 5.0
julia> ldltS = ldlt!(S);
julia> ldltS === S
false
julia> S
3×3 SymTridiagonal{Float64, Vector{Float64}}:
3.0 0.333333 ⋅
0.333333 3.66667 0.545455
⋅ 0.545455 3.90909
```

`ldlt!(F::CHOLMOD.Factor, A::SparseMatrixCSC; shift = 0.0, check = true) -> CHOLMOD.Factor`

Compute the $LDL'$ factorization of `A`

, reusing the symbolic factorization `F`

. `A`

must be a `SparseMatrixCSC`

or a `Symmetric`

/`Hermitian`

view of a `SparseMatrixCSC`

. Note that even if `A`

doesn't have the type tag, it must still be symmetric or Hermitian.

See also `ldlt`

.

This method uses the CHOLMOD library from SuiteSparse, which only supports real or complex types in single or double precision. Input matrices not of those element types will be converted to these types as appropriate.

`LinearAlgebra.QR`

— Type`QR <: Factorization`

A QR matrix factorization stored in a packed format, typically obtained from `qr`

. If $A$ is an `m`

×`n`

matrix, then

\[A = Q R\]

where $Q$ is an orthogonal/unitary matrix and $R$ is upper triangular. The matrix $Q$ is stored as a sequence of Householder reflectors $v_i$ and coefficients $\tau_i$ where:

\[Q = \prod_{i=1}^{\min(m,n)} (I - \tau_i v_i v_i^T).\]

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `Q`

and `R`

.

The object has two fields:

`factors`

is an`m`

×`n`

matrix.The upper triangular part contains the elements of $R$, that is

`R = triu(F.factors)`

for a`QR`

object`F`

.The subdiagonal part contains the reflectors $v_i$ stored in a packed format where $v_i$ is the $i$th column of the matrix

`V = I + tril(F.factors, -1)`

.

`τ`

is a vector of length`min(m,n)`

containing the coefficients $au_i$.

`LinearAlgebra.QRCompactWY`

— Type`QRCompactWY <: Factorization`

A QR matrix factorization stored in a compact blocked format, typically obtained from `qr`

. If $A$ is an `m`

×`n`

matrix, then

\[A = Q R\]

where $Q$ is an orthogonal/unitary matrix and $R$ is upper triangular. It is similar to the `QR`

format except that the orthogonal/unitary matrix $Q$ is stored in *Compact WY* format ^{[Schreiber1989]}. For the block size $n_b$, it is stored as a `m`

×`n`

lower trapezoidal matrix $V$ and a matrix $T = (T_1 \; T_2 \; ... \; T_{b-1} \; T_b')$ composed of $b = \lceil \min(m,n) / n_b \rceil$ upper triangular matrices $T_j$ of size $n_b$×$n_b$ ($j = 1, ..., b-1$) and an upper trapezoidal $n_b$×$\min(m,n) - (b-1) n_b$ matrix $T_b'$ ($j=b$) whose upper square part denoted with $T_b$ satisfying

\[Q = \prod_{i=1}^{\min(m,n)} (I - \tau_i v_i v_i^T) = \prod_{j=1}^{b} (I - V_j T_j V_j^T)\]

such that $v_i$ is the $i$th column of $V$, $\tau_i$ is the $i$th element of `[diag(T_1); diag(T_2); …; diag(T_b)]`

, and $(V_1 \; V_2 \; ... \; V_b)$ is the left `m`

×`min(m, n)`

block of $V$. When constructed using `qr`

, the block size is given by $n_b = \min(m, n, 36)$.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `Q`

and `R`

.

The object has two fields:

`factors`

, as in the`QR`

type, is an`m`

×`n`

matrix.The upper triangular part contains the elements of $R$, that is

`R = triu(F.factors)`

for a`QR`

object`F`

.The subdiagonal part contains the reflectors $v_i$ stored in a packed format such that

`V = I + tril(F.factors, -1)`

.

`T`

is a $n_b$-by-$\min(m,n)$ matrix as described above. The subdiagonal elements for each triangular matrix $T_j$ are ignored.

This format should not to be confused with the older *WY* representation ^{[Bischof1987]}.

`LinearAlgebra.QRPivoted`

— Type`QRPivoted <: Factorization`

A QR matrix factorization with column pivoting in a packed format, typically obtained from `qr`

. If $A$ is an `m`

×`n`

matrix, then

\[A P = Q R\]

where $P$ is a permutation matrix, $Q$ is an orthogonal/unitary matrix and $R$ is upper triangular. The matrix $Q$ is stored as a sequence of Householder reflectors:

\[Q = \prod_{i=1}^{\min(m,n)} (I - \tau_i v_i v_i^T).\]

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `Q`

, `R`

, and `p`

.

The object has three fields:

`factors`

is an`m`

×`n`

matrix.The upper triangular part contains the elements of $R$, that is

`R = triu(F.factors)`

for a`QR`

object`F`

.The subdiagonal part contains the reflectors $v_i$ stored in a packed format where $v_i$ is the $i$th column of the matrix

`V = I + tril(F.factors, -1)`

.

`τ`

is a vector of length`min(m,n)`

containing the coefficients $au_i$.`jpvt`

is an integer vector of length`n`

corresponding to the permutation $P$.

`LinearAlgebra.qr`

— Function`qr(A::SparseMatrixCSC; tol=_default_tol(A), ordering=ORDERING_DEFAULT) -> QRSparse`

Compute the `QR`

factorization of a sparse matrix `A`

. Fill-reducing row and column permutations are used such that `F.R = F.Q'*A[F.prow,F.pcol]`

. The main application of this type is to solve least squares or underdetermined problems with `\`

. The function calls the C library SPQR^{[ACM933]}.

`qr(A::SparseMatrixCSC)`

uses the SPQR library that is part of SuiteSparse. As this library only supports sparse matrices with `Float64`

or `ComplexF64`

elements, as of Julia v1.4 `qr`

converts `A`

into a copy that is of type `SparseMatrixCSC{Float64}`

or `SparseMatrixCSC{ComplexF64}`

as appropriate.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = sparse([1,2,3,4], [1,1,2,2], [1.0,1.0,1.0,1.0])
4×2 SparseMatrixCSC{Float64, Int64} with 4 stored entries:
1.0 ⋅
1.0 ⋅
⋅ 1.0
⋅ 1.0
julia> qr(A)
SparseArrays.SPQR.QRSparse{Float64, Int64}
Q factor:

```

`qr(A, pivot = NoPivot(); blocksize) -> F`

Compute the QR factorization of the matrix `A`

: an orthogonal (or unitary if `A`

is complex-valued) matrix `Q`

, and an upper triangular matrix `R`

such that

\[A = Q R\]

The returned object `F`

stores the factorization in a packed format:

if

`pivot == ColumnNorm()`

then`F`

is a`QRPivoted`

object,otherwise if the element type of

`A`

is a BLAS type (`Float32`

,`Float64`

,`ComplexF32`

or`ComplexF64`

), then`F`

is a`QRCompactWY`

object,otherwise

`F`

is a`QR`

object.

The individual components of the decomposition `F`

can be retrieved via property accessors:

`F.Q`

: the orthogonal/unitary matrix`Q`

`F.R`

: the upper triangular matrix`R`

`F.p`

: the permutation vector of the pivot (`QRPivoted`

only)`F.P`

: the permutation matrix of the pivot (`QRPivoted`

only)

Each reference to the upper triangular factor via `F.R`

allocates a new array. It is therefore advisable to cache that array, say, by `R = F.R`

and continue working with `R`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `Q`

, `R`

, and if extant `p`

.

The following functions are available for the `QR`

objects: `inv`

, `size`

, and `\`

. When `A`

is rectangular, `\`

will return a least squares solution and if the solution is not unique, the one with smallest norm is returned. When `A`

is not full rank, factorization with (column) pivoting is required to obtain a minimum norm solution.

Multiplication with respect to either full/square or non-full/square `Q`

is allowed, i.e. both `F.Q*F.R`

and `F.Q*A`

are supported. A `Q`

matrix can be converted into a regular matrix with `Matrix`

. This operation returns the "thin" Q factor, i.e., if `A`

is `m`

×`n`

with `m>=n`

, then `Matrix(F.Q)`

yields an `m`

×`n`

matrix with orthonormal columns. To retrieve the "full" Q factor, an `m`

×`m`

orthogonal matrix, use `F.Q*I`

or `collect(F.Q)`

. If `m<=n`

, then `Matrix(F.Q)`

yields an `m`

×`m`

orthogonal matrix.

The block size for QR decomposition can be specified by keyword argument `blocksize :: Integer`

when `pivot == NoPivot()`

and `A isa StridedMatrix{<:BlasFloat}`

. It is ignored when `blocksize > minimum(size(A))`

. See `QRCompactWY`

.

The `blocksize`

keyword argument requires Julia 1.4 or later.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [3.0 -6.0; 4.0 -8.0; 0.0 1.0]
3×2 Matrix{Float64}:
3.0 -6.0
4.0 -8.0
0.0 1.0
julia> F = qr(A)
LinearAlgebra.QRCompactWY{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Matrix{Float64}}
Q factor: 3×3 LinearAlgebra.QRCompactWYQ{Float64, Matrix{Float64}, Matrix{Float64}}
R factor:
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
-5.0 10.0
0.0 -1.0
julia> F.Q * F.R == A
true
```

`qr`

returns multiple types because LAPACK uses several representations that minimize the memory storage requirements of products of Householder elementary reflectors, so that the `Q`

and `R`

matrices can be stored compactly rather as two separate dense matrices.

`LinearAlgebra.qr!`

— Function`qr!(A, pivot = NoPivot(); blocksize)`

`qr!`

is the same as `qr`

when `A`

is a subtype of `AbstractMatrix`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

, instead of creating a copy. An `InexactError`

exception is thrown if the factorization produces a number not representable by the element type of `A`

, e.g. for integer types.

The `blocksize`

keyword argument requires Julia 1.4 or later.

**Examples**

```
julia> a = [1. 2.; 3. 4.]
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
1.0 2.0
3.0 4.0
julia> qr!(a)

`LinearAlgebra.LQ`

— Type`LQ <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the `LQ`

factorization of a matrix `A`

. The `LQ`

decomposition is the `QR`

decomposition of `transpose(A)`

. This is the return type of `lq`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

If `S::LQ`

is the factorization object, the lower triangular component can be obtained via `S.L`

, and the orthogonal/unitary component via `S.Q`

, such that `A ≈ S.L*S.Q`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `S.L`

and `S.Q`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [5. 7.; -2. -4.]
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
5.0 7.0
-2.0 -4.0
julia> S = lq(A)

julia> l, q = S; # destructuring via iteration
julia> l == S.L && q == S.Q

```

`LinearAlgebra.lq`

— Function`lq(A) -> S::LQ`

Compute the LQ decomposition of `A`

. The decomposition's lower triangular component can be obtained from the `LQ`

object `S`

via `S.L`

, and the orthogonal/unitary component via `S.Q`

, such that `A ≈ S.L*S.Q`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `S.L`

and `S.Q`

.

The LQ decomposition is the QR decomposition of `transpose(A)`

, and it is useful in order to compute the minimum-norm solution `lq(A) \ b`

to an underdetermined system of equations (`A`

has more columns than rows, but has full row rank).

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [5. 7.; -2. -4.]
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
5.0 7.0

as `P'UDU'P`

or `P'LDL'P`

, depending on whether the upper (the default) or the lower triangle is stored in `A`

. If `A`

is complex symmetric then `U'`

and `L'`

denote the unconjugated transposes, i.e. `transpose(U)`

and `transpose(L)`

, respectively. This is the return type of `bunchkaufman`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

If `S::BunchKaufman`

is the factorization object, the components can be obtained via `S.D`

, `S.U`

or `S.L`

as appropriate given `S.uplo`

, and `S.p`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `S.D`

as `P'*U*D*U'*P`

or `P'*L*D*L'*P`

, depending on which triangle is stored in `A`

, and return a `BunchKaufman`

object. Note that if `A`

— Function`bunchkaufman!(A, rook::Bool=false; check = true) -> BunchKaufman`

`bunchkaufman!`

is the same as `bunchkaufman`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

, instead of creating a copy.

`LinearAlgebra.Eigen`

— Type`Eigen <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the eigenvalue/spectral decomposition of a square matrix `A`

. This is the return type of `eigen`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

If `F::Eigen`

is the factorization object, the eigenvalues can be obtained via `F.values`

and the eigenvectors as the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

and `F.vectors`

.

`LinearAlgebra.GeneralizedEigen`

— Type`GeneralizedEigen <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the generalized eigenvalue/spectral decomposition of `A`

and `B`

. This is the return type of `eigen`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function, when called with two matrix arguments.

If `F::GeneralizedEigen`

is the factorization object, the eigenvalues can be obtained via `F.values`

and the eigenvectors as the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

`LinearAlgebra.eigvals`

— Function`eigvals(A; permute::Bool=true, scale::Bool=true, sortby) -> values`

Return the eigenvalues of `A`

.

For general non-symmetric matrices it is possible to specify how the matrix is balanced before the eigenvalue calculation. The `permute`

, `scale`

, and `sortby`

keywords are the same as for `eigen`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> diag_matrix = [1 0; 0 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
1 0
0 4
julia> eigvals(diag_matrix)
2-element Vector{Float64}:

```

For a scalar input, `eigvals`

will return a scalar.

**Examples**

```
julia> eigvals(-2)
-2
```

`eigvals(A, B) -> values`

Compute the generalized eigenvalues of `A`

and `B`

.

`LinearAlgebra.eigvals!`

— Function`eigvals!(A; permute::Bool=true, scale::Bool=true, sortby) -> values`

Same as `eigvals`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

, instead of creating a copy. The `permute`

, and `sortby`

keywords are the same as for `eigen`

.

The input matrix `A`

will not contain its eigenvalues after `eigvals!`

is called on it - `A`

is used as a workspace.

, instead of creating a copy. `irange`

is a range of eigenvalue *indices* to search for - for instance, the 2nd to 8th eigenvalues.

`eigvals!(A::Union{SymTridiagonal, Hermitian, Symmetric}, vl::Real, vu::Real) -> values`

Same as `eigvals`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

, instead of creating a copy. `vl`

is the lower bound of the interval to search for eigenvalues, and `vu`

is the upper bound.

`LinearAlgebra.eigmax`

— Function`eigmax(A; permute::Bool=true, scale::Bool=true)`

Return the largest eigenvalue of `A`

. The option `permute=true`

permutes the matrix to become closer to upper triangular, and `scale=true`

scales the matrix by its diagonal elements to make rows and columns more equal in norm. Note that if the eigenvalues of `A`

are complex, this method will fail, since complex numbers cannot be sorted.

**Examples**

Return a matrix `M`

whose columns are the eigenvectors of `A`

. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `M[:, k]`

If the optional vector of eigenvalues `eigvals`

is specified, `eigvecs`

returns the specific corresponding eigenvectors.

`LinearAlgebra.eigen`

— Function`eigen(A; permute::Bool=true, scale::Bool=true, sortby) -> Eigen`

Compute the eigenvalue decomposition of `A`

, returning an `Eigen`

factorization object `F`

which contains the eigenvalues in `F.values`

and the eigenvectors in the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. This corresponds to solving an eigenvalue problem of the form `Ax = λx`

, where `A`

is a matrix, `x`

is an eigenvector, and `λ`

is an eigenvalue. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

and `F.vectors`

.

The following functions are available for `Eigen`

objects: `inv`

, `det`

, and `isposdef`

.

For general nonsymmetric matrices it is possible to specify how the matrix is balanced before the eigenvector calculation. The option `permute=true`

permutes the matrix to become closer to upper triangular, and `scale=true`

scales the matrix by its diagonal elements to make rows and columns more equal in norm. The default is `true`

for both options.

By default, the eigenvalues and vectors are sorted lexicographically by `(real(λ),imag(λ))`

. A different comparison function `by(λ)`

can be passed to `sortby`

, or you can pass `sortby=nothing`

to leave the eigenvalues in an arbitrary order. Some special matrix types (e.g. `Diagonal`

or `SymTridiagonal`

) may implement their own sorting convention and not accept a `sortby`

keyword.

**Examples**

```
julia> F = eigen([1.0 0.0 0.0; 0.0 3.0 0.0; 0.0 0.0 18.0])

Compute the generalized eigenvalue decomposition of `A`

and `B`

, returning a `GeneralizedEigen`

factorization object `F`

which contains the generalized eigenvalues in `F.values`

and the generalized eigenvectors in the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. This corresponds to solving a generalized eigenvalue problem of the form `Ax = λBx`

, where `A, B`

are matrices, `x`

is an eigenvector, and `λ`

is an eigenvalue. (The `k`

th generalized eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

and `F.vectors`

.

By default, the eigenvalues and vectors are sorted lexicographically by `(real(λ),imag(λ))`

`eigen(A::Union{SymTridiagonal, Hermitian, Symmetric}, irange::UnitRange) -> Eigen`

Compute the eigenvalue decomposition of `A`

, returning an `Eigen`

factorization object `F`

which contains the eigenvalues in `F.values`

and the eigenvectors in the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

and `F.vectors`

.

The following functions are available for `Eigen`

objects: `inv`

, `det`

, and `isposdef`

.

The `UnitRange`

`irange`

specifies indices of the sorted eigenvalues to search for.

If `irange`

is not `1:n`

, where `n`

is the dimension of `A`

, then the returned factorization will be a *truncated* factorization.

`eigen(A::Union{SymTridiagonal, Hermitian, Symmetric}, vl::Real, vu::Real) -> Eigen`

Compute the eigenvalue decomposition of `A`

, returning an `Eigen`

factorization object `F`

which contains the eigenvalues in `F.values`

and the eigenvectors in the columns of the matrix `F.vectors`

. (The `k`

th eigenvector can be obtained from the slice `F.vectors[:, k]`

.)

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.values`

and `F.vectors`

.

The following functions are available for `Eigen`

objects: `inv`

, `det`

, and `isposdef`

.

`vl`

is the lower bound of the window of eigenvalues to search for, and `vu`

is the upper bound.

If [`vl`

, `vu`

] does not contain all eigenvalues of `A`

, then the returned factorization will be a *truncated* factorization.

`LinearAlgebra.eigen!`

— Function```
eigen!(A; permute, scale, sortby)
eigen!(A, B; sortby)
```

Same as `eigen`

, but saves space by overwriting the input `A`

(and `B`

), instead of creating a copy.

`LinearAlgebra.Hessenberg`

— Type`Hessenberg <: Factorization`

A `Hessenberg`

object represents the Hessenberg factorization `QHQ'`

of a square matrix, or a shift `Q(H+μI)Q'`

thereof, which is produced by the `hessenberg`

function.

`LinearAlgebra.hessenberg`

— Function`hessenberg(A) -> Hessenberg`

Compute the Hessenberg decomposition of `A`

and return a `Hessenberg`

object. If `F`

is the factorization object, the unitary matrix can be accessed with `F.Q`

(of type `LinearAlgebra.HessenbergQ`

) and the Hessenberg matrix with `F.H`

(of type `UpperHessenberg`

), either of which may be converted to a regular matrix with `Matrix(F.H)`

or `Matrix(F.Q)`

.

If `A`

is `Hermitian`

or real-`Symmetric`

, then the Hessenberg decomposition produces a real-symmetric tridiagonal matrix and `F.H`

is of type `SymTridiagonal`

.

Note that the shifted factorization `A+μI = Q (H+μI) Q'`

can be constructed efficiently by `F + μ*I`

using the `UniformScaling`

object `I`

, which creates a new `Hessenberg`

object with shared storage and a modified shift. The shift of a given `F`

is obtained by `F.μ`

. This is useful because multiple shifted solves `(F + μ*I) \ b`

(for different `μ`

and/or `b`

) can be performed efficiently once `F`

is created.

Iterating the decomposition produces the factors `F.Q, F.H, F.μ`

.

`LinearAlgebra.Schur`

— Type`Schur <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the Schur factorization of a matrix `A`

. This is the return type of `schur(_)`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

If `F::Schur`

is the factorization object, the (quasi) triangular Schur factor can be obtained via either `F.Schur`

or `F.T`

and the orthogonal/unitary Schur vectors via `F.vectors`

or `F.Z`

such that `A = F.vectors * F.Schur * F.vectors'`

. The eigenvalues of `A`

can be obtained with `F.values`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.T`

`LinearAlgebra.GeneralizedSchur`

— Type`GeneralizedSchur <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the generalized Schur factorization of two matrices `A`

and `B`

. This is the return type of `schur(_, _)`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

If `F::GeneralizedSchur`

is the factorization object, the (quasi) triangular Schur factors can be obtained via `F.S`

and `B=F.left*F.T*F.right'`

. The generalized eigenvalues of `A`

and `B`

can be obtained with `F.α./F.β`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.S`

, `F.T`

, `F.α`

, and `F.β`

.

`LinearAlgebra.schur`

— Function`schur(A) -> F::Schur`

Computes the Schur factorization of the matrix `A`

. The (quasi) triangular Schur factor can be obtained from the `Schur`

object `F`

with either `F.Schur`

or `F.T`

and the orthogonal/unitary Schur vectors can be obtained with `F.vectors`

or `F.Z`

such that `A = F.vectors * F.Schur * F.vectors'`

. The eigenvalues of `A`

can be obtained with `F.values`

.

For real `A`

, the Schur factorization is "quasitriangular", which means that it is upper-triangular except with 2×2 diagonal blocks for any conjugate pair of complex eigenvalues; this allows the factorization to be purely real even when there are complex eigenvalues. To obtain the (complex) purely upper-triangular Schur factorization from a real quasitriangular factorization, you can use `Schur{Complex}(schur(A))`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `F.T`

, `F.Z`

, and `F.values`

Reorders the Schur factorization `F`

returning the reordered factorization `F`

object. The selected eigenvalues appear in the leading diagonal of `F.Schur`

still holds and the generalized eigenvalues of `A`

`LinearAlgebra.GeneralizedSVD`

— Type`GeneralizedSVD <: Factorization`

Matrix factorization type of the generalized singular value decomposition (SVD) of two matrices `A`

and `B`

, such that `A = F.U*F.D1*F.R0*F.Q'`

and `B = F.V*F.D2*F.R0*F.Q'`

. This is the return type of `svd(_, _)`

, the corresponding matrix factorization function.

For an M-by-N matrix `A`

and P-by-N matrix `B`

,

`U`

is a M-by-M orthogonal matrix,`V`

is a P-by-P orthogonal matrix,`Q`

is a N-by-N orthogonal matrix,`D1`

is a M-by-(K+L) diagonal matrix with 1s in the first K entries,`D2`

is a P-by-(K+L) matrix whose top right L-by-L block is diagonal,`R0`

is a (K+L)-by-N matrix whose rightmost (K+L)-by-(K+L) block is nonsingular upper block triangular,

`K+L`

is the effective numerical rank of the matrix `[A; B]`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `U`

, `V`

, `Q`

, `D1`

, `D2`

, and `R0`

.

The entries of `F.D1`

and `F.D2`

are related, as explained in the LAPACK documentation for the generalized SVD and the xGGSVD3 routine which is called underneath (in LAPACK 3.6.0 and newer).

`LinearAlgebra.svd`

— Function`svd(A; full::Bool = false, alg::Algorithm = default_svd_alg(A)) -> SVD`

Compute the singular value decomposition (SVD) of `A`

and return an `SVD`

object.

`U`

, `S`

, `V`

and `Vt`

can be obtained from the factorization `F`

with `F.U`

, `F.S`

, `F.V`

and `F.Vt`

, such that `A = U * Diagonal(S) * Vt`

. The algorithm produces `Vt`

and hence `Vt`

is more efficient to extract than `V`

. The singular values in `S`

are sorted in descending order.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `U`

, `S`

, and `V`

.

If `full = false`

(default), a "thin" SVD is returned. For an $M \times N$ matrix `A`

, in the full factorization `U`

is $M \times M$ and `V`

is $N \times N$, while in the thin factorization `U`

is $M \times K$ and `V`

is $N \times K$, where $K = \min(M,N)$ is the number of singular values.

If `alg = DivideAndConquer()`

a divide-and-conquer algorithm is used to calculate the SVD. Another (typically slower but more accurate) option is `alg = QRIteration()`

.

The `alg`

keyword argument requires Julia 1.3 or later.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = rand(4,3);
julia> F = svd(A); # Store the Factorization Object
julia> A ≈ F.U * Diagonal(F.S) * F.Vt
true
julia> U, S, V = F; # destructuring via iteration
julia> A ≈ U * Diagonal(S) * V'
true
julia> Uonly, = svd(A); # Store U only
julia> Uonly == U
true
```

`svd(A, B) -> GeneralizedSVD`

Compute the generalized SVD of `A`

and `B`

, returning a `GeneralizedSVD`

factorization object `F`

such that `[A;B] = [F.U * F.D1; F.V * F.D2] * F.R0 * F.Q'`

`U`

is a M-by-M orthogonal matrix,`V`

is a P-by-P orthogonal matrix,`Q`

is a N-by-N orthogonal matrix,`D1`

is a M-by-(K+L) diagonal matrix with 1s in the first K entries,`D2`

is a P-by-(K+L) matrix whose top right L-by-L block is diagonal,`R0`

is a (K+L)-by-N matrix whose rightmost (K+L)-by-(K+L) block is nonsingular upper block triangular,

`K+L`

is the effective numerical rank of the matrix `[A; B]`

.

Iterating the decomposition produces the components `U`

, `V`

, `Q`

, `D1`

, `D2`

, and `R0`

.

The generalized SVD is used in applications such as when one wants to compare how much belongs to `A`

vs. how much belongs to `B`

, as in human vs yeast genome, or signal vs noise, or between clusters vs within clusters. (See Edelman and Wang for discussion: https://arxiv.org/abs/1901.00485)

It decomposes `[A; B]`

into `[UC; VS]H`

, where `[UC; VS]`

is a natural orthogonal basis for the column space of `[A; B]`

, and `H = RQ'`

is a natural non-orthogonal basis for the rowspace of `[A;B]`

, where the top rows are most closely attributed to the `A`

matrix, and the bottom to the `B`

matrix. The multi-cosine/sine matrices `C`

and `S`

provide a multi-measure of how much `A`

vs how much `B`

, and `U`

and `V`

provide directions in which these are measured.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = randn(3,2); B=randn(4,2);
julia> F = svd(A, B);
julia> U,V,Q,C,S,R = F;
julia> H = R*Q';
julia> [A; B] ≈ [U*C; V*S]*H
true
julia> [A; B] ≈ [F.U*F.D1; F.V*F.D2]*F.R0*F.Q'
true
julia> Uonly, = svd(A,B);
julia> U == Uonly
true

— Function`LinearAlgebra.diagm`

— Function```
diagm(kv::Pair{<:Integer,<:AbstractVector}...)
diagm(m::Integer, n::Integer, kv::Pair{<:Integer,<:AbstractVector}...)
```

Construct a matrix from `Pair`

s of diagonals and vectors. Vector `kv.second`

will be placed on the `kv.first`

diagonal. By default the matrix is square and its size is inferred from `kv`

, but a non-square size `m`

×`n`

(padded with zeros as needed) can be specified by passing `m,n`

as the first arguments. For repeated diagonal indices `kv.first`

the values in the corresponding vectors `kv.second`

will be added.

`diagm`

constructs a full matrix; if you want storage-efficient versions with fast arithmetic, see `Diagonal`

, `Bidiagonal`

`Tridiagonal`

and `SymTridiagonal`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> diagm(1 => [1,2,3])
4×4 Matrix{Int64}:
0 1 0 0
0 0 2 0
0 0 0 3
0 0 0 0

0 0 0 6
0 0 0 0
```

```
diagm(v::AbstractVector)
diagm(m::Integer, n::Integer, v::AbstractVector)
```

Construct a matrix with elements of the vector as diagonal elements. By default, the matrix is square and its size is given by `length(v)`

, but a non-square size `m`

×`n`

can be specified by passing `m,n`

as the first arguments.

**Examples**

```
julia> diagm([1,2,3])
3×3 Matrix{Int64}:
1 0 0
0 2 0
0 0 3
```

`LinearAlgebra.rank`

— Function`rank(::QRSparse{Tv,Ti}) -> Ti`

Return the rank of the QR factorization

`rank(S::SparseMatrixCSC{Tv,Ti}; [tol::Real]) -> Ti`

Calculate rank of `S`

by calculating its QR factorization. Values smaller than `tol`

are considered as zero. See SPQR's manual.

```
rank(A::AbstractMatrix; atol::Real=0, rtol::Real=atol>0 ? 0 : n*ϵ)
rank(A::AbstractMatrix, rtol::Real)
```

Compute the numerical rank of a matrix by counting how many outputs of `svdvals(A)`

are greater than `max(atol, rtol*σ₁)`

where `σ₁`

is `A`

's largest calculated singular value. `atol`

and `rtol`

are the absolute and relative tolerances, respectively. The default relative tolerance is `n*ϵ`

, where `n`

is the size of the smallest dimension of `A`

, and `ϵ`

is the `eps`

of the element type of `A`

.

Numerical rank can be a sensitive and imprecise characterization of ill-conditioned matrices with singular values that are close to the threshold tolerance `max(atol, rtol*σ₁)`

. In such cases, slight perturbations to the singular-value computation or to the matrix can change the result of `rank`

by pushing one or more singular values across the threshold. These variations can even occur due to changes in floating-point errors between different Julia versions, architectures, compilers, or operating systems.

The `atol`

and `rtol`

keyword arguments requires at least Julia 1.1. In Julia 1.0 `rtol`

is available as a positional argument, but this will be deprecated in Julia 2.0.

**Examples**

```
julia> rank(Matrix(I, 3, 3))
3
julia> rank(diagm(0 => [1, 0, 2]))
2
julia> rank(diagm(0 => [1, 0.001, 2]), rtol=0.1)
2
julia> rank(diagm(0 => [1, 0.001, 2]), rtol=0.00001)
3
julia> rank(diagm(0 => [1, 0.001, 2]), atol=1.5)
1
```

`LinearAlgebra.norm`

— Function`norm(A, p::Real=2)`

For any iterable container `A`

(including arrays of any dimension) of numbers (or any element type for which `norm`

is defined), compute the `p`

-norm (defaulting to `p=2`

) as if `A`

were a vector of the corresponding length.

The `p`

-norm is defined as

\[\|A\|_p = \left( \sum_{i=1}^n | a_i | ^p \right)^{1/p}\]

with $a_i$ the entries of $A$, $| a_i |$ the `norm`

of $a_i$, and $n$ the length of $A$. Since the `p`

-norm is computed using the `norm`

s of the entries of `A`

, the `p`

-norm of a vector of vectors is not compatible with the interpretation of it as a block vector in general if `p != 2`

.

`p`

can assume any numeric value (even though not all values produce a mathematically valid vector norm). In particular, `norm(A, Inf)`

returns the largest value in `abs.(A)`

, whereas `norm(A, -Inf)`

returns the smallest. If `A`

is a matrix and `p=2`

, then this is equivalent to the Frobenius norm.

The second argument `p`

is not necessarily a part of the interface for `norm`

, i.e. a custom type may only implement `norm(A)`

without second argument.

Use `opnorm`

to compute the operator norm of a matrix.

**Examples**

```
julia> v = [3, -2, 6]
3-element Vector{Int64}:
3
-2
6
julia> norm(v)
7.0
julia> norm(v, 1)

julia> norm([1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9])
16.881943016134134
julia> norm(1:9)
16.881943016134134
julia> norm(hcat(v,v), 1) == norm(vcat(v,v), 1) != norm([v,v], 1)
true
julia> norm(hcat(v,v), 2) == norm(vcat(v,v), 2) == norm([v,v], 2)
true
julia> norm(hcat(v,v), Inf) == norm(vcat(v,v), Inf) != norm([v,v], Inf)

`LinearAlgebra.opnorm`

— Function`opnorm(A::AbstractMatrix, p::Real=2)`

Compute the operator norm (or matrix norm) induced by the vector `p`

-norm, where valid values of `p`

are `1`

, `2`

, or `Inf`

. (Note that for sparse matrices, `p=2`

is currently not implemented.) Use `norm`

to compute the Frobenius norm.

When `p=1`

, the operator norm is the maximum absolute column sum of `A`

:

\[\|A\|_1 = \max_{1 ≤ j ≤ n} \sum_{i=1}^m | a_{ij} |\]

with $a_{ij}$ the entries of $A$, and $m$ and $n$ its dimensions.

When `p=2`

, the operator norm is the spectral norm, equal to the largest singular value of `A`

.

When `p=Inf`

, the operator norm is the maximum absolute row sum of `A`

:

\[\|A\|_\infty = \max_{1 ≤ i ≤ m} \sum _{j=1}^n | a_{ij} |\]

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 -2 -3; 2 3 -1]
2×3 Matrix{Int64}:
1 -2 -3
2 3 -1
julia> opnorm(A, Inf)
6.0
julia> opnorm(A, 1)
5.0
```

`opnorm(x::Number, p::Real=2)`

For numbers, return $\left( |x|^p \right)^{1/p}$. This is equivalent to `norm`

.

```
opnorm(A::Adjoint{<:Any,<:AbstractVector}, q::Real=2)
opnorm(A::Transpose{<:Any,<:AbstractVector}, q::Real=2)
```

For Adjoint/Transpose-wrapped vectors, return the operator $q$-norm of `A`

, which is equivalent to the `p`

-norm with value `p = q/(q-1)`

. They coincide at `p = q = 2`

. Use `norm`

to compute the `p`

norm of `A`

as a vector.

The difference in norm between a vector space and its dual arises to preserve the relationship between duality and the dot product, and the result is consistent with the operator `p`

-norm of a `1 × n`

matrix.

**Examples**

```
julia> v = [1; im];
julia> vc = v';
julia> opnorm(vc, 1)
1.0
julia> norm(vc, 1)

`LinearAlgebra.pinv`

— Function```
pinv(M; atol::Real=0, rtol::Real=atol>0 ? 0 : n*ϵ)
pinv(M, rtol::Real) = pinv(M; rtol=rtol) # to be deprecated in Julia 2.0
```

Computes the Moore-Penrose pseudoinverse.

For matrices `M`

with floating point elements, it is convenient to compute the pseudoinverse by inverting only singular values greater than `max(atol, rtol*σ₁)`

where `σ₁`

is the largest singular value of `M`

.

The optimal choice of absolute (`atol`

) and relative tolerance (`rtol`

) varies both with the value of `M`

and the intended application of the pseudoinverse. The default relative tolerance is `n*ϵ`

, where `n`

is the size of the smallest dimension of `M`

, and `ϵ`

is the `eps`

of the element type of `M`

.

For inverting dense ill-conditioned matrices in a least-squares sense, `rtol = sqrt(eps(real(float(oneunit(eltype(M))))))`

is recommended.

For more information, see ^{[issue8859]}, ^{[B96]}, ^{[S84]}, ^{[KY88]}.

**Examples**

```
julia> M = [1.5 1.3; 1.2 1.9]

nullspace(M, rtol::Real) = nullspace(M; rtol=rtol) # to be deprecated in Julia 2.0
```

Computes a basis for the nullspace of `M`

by including the singular vectors of `M`

whose singular values have magnitudes smaller than `max(atol, rtol*σ₁)`

, where `σ₁`

is `M`

's largest singular value.

By default, the relative tolerance `rtol`

is `n*ϵ`

, where `n`

is the size of the smallest dimension of `M`

, and `ϵ`

is the `eps`

of the element type of `M`

.

`Base.kron`

— Function`kron(A, B)`

Computes the Kronecker product of two vectors, matrices or numbers.

For real vectors `v`

and `w`

, the Kronecker product is related to the outer product by `kron(v,w) == vec(w * transpose(v))`

or `w * transpose(v) == reshape(kron(v,w), (length(w), length(v)))`

. Note how the ordering of `v`

and `w`

differs on the left and right of these expressions (due to column-major storage). For complex vectors, the outer product `w * v'`

also differs by conjugation of `v`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 2; 3 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:

and stores the result in `C`

, overwriting the existing content of `C`

. This is the in-place version of `kron`

.

This function requires Julia 1.6 or later.

`Base.exp`

— Method`exp(A::AbstractMatrix)`

Compute the matrix exponential of `A`

, defined by

\[e^A = \sum_{n=0}^{\infty} \frac{A^n}{n!}.\]

For symmetric or Hermitian `A`

, an eigendecomposition (`eigen`

) is used, otherwise the scaling and squaring algorithm (see ^{[H05]}) is chosen.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = Matrix(1.0I, 2, 2)
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
1.0 0.0

```

`Base.:^`

numbers (like `ℯ`

) to a matrix was added in Julia 1.1.

2.0 6.0
0.0 8.0
julia> ℯ^[1 2; 0 3]

0.0 20.0855
```

`Base.log`

— Method`log(A::AbstractMatrix)`

If `A`

has no negative real eigenvalue, compute the principal matrix logarithm of `A`

, i.e. the unique matrix $X$ such that $e^X = A$ and $-\pi < Im(\lambda) < \pi$ for all the eigenvalues $\lambda$ of $X$. If `A`

has nonpositive eigenvalues, a nonprincipal matrix function is returned whenever possible.

If `A`

is symmetric or Hermitian, its eigendecomposition (`eigen`

) is used, if `A`

is triangular an improved version of the inverse scaling and squaring method is employed (see ^{[AH12]} and ^{[AHR13]}). If `A`

is real with no negative eigenvalues, then the real Schur form is computed. Otherwise, the complex Schur form is computed. Then the upper (quasi-)triangular algorithm in ^{[AHR13]} is used on the upper (quasi-)triangular factor.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = Matrix(2.7182818*I, 2, 2)
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
2.71828 0.0
0.0 2.71828

`Base.sqrt`

— Method`sqrt(x)`

Return $\sqrt{x}$.

Throws `DomainError`

for negative `Real`

arguments. Use complex negative arguments instead. Note that `sqrt`

has a branch cut along the negative real axis.

The prefix operator `√`

is equivalent to `sqrt`

.

See also: `hypot`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> sqrt(big(81))

julia> sqrt(big(-81))
ERROR: DomainError with -81.0:

`sqrt(A::AbstractMatrix)`

If `A`

has no negative real eigenvalues, compute the principal matrix square root of `A`

, that is the unique matrix $X$ with eigenvalues having positive real part such that $X^2 = A$. Otherwise, a nonprincipal square root is returned.

If `A`

is real-symmetric or Hermitian, its eigendecomposition (`eigen`

) is used to compute the square root. For such matrices, eigenvalues λ that appear to be slightly negative due to roundoff errors are treated as if they were zero. More precisely, matrices with all eigenvalues `≥ -rtol*(max |λ|)`

are treated as semidefinite (yielding a Hermitian square root), with negative eigenvalues taken to be zero. `rtol`

is a keyword argument to `sqrt`

(in the Hermitian/real-symmetric case only) that defaults to machine precision scaled by `size(A,1)`

.

Otherwise, the square root is determined by means of the Björck-Hammarling method ^{[BH83]}, which computes the complex Schur form (`schur`

) and then the complex square root of the triangular factor. If a real square root exists, then an extension of this method ^{[H87]} that computes the real Schur form and then the real square root of the quasi-triangular factor is instead used.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [4 0; 0 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
4 0
0 4
julia> sqrt(A)
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:

`Base.Math.cbrt`

— Method`cbrt(A::AbstractMatrix{<:Real})`

Computes the real-valued cube root of a real-valued matrix `A`

. If `T = cbrt(A)`

, then we have `T*T*T ≈ A`

, see example given below.

If `A`

is symmetric, i.e., of type `HermOrSym{<:Real}`

, then (`eigen`

) is used to find the cube root. Otherwise, a specialized version of the p-th root algorithm ^{[S03]} is utilized, which exploits the real-valued Schur decomposition (`schur`

) to compute the cube root.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [0.927524 -0.15857; -1.3677 -1.01172]

```

`LinearAlgebra.isdiag`

— Function`isdiag(A) -> Bool`

Test whether a matrix is diagonal in the sense that `iszero(A[i,j])`

is true unless `i == j`

. Note that it is not necessary for `A`

to be square; if you would also like to check that, you need to check that `size(A, 1) == size(A, 2)`

`Base.transpose`

— Function`transpose(A)`

Lazy transpose. Mutating the returned object should appropriately mutate `A`

. Often, but not always, yields `Transpose(A)`

, where `Transpose`

is a lazy transpose wrapper. Note that this operation is recursive.

This operation is intended for linear algebra usage - for general data manipulation see `permutedims`

, which is non-recursive.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [3 2; 0 0]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
3 2
0 0
julia> B = transpose(A)
2×2 transpose(::Matrix{Int64}) with eltype Int64:

true
julia> Transpose(B) # however, the constructor always wraps its argument
2×2 transpose(transpose(::Matrix{Int64})) with eltype Int64:
3 2
0 0
julia> B[1,2] = 4; # modifying B will modify A automatically
julia> A
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
3 2
4 0
```

For complex matrices, the `adjoint`

operation is equivalent to a conjugate-transpose.

```
julia> A = reshape([Complex(x, x) for x in 1:4], 2, 2)
2×2 Matrix{Complex{Int64}}:
1+1im 3+3im
2+2im 4+4im
julia> adjoint(A) == conj(transpose(A))
true
```

The `transpose`

of an `AbstractVector`

is a row-vector:

```
julia> v = [1,2,3]
3-element Vector{Int64}:
1
2
3
julia> transpose(v) # returns a row-vector
1×3 transpose(::Vector{Int64}) with eltype Int64:
1 2 3
julia> transpose(v) * v # compute the dot product
14
```

For a matrix of matrices, the individual blocks are recursively operated on:

```
julia> C = [1 3; 2 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
1 3
2 4
julia> D = reshape([C, 2C, 3C, 4C], 2, 2) # construct a block matrix
2×2 Matrix{Matrix{Int64}}:
[1 3; 2 4] [3 9; 6 12]
[2 6; 4 8] [4 12; 8 16]
julia> transpose(D) # blocks are recursively transposed
2×2 transpose(::Matrix{Matrix{Int64}}) with eltype Transpose{Int64, Matrix{Int64}}:
[1 2; 3 4] [2 4; 6 8]
[3 6; 9 12] [4 8; 12 16]
```

, in which case returns an `AdjointFactorization`

.

`LinearAlgebra.transpose!`

— Function`transpose!(X::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC{Tv,Ti}, A::AbstractSparseMatrixCSC{Tv,Ti}) where {Tv,Ti}`

Transpose the matrix `A`

and stores it in the matrix `X`

. `size(X)`

must be equal to `size(transpose(A))`

. No additional memory is allocated other than resizing the rowval and nzval of `X`

, if needed.

See `halfperm!`

`transpose!(dest,src)`

Transpose array `src`

and store the result in the preallocated array `dest`

, which should have a size corresponding to `(size(src,2),size(src,1))`

. No in-place transposition is supported and unexpected results will happen if `src`

and `dest`

have overlapping memory regions.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [3+2im 9+2im; 8+7im 4+6im]
2×2 Matrix{Complex{Int64}}:
3+2im 9+2im
8+7im 4+6im

`LinearAlgebra.peakflops`

— Function`LinearAlgebra.peakflops(n::Integer=4096; eltype::DataType=Float64, ntrials::Integer=3, parallel::Bool=false)`

`peakflops`

computes the peak flop rate of the computer by using double precision `gemm!`

. By default, if no arguments are specified, it multiplies two `Float64`

matrices of size `n x n`

, where `n = 4096`

. If the underlying BLAS is using multiple threads, higher flop rates are realized. The number of BLAS threads can be set with `BLAS.set_num_threads(n)`

.

If the keyword argument `eltype`

is provided, `peakflops`

will construct matrices with elements of type `eltype`

for calculating the peak flop rate.

By default, `peakflops`

will use the best timing from 3 trials. If the `ntrials`

keyword argument is provided, `peakflops`

will use those many trials for picking the best timing.

If the keyword argument `parallel`

is set to `true`

, `peakflops`

is run in parallel on all the worker processors. The flop rate of the entire parallel computer is returned. When running in parallel, only 1 BLAS thread is used. The argument `n`

still refers to the size of the problem that is solved on each processor.

matrix. For real matrices `A`

, this is also known as the symmetric part of `A`

; it is also sometimes called the "operator real part". The optional argument `uplo`

controls the corresponding argument of the `Hermitian`

view. For real matrices, the latter is equivalent to a `Symmetric`

view.

See also `hermitianpart!`

for the corresponding in-place operation.

This function requires Julia 1.10 or later.

`LinearAlgebra.hermitianpart!`

— Function`hermitianpart!(A, uplo=:U) -> Hermitian`

Overwrite the square matrix `A`

in-place with its Hermitian part `(A + A') / 2`

, and return `Hermitian(A, uplo)`

to `B`

with adjunction as follows:

`B[ir_dest, jr_dest] = adjoint(A)[jr_src, ir_src]`

The elements `B[ir_dest, jr_dest]`

are overwritten. Furthermore, the index range parameters must satisfy `length(ir_dest) == length(jr_src)`

and `length(jr_dest) == length(ir_src)`

.

`LinearAlgebra.copy_transpose!`

— Function```

to `B`

with transposition as follows:

`B[ir_dest, jr_dest] = transpose(A)[jr_src, ir_src]`

The elements `B[ir_dest, jr_dest]`

are overwritten. Furthermore, the index range parameters must satisfy `length(ir_dest) == length(jr_src)`

and `length(jr_dest) == length(ir_src)`

.

```
copy_transpose!(B::AbstractMatrix, ir_dest::AbstractUnitRange, jr_dest::AbstractUnitRange,

to `B`

conditioned on the character parameter `tM`

as follows:

`tM` | Destination | Source |
---|---|---|

`'N'` | `B[ir_dest, jr_dest]` | `transpose(M)[jr_src, ir_src]` |

`'T'` | `B[ir_dest, jr_dest]` | `M[jr_src, ir_src]` |

`'C'` | `B[ir_dest, jr_dest]` | `conj(M)[jr_src, ir_src]` |

are overwritten. Furthermore, the index range parameters must satisfy `length(ir_dest) == length(jr_src)`

and `length(jr_dest) == length(ir_src)`

.

## Low-level matrix operations

In many cases there are in-place versions of matrix operations that allow you to supply a pre-allocated output vector or matrix. This is useful when optimizing critical code in order to avoid the overhead of repeated allocations. These in-place operations are suffixed with `!`

below (e.g. `mul!`

) according to the usual Julia convention.

`LinearAlgebra.mul!`

— Function`mul!(Y, A, B) -> Y`

Calculates the matrix-matrix or matrix-vector product $A B$ and stores the result in `Y`

, overwriting the existing value of `Y`

. Note that `Y`

must not be aliased with either `A`

or `B`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1.0 2.0; 3.0 4.0]; B = [1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0]; Y = similar(B);
julia> mul!(Y, A, B) === Y
true
julia> Y
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
3.0 3.0
7.0 7.0
julia> Y == A * B
true
```

**Implementation**

For custom matrix and vector types, it is recommended to implement 5-argument `mul!`

rather than implementing 3-argument `mul!`

directly if possible.

`mul!(C, A, B, α, β) -> C`

Combined inplace matrix-matrix or matrix-vector multiply-add $A B α + C β$. The result is stored in `C`

by overwriting it. Note that `C`

must not be aliased with either `A`

or `B`

.

Five-argument `mul!`

requires at least Julia 1.3.

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1.0 2.0; 3.0 4.0]; B = [1.0 1.0; 1.0 1.0]; C = [1.0 2.0; 3.0 4.0];
julia> α, β = 100.0, 10.0;
julia> mul!(C, A, B, α, β) === C
true
julia> C
2×2 Matrix{Float64}:
310.0 320.0
730.0 740.0
julia> C_original = [1.0 2.0; 3.0 4.0]; # A copy of the original value of C
julia> C == A * B * α + C_original * β
true

`LinearAlgebra.lmul!`

— Function`lmul!(a::Number, B::AbstractArray)`

Scale an array `B`

by a scalar `a`

overwriting `B`

in-place. Use `rmul!`

to multiply scalar from right. The scaling operation respects the semantics of the multiplication `*`

between `a`

and an element of `B`

. In particular, this also applies to multiplication involving non-finite numbers such as `NaN`

and `±Inf`

.

Prior to Julia 1.1, `NaN`

and `±Inf`

entries in `B`

were treated inconsistently.

**Examples**

```
julia> B = [1 2; 3 4]
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
1 2
3 4
julia> lmul!(2, B)
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:
2 4
6 8
julia> lmul!(0.0, [Inf])
1-element Vector{Float64}:
NaN
```

`lmul!(A, B)`

Calculate the matrix-matrix product $AB$, overwriting `B`

, and return the result. Here, `A`

must be of special matrix type, like, e.g., `Diagonal`

, `UpperTriangular`

or `LowerTriangular`

, or of some orthogonal type, see `QR`

.

**Examples**

```
julia> B = [0 1; 1 0];
julia> A = UpperTriangular([1 2; 0 3]);
julia> lmul!(A, B);
julia> B
2×2 Matrix{Int64}:

```

`LinearAlgebra.rmul!`

— Function`rmul!(A::AbstractArray, b::Number)`

Scale an array `A`

by a scalar `b`

overwriting `A`

in-place. Use `lmul!`

between an element of `A`

and `b`

. In particular, this also applies to multiplication involving non-finite numbers such as `NaN`

and `±Inf`

`LinearAlgebra.ldiv!`

— Function`ldiv!(Y, A, B) -> Y`

Compute `A \ B`

in-place and store the result in `Y`

, returning the result.

The argument `A`

should *not* be a matrix. Rather, instead of matrices it should be a factorization object (e.g. produced by `factorize`

or `cholesky`

). The reason for this is that factorization itself is both expensive and typically allocates memory (although it can also be done in-place via, e.g., `lu!`

), and performance-critical situations requiring `ldiv!`

usually also require fine-grained control over the factorization of `A`

.

Certain structured matrix types, such as `Diagonal`

and `UpperTriangular`

, are permitted, as these are already in a factorized form

**Examples**

```
julia> A = [1 2.2 4; 3.1 0.2 3; 4 1 2];
julia> X = [1; 2.5; 3];
julia> Y = zero(X);

## BLAS functions

In Julia (as in much of scientific computation), dense linear-algebra operations are based on the LAPACK library, which in turn is built on top of basic linear-algebra building-blocks known as the BLAS. There are highly optimized implementations of BLAS available for every computer architecture, and sometimes in high-performance linear algebra routines it is useful to call the BLAS functions directly.

`LinearAlgebra.BLAS`

provides wrappers for some of the BLAS functions. Those BLAS functions that overwrite one of the input arrays have names ending in `'!'`

. Usually, a BLAS function has four methods defined, for `Float32`

, `Float64`

, `ComplexF32`

, and `ComplexF64`

arrays.

### BLAS character arguments

Many BLAS functions accept arguments that determine whether to transpose an argument (`trans`

), which triangle of a matrix to reference (`uplo`

or `ul`

), whether the diagonal of a triangular matrix can be assumed to be all ones (`dA`

) or which side of a matrix multiplication the input argument belongs on (`side`

). The possibilities are:

#### Multiplication order

`side` | Meaning |
---|---|

`'L'` | The argument goes on the left side of a matrix-matrix operation. |

`'R'` | The argument goes on the right side of a matrix-matrix operation. |

#### Triangle referencing

`uplo` /`ul` | Meaning |
---|---|

`'U'` | Only the upper triangle of the matrix will be used. |

`'L'` | Only the lower triangle of the matrix will be used. |

#### Transposition operation

`trans` /`tX` | Meaning |
---|---|

`'N'` | The input matrix `X` is not transposed or conjugated. |

`'T'` | The input matrix `X` will be transposed. |

`'C'` | The input matrix `X` will be conjugated and transposed. |

#### Unit diagonal

`diag` /`dX` | Meaning |
---|---|

`'N'` | The diagonal values of the matrix `X` will be read. |

`'U'` | The diagonal of the matrix `X` is assumed to be all ones. |

`LinearAlgebra.BLAS`

— ModuleInterface to BLAS subroutines.

`LinearAlgebra.BLAS.set_num_threads`

— Function```
set_num_threads(n::Integer)
set_num_threads(::Nothing)
```

Set the number of threads the BLAS library should use equal to `n::Integer`

.

is discouraged and mainly exists for historical reasons.

`LinearAlgebra.BLAS.get_num_threads`

— Function`get_num_threads()`

Get the number of threads the BLAS library is using.

BLAS functions can be divided into three groups, also called three levels, depending on when they were first proposed, the type of input parameters, and the complexity of the operation.

### Level 1 BLAS functions

The level 1 BLAS functions were first proposed in [(Lawson, 1979)][Lawson-1979] and define operations between scalars and vectors.

`LinearAlgebra.LAPACK`

provides wrappers for some of the LAPACK functions for linear algebra. Those functions that overwrite one of the input arrays have names ending in `'!'`

.

Usually a function has 4 methods defined, one each for `Float64`

, `Float32`

, `ComplexF64`

and `ComplexF32`

arrays.

Note that the LAPACK API provided by Julia can and will change in the future. Since this API is not user-facing, there is no commitment to support/deprecate this specific set of functions in future releases.
