Cholesky decomposition assumes that the matrix being decomposed is Hermitian and positive-definite. Since we are only interested in real-valued matrices, we can replace the property of Hermitian with that of symmetric (i.e. the matrix equals its own

If A is a positive definite symmetric matrix, then there is an upper triangular matrix U with the property that A = U’ * U The matrix U is known as the Cholesky factor of A, and can be used to easily solve linear systems involving A or compute theA.

The ﬁrst is a general assumption that R is a possible correlation matrix, i.e. that it is a symmetric positive semideﬁnite matrix with 1’s on the main diagonal. While implementing the algorithm there is no need to check positive semi-deﬁniteness directly, as we do a Cholesky decomposition of the matrix

I have to find a way to calculate the inverse of matrix A using Cholesky decomposition. I understand that using Cholesky we can re-write A^(-1) as A^(-1)=L^(-T) L^(-1) =U^(-1)U^(-T) and the problem is reduced to finding the inverse of the triangular matrix.

decomposition creates reusable matrix decompositions (LU, LDL, Cholesky, QR, and more) that enable you to solve linear systems (Ax = b or xA = b) more efficiently.For example, after computing dA = decomposition(A) the call dA\b returns the same vector as A\b, but is typically much faster.
