Inverse from Choleski (or QR) Decomposition
Invert a symmetric, positive definite square matrix from its Choleski decomposition. Equivalently, compute $(X'X)^(-1)$ from the ($R$ part) of the QR decomposition of $X$.
chol2inv(x, size = NCOL(x), LINPACK = FALSE)
- a matrix. The first
sizecolumns of the upper triangle contain the Choleski decomposition of the matrix to be inverted.
- the number of columns of
xcontaining the Choleski decomposition.
- logical. Defunct and ignored (with a warning for true value).
The inverse of the matrix whose Choleski decomposition was given.Unsuccessful results from the underlying LAPACK code will result in an
error giving a positive error code: these can only be interpreted by
detailed study of the FORTRAN code.
This is an interface to the LAPACK routine
