From base v3.3
by Rcore Rcore@Rproject.org
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 $X$.
Usage
chol2inv(x, size = NCOL(x), LINPACK = FALSE)
Arguments
 x
 a matrix. The first
size
columns of the upper triangle contain the Choleski decomposition of the matrix to be inverted.  size
 the number of columns of
x
containing the Choleski decomposition.  LINPACK
 logical. Defunct and ignored (with a warning for true value).
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.
