# Cholesky

Cholesky factorization cholesky factorization factors an , symmetric, positive-definite matrix into the product of a lower triangular matrix and its transpose, ie. Section we will prove, with the help of the lu decomposition we can have the cholesky decomposition from the gauss elimination method at the last section. Sample run: a is a randomly generated positive definite matrix to generate a random positive definite matrix check the link in “external link” section below. You can use the cholesky matrix to create correlations among random variables for example, suppose that x and y are independent standard normal variables.
