Cholesky decomposition

Cholesky decomposition is a special case of LU decomposition which can only be done if A is a symmetric positive definite matrix with real entries.

You can decompose A into:

A = L LT

where L is a lower triangular matrix with positive diagonal entries, and LT denotes the transpose of L.
