LU decomposition (factorization) of a nonsingular (square) matrix A means expressing the matrix as the multiplication of a lower triangular matrix L and an upper triangular matrix U, where a lower/upper triangular matrix is a matrix having no nonzero elements above/below the diagonal. For the case where some row switching operation is needed like in the Gauss elimination, we include a permutation matrix P representing the necessary row switching operation(s) to write the LU decomposition as
