Thus before inverting a matrix, it’s highly advisable to check! It turns out that the procedure for inverting a triangular matrix will be at the heart of the LU factorization approach, which in turn is at the heart of state-of-the-art LP solver codes. These recursive procedures are Forward Substitution (FS) for inverting a lower triangular matrix, and Backward Substitution (BS) for inverting an upper triangular matrix. 1.1 Forward Substitution for lower triangular matrices Consider a lower triangular matrix A = a 11 0 0 . . . 0

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
