chol2inv {base} | R Documentation |
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.

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.
This is an interface to the LAPACK routine DPOTRI
