Solves systems of linear eqns A X = RHS, given LU factorizations.

    lower_upper, perm, rhs, validate_args=False, name=None


  • lower_upper: lu as returned by, i.e., if matmul(P, matmul(L, U)) = X then lower_upper = L + U - eye.
  • perm: p as returned by, i.e., if matmul(P, matmul(L, U)) = X then perm = argmax(P).
  • rhs: Matrix-shaped float Tensor representing targets for which to solve; A X = RHS. To handle vector cases, use: lu_solve(..., rhs[..., tf.newaxis])[..., 0].
  • validate_args: Python bool indicating whether arguments should be checked for correctness. Note: this function does not verify the implied matrix is actually invertible, even when validate_args=True. Default value: False (i.e., don't validate arguments).
  • name: Python str name given to ops managed by this object. Default value: None (i.e., 'lu_solve').


  • x: The X in A @ X = RHS.
