Dear all,
I am trying to solve a huge linear system Ax = b using LU decomposition with five output arguments:
[L, U, p, q, D] = lu(A, 'vector');
My matrix A is sparse with nnz(A) =1e+9 and size(A) = (1e+7, 1e+7)
However, I cannot find any official help to use these 5 arguments to solve the system.
Does anyone have any idea how to ultilize these arguments?
Best,
Doan

As Matt says, the simplest is likely to just use decomposition object.
In terms of how to solve a linear system, the doc page gives the formula
[L,U,P,Q,D] = lu(S) satisfies P*(D\S)*Q = L*U
from this we can get a formula for the matrix S by just reformulating:
S = D*P'*L*U*Q'
So you can write the initial formula to solve
S*x = b
and insert that formula
(D*P'*L*U*Q') * x = b
now applying each factor's inverse from the left results in
x = Q*(U\(L\(P*(D\x))));
To use the 'vector' syntax instead, each of P*... and Q*... will become an indexing operation instead.

When the "vector" option is used, the solving process should be
c = D\b;
x(q) = U\(L\c(p));

Thanks. Except that x is a row vector instead of a column vector, this seems to work.

dA=decomposition(A,'ldl');
x=dA\b;

[L,U,P,Q,D] = lu(S) also returns a diagonal scaling matrix D such that P*(D\S)*Q = L*U. Typically, the row-scaling leads to a sparser and more stable factorization.
outputFormShape of permutation outputs
'matrix' (default) | 'vector'
Shape of permutation outputs, specified as 'matrix' or 'vector'. This flag controls whether lu returns the row permutations P and column permutations Q as permutation matrices or permutation vectors.
As matrices, the outputs P and Q satisfy these identities:
• Three outputs — P satisfies P*A = L*U.
• Four outputs — P and Q satisfy P*S*Q = L*U.
• Five outputs — P, Q, and D satisfy P*(D\S)*Q = L*U.
As vectors, the outputs P and Q satisfy these identities:
• Three outputs — P satisfies A(P,:) = L*U
• Four outputs — P and Q satisfy S(P,Q) = L*U
• Five outputs — P, Q, and D satisfy D(:,P)\S(:,Q) = L*U.
Example: [L,U,P] = lu(A,'vector')

Thanks, but my matrix is not Hermitian so that LDL doesn't apply.
Well, you can just do,
dA=decomposition(A)
and let it choose what is best for thte matrix
I have no idea on which option that decomposition uses: 'vector' format or the default format 'matrix'.
I don't think you need to know. You can just check how much memory the dA object consumes.
