## ⓘ Crout matrix decomposition

In linear algebra, the Crout matrix decomposition is an LU decomposition which decomposes a matrix into a lower triangular matrix, an upper triangular matrix and, although not always needed, a permutation matrix. It was developed by Prescott Durand Crout.

The Crout matrix decomposition algorithm differs slightly from the Doolittle method. Doolittles method returns a unit lower triangular matrix and an upper triangular matrix, while the Crout method returns a lower triangular matrix and a unit upper triangular matrix.

So, if a matrix decomposition of a matrix A is such that:

A = LDUbeing L a unit lower triangular matrix, D a diagonal matrix and U a unit upper triangular matrix, then Doolittles method produces

A = LDUand Crouts method produces

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically. **It does not matter how much pieces you have, the main thing is how they are placement!**
