## Interface FieldDecompositionSolver<T>

• Type Parameters:
T - Type of the field elements.

public interface FieldDecompositionSolver<T>
Interface handling decomposition algorithms that can solve A X = B.

Decomposition algorithms decompose an A matrix has a product of several specific matrices from which they can solve the above system of equations in a least-squares sense: Find X such that ||A X - B|| is minimal.

Some solvers like FieldLUDecomposition can only find the solution for square matrices and when the solution is an exact linear solution, i.e. when ||A X - B|| is exactly 0. Other solvers can also find solutions with non-square matrix A and with non-zero minimal norm. If an exact linear solution exists it is also the minimal norm solution.
