mx.symbol.linalg_trsm

Description

Solves matrix equation involving a lower triangular matrix. Input are tensors A, B, each of dimension n >= 2 and having the same shape on the leading n-2 dimensions.

If n=2, A must be lower triangular. The operator performs the BLAS3 function trsm, solving for out in:

op(A) * out = alpha * B

if rightside=False, or

out * op(A) = alpha * B

if rightside=True. Here, alpha is a scalar parameter, and op() is either the identity or the matrix transposition (depending on transpose).

If n>2, trsm is performed separately on the trailing two dimensions for all inputs (batch mode).

Note

The operator supports float32 and float64 data types only.

Example:

// Single matrix solve
A = [[1.0, 0], [1.0, 1.0]]
B = [[2.0, 2.0, 2.0], [4.0, 4.0, 4.0]]
trsm(A, B, alpha=0.5) = [[1.0, 1.0, 1.0], [1.0, 1.0, 1.0]]

// Batch matrix solve
A = [[[1.0, 0], [1.0, 1.0]], [[1.0, 0], [1.0, 1.0]]]
B = [[[2.0, 2.0, 2.0], [4.0, 4.0, 4.0]],
[[4.0, 4.0, 4.0], [8.0, 8.0, 8.0]]]
trsm(A, B, alpha=0.5) = [[[1.0, 1.0, 1.0], [1.0, 1.0, 1.0]],
[[2.0, 2.0, 2.0], [2.0, 2.0, 2.0]]]
