[t, h] = hessenberg(a)

Legacy Name: hess


Converts a matrix to Hessenberg form and returns the unitary transformation matrix. The Hessenberg form of a matrix has elements equal to 0 below the first subdiagonal.




Name Description
a Specifies a square matrix.


Name Description
h Returns a in Hessenberg form. h is a matrix of the same size as a. If a is a symmetric or Hermitian matrix, h is tridiagonal.
t Returns the unitary transformation matrix. t is a matrix of the same size as a.


The Hessenberg matrix h satisfies the following unitary similarity transformation: a = t*h*t' with t*t' = t'*t = eye(size(a)).

The following table lists the support characteristics of this function.

Supported in the LabVIEW Run-Time Engine Yes
Supported on RT targets Yes
Suitable for bounded execution times on RT Not characterized


A = [2, -4, 7; -1, 9, 0; -4, -7, 3]
[H, T] = hessenberg(A)
C = T*H*T'
D = T*T'
