The generalized Lilbert matrix

  • Emrah KılıçEmail author
  • Helmut Prodinger


We introduce a generalized Lilbert [Lucas-Hilbert] matrix. Explicit formulæ are derived for the LU-decomposition and their inverses, as well as the Cholesky decomposition. The approach is to use q-analysis and to leave the justification of the necessary identities to the q-version of Zeilberger’s celebrated algorithm.
