To obtain a solution of the linear system of equations
$$ A\underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}\to {x} = \underset{\raise0.3em\hbox{$\smash{\scriptscriptstyle-}$}}\to {b} , $$
where A is an n Xn complex matrix, it is often convenient to consider the splitting of A,
$$ A = D - L - U, $$
where D, L, and U are n X n matrices with D nonsingular.
