Hi Diane

Here are the MAPLE procedures that solve this assignment.

In the first file Gauss_Elim-final we solve the Gaussian elimination problem of the Hilbert matrices.

The main procedure there is the algorithm you supplied, so I didn't comment in the procedure itself.

The file LU-final solves the Doolittle LU decomposition problem.

Since the Doolittle algorithm results in an upper ...

Solution Summary

This shows how to work with Hilbert matrices to solve a system of equations using Gaussian elimination and to find the Doolittle LU decomposition with scaled partial pivoting.
