Then we will generate code to execute the alpha program, and test the generated code for correctness. |

The equation for LU Decomposition, derived from first principles using simple algebra in {{:foundations.pdf|Foundations}} (pg.3), is as follows: | The equation for LU Decomposition, derived from first principles using simple algebra in {{:foundations.pdf|Foundations}} (pg.3), is as follows: | ||

**Caveat:** Remember the phrase, "It's not a bug, it's a feature"? Well, in a tutorial, a feature is called a "learning opportunity." | **Caveat:** Remember the phrase, "It's not a bug, it's a feature"? Well, in a tutorial, a feature is called a "learning opportunity." | ||

Parameters are runtime constants represented with some symbol in the code. In this example, parameter N will be used to define the size of the matrices, which is not known until runtime. | Parameters are runtime constants represented with some symbol in the code.

- | In most cases, a computation uses some inputs and produces outputs. Such variables must be declared with a name, a data type, and a shape/size. In Alphabets, the shape/size is represented with polyhedral domains. | + | In most cases, a computation uses some inputs and produces outputs.

For this example, the ''A'' matrix is given, and we are computing two triangular matrices ''L'' and ''U''. ''A'' is an NxN square matrix. The declaration for ''A'' looks as follows: | For this example, the ''A'' matrix is given, and we are computing two triangular matrices ''L'' and ''U''. ''A'' is an NxN square matrix.

float A {i,j|1<=(i,j)<=N}; //starting from 1 to be consistent with the equation in the notes | float A {i,j|1<=(i,j)<=N}; //starting from 1 to be consistent with the equation in the notes | ||

Similarly, ''L'' is a lower triangular matrix of size N (with unit diagonals, implicit) and ''U'' is an upper triangular matrix of size N. The declarations should look like the following: | Similarly, ''L'' is a lower triangular matrix of size N (with unit diagonals, implicit) and ''U'' is an upper triangular matrix of size N.

Combine all of the above, and you will get the Alphabets program for LU decomposition. Don't forget the keyword ''let''/''through'' before equations the period at the end (since our example has no local variables). Notice how we can mix and match Show and AShow syntax within the program, but each equation must obviously, be consistent. | Combine all of the above, and you will get the Alphabets program for LU decomposition.

You will see that when you execute the code, **//it will produce an error//**. You may be able to easily fix the error in your Alpha program and regenerate correctly executing C code, or you may want a bit of help. In either case, we would like to know. Please email <Sanjay.Rajopadhye@colostate.edu> with the error message that is produced. | You will see that when you execute the code, **//it will produce an error//**.
