The q -Pilbert matrix
A generalized Filbert matrix is introduced, sharing properties of the Hilbert matrix and Fibonacci numbers. Explicit formulae 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. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
