    Returns the Schur decomposition of a square matrix.


    d = schur(a)
    d = schur(a, option)
    [c, d] = schur(a)
    [c, d] = schur(a, option)



    Real or complex square matrix.


    Type of decomposition to generate. option is a string that accepts the following values.

    Name Description

    Generates a complex decomposition of a.


    Generates a real decomposition of a. MathScript places the real eigenvalues and complex conjugate eigenpairs on the 1-by-1 and 2-by-2 diagonal blocks of d.



    Block upper triangular matrix in real Schur form whose elements on the main diagonal are all 1-by-1 or 2-by-2 blocks. If a is complex, d returns an upper triangular matrix in complex Schur form.


    Orthogonal matrix of the same size as a. If a is complex, c returns a unitary matrix.

    Definition of schur

    The Schur decomposition of a square matrix A is defined by A = CDCH, where D is a matrix in Schur form, and C H is the conjugate transpose of matrix C.

    A = [1, 2, 3; 4, 5, 6; 7, 8, 9];
    [C, D] = schur(A)
