# solve¶

paddle.linalg. solve ( x, y, name=None ) [source]

Computes the solution of a square system of linear equations with a unique solution for input ‘X’ and ‘Y’. Let \(X\) be a sqaure matrix or a batch of square matrices, \(Y\) be a vector/matrix or a batch of vectors/matrices, the equation should be:

\[Out = X^-1 * Y\]

Specifically, this system of linear equations has one solution if and only if input ‘X’ is invertible.

Parameters
• x (Tensor) – A square matrix or a batch of square matrices. Its shape should be `[*, M, M]`, where `*` is zero or more batch dimensions. Its data type should be float32 or float64.

• y (Tensor) – A vector/matrix or a batch of vectors/matrices. Its shape should be `[*, M, K]`, where `*` is zero or more batch dimensions. Its data type should be float32 or float64.

• name (str, optional) – Name for the operation (optional, default is None). For more information, please refer to Name.

Returns

The solution of a square system of linear equations with a unique solution for input ‘x’ and ‘y’. Its data type should be the same as that of x.

Return type

Tensor

Examples

```# a square system of linear equations:
# 2*X0 + X1 = 9
# X0 + 2*X1 = 8
