# Gaussian variable elimination as Gaussian elimination

## Summary

The computations involved in Gaussian variable elimination are the same as those used to compute the Cholesky decomposition of the covariance matrix.

## Context

This concept has the prerequisites:

- Gaussian variable elimination
- Gaussian elimination
- Cholesky decomposition (The particular version of Gaussian elimination is the one used to compute the Cholesky decomposition.)
