The proposed fast algorithm is based on the computation of the adjoint matrix and the symmetry of the input matrix. The algorithm is implemented in a general purpose graphical processing unit (GPGPU) and compared to the usual approach based on Cholesky factorization. The assessment with simulated observations and data from an actual PolSAR sensor show a speedup factor of about two when compared to the usual Cholesky factorization. Moreover, the expressions provided here can be implemented in any platform.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50285||ISSN:||0098-3004||DOI:||10.1016/j.cageo.2018.07.002||Source:||Computers & Geosciences [ISSN 0098-3004] , v. 119, p. 109-114|
