Use something like...

 Module[{U, L},
  U = compute U;
  L = compute L;
  {U, L}]

Don't use MatrixForm in the Module if you want to use U and L. Return U and
L as a list of the two matrices. You do not have to use the Return
statement. Just make {U, L} the last statement in the Module.

You could use this as...

{umat, lmat} = genUL[...]


MatrixForm /@ genUL[...]

I do not understand how to return a result from a module so that I can use
the result globally. I am trying to generate 2 matrices from the module.
For example,

When I type ludecomp[n,A], it returns a result, however, when I try to
input just the variable U, it
doesn't return a value. I'd greatly appreciate any help that you can

Thank you,
