 It isn't in numpy, it is in scipy.linalg.

 In [1]: import scipy.linalg as la

 In [2]: help(la.lu_factor)

 In [3]: print la.lu_factor.__doc__
 Compute pivoted LU decomposition of a matrix.

     The decomposition is::

         A = P L U

     where P is a permutation matrix, L lower triangular with unit
     diagonal elements, and U upper triangular.

     a : array, shape (M, M)
         Matrix to decompose
     overwrite_a : boolean
         Whether to overwrite data in A (may increase performance)

     lu : array, shape (N, N)
         Matrix containing U in its upper triangle, and L in its lower
         The unit diagonal elements of L are not stored.
     piv : array, shape (N,)
         Pivot indices representing the permutation matrix P:
         row i of matrix was interchanged with row piv[i].

     This is a wrapper to the *GETRF routines from LAPACK.
