Let $A$ be a real square symmetric positive definite matrix with the Cholesky decomposition $A=U^TU$, where $U$ is upper triangular with positive diagonal.

What's the Cholesky decomposition of $A + \epsilon I$, where $\epsilon$ is a small positive quantity? I am only interested in an approximation to first-order in $\epsilon$.
