CHESVX computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for HE matrices
Purpose:
CHESVX uses the diagonal pivoting factorization to compute the
solution to a complex system of linear equations A * X = B,
where A is an NbyN Hermitian matrix and X and B are NbyNRHS
matrices.
Error bounds on the solution and a condition estimate are also
provided.
Description:
The following steps are performed:
1. If FACT = 'N', the diagonal pivoting method is used to factor A.
The form of the factorization is
A = U * D * U**H, if UPLO = 'U', or
A = L * D * L**H, if UPLO = 'L',
where U (or L) is a product of permutation and unit upper (lower)
triangular matrices, and D is Hermitian and block diagonal with
1by1 and 2by2 diagonal blocks.
2. If some D(i,i)=0, so that D is exactly singular, then the routine
returns with INFO = i. Otherwise, the factored form of A is used
to estimate the condition number of the matrix A. If the
reciprocal of the condition number is less than machine precision,
INFO = N+1 is returned as a warning, but the routine still goes on
to solve for X and compute error bounds as described below.
3. The system of equations is solved for X using the factored form
of A.
4. Iterative refinement is applied to improve the computed solution
matrix and calculate error bounds and backward error estimates
for it.
Parameters:
FACT
FACT is CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether or not the factored form of A has been
supplied on entry.
= 'F': On entry, AF and IPIV contain the factored form
of A. A, AF and IPIV will not be modified.
= 'N': The matrix A will be copied to AF and factored.
UPLO
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.
N
N is INTEGER
The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the
matrix A. N >= 0.
NRHS
NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0.
A
A is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
The Hermitian matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading NbyN
upper triangular part of A contains the upper triangular part
of the matrix A, and the strictly lower triangular part of A
is not referenced. If UPLO = 'L', the leading NbyN lower
triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of
the matrix A, and the strictly upper triangular part of A is
not referenced.
LDA
LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
AF
AF is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDAF,N)
If FACT = 'F', then AF is an input argument and on entry
contains the block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used
to obtain the factor U or L from the factorization
A = U*D*U**H or A = L*D*L**H as computed by CHETRF.
If FACT = 'N', then AF is an output argument and on exit
returns the block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used
to obtain the factor U or L from the factorization
A = U*D*U**H or A = L*D*L**H.
LDAF
LDAF is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AF. LDAF >= max(1,N).
IPIV
IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
If FACT = 'F', then IPIV is an input argument and on entry
contains details of the interchanges and the block structure
of D, as determined by CHETRF.
If IPIV(k) > 0, then rows and columns k and IPIV(k) were
interchanged and D(k,k) is a 1by1 diagonal block.
If UPLO = 'U' and IPIV(k) = IPIV(k1) < 0, then rows and
columns k1 and IPIV(k) were interchanged and D(k1:k,k1:k)
is a 2by2 diagonal block. If UPLO = 'L' and IPIV(k) =
IPIV(k+1) < 0, then rows and columns k+1 and IPIV(k) were
interchanged and D(k:k+1,k:k+1) is a 2by2 diagonal block.
If FACT = 'N', then IPIV is an output argument and on exit
contains details of the interchanges and the block structure
of D, as determined by CHETRF.
B
B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The NbyNRHS right hand side matrix B.
LDB
LDB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
X
X is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
If INFO = 0 or INFO = N+1, the NbyNRHS solution matrix X.
LDX
LDX is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N).
RCOND
RCOND is REAL
The estimate of the reciprocal condition number of the matrix
A. If RCOND is less than the machine precision (in
particular, if RCOND = 0), the matrix is singular to working
precision. This condition is indicated by a return code of
INFO > 0.
FERR
FERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector
X(j) (the jth column of the solution matrix X).
If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j)
is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest
element in (X(j)  XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the
largest element in X(j). The estimate is as reliable as
the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight
overestimate of the true error.
BERR
BERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The componentwise relative backward error of each solution
vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in
any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution).
WORK
WORK is COMPLEX array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
LWORK
LWORK is INTEGER
The length of WORK. LWORK >= max(1,2*N), and for best
performance, when FACT = 'N', LWORK >= max(1,2*N,N*NB), where
NB is the optimal blocksize for CHETRF.
If LWORK = 1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine
only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns
this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error
message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.
RWORK
RWORK is REAL array, dimension (N)
INFO
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, and i is
<= N: D(i,i) is exactly zero. The factorization
has been completed but the factor D is exactly
singular, so the solution and error bounds could
not be computed. RCOND = 0 is returned.
= N+1: D is nonsingular, but RCOND is less than machine
precision, meaning that the matrix is singular
to working precision. Nevertheless, the
solution and error bounds are computed because
there are a number of situations where the
computed solution can be more accurate than the
value of RCOND would suggest.
