NAME
dpptrf.f 
SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
subroutine dpptrf (UPLO, N, AP, INFO)
DPPTRF
Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine dpptrf (characterUPLO, integerN, double precision, dimension( * )AP, integerINFO)
DPPTRF
Purpose:
DPPTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric
positive definite matrix A stored in packed format.
The factorization has the form
A = U**T * U, if UPLO = 'U', or
A = L * L**T, if UPLO = 'L',
where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular.
Parameters:
UPLO
UPLO is CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.
N
N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
AP
AP is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric matrix
A, packed columnwise in a linear array. The jth column of A
is stored in the array AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j1)*(2nj)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
See below for further details.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the triangular factor U or L from the
Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T, in the same
storage format as A.
INFO
INFO is INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, the leading minor of order i is not
positive definite, and the factorization could not be
completed.

Further Details:
The packed storage scheme is illustrated by the following example
when N = 4, UPLO = 'U':
Twodimensional storage of the symmetric matrix A:
a11 a12 a13 a14
a22 a23 a24
a33 a34 (aij = aji)
a44
Packed storage of the upper triangle of A:
AP = [ a11, a12, a22, a13, a23, a33, a14, a24, a34, a44 ]
