NAME
sgesv.f -

SYNOPSIS
Functions/Subroutines
subroutine sgesv (N, NRHS, A, LDA, IPIV, B, LDB, INFO)
SGESV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for GE matrices (simple driver)

Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine sgesv (integerN, integerNRHS, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, real, dimension( ldb, * )B,
integerLDB, integerINFO)
SGESV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for GE matrices (simple driver)

Purpose:

SGESV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations
A * X = B,
where A is an N-by-N matrix and X and B are N-by-NRHS matrices.

The LU decomposition with partial pivoting and row interchanges is
used to factor A as
A = P * L * U,
where P is a permutation matrix, L is unit lower triangular, and U is
upper triangular.  The factored form of A is then used to solve the
system of equations A * X = B.

Parameters:
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 matrix B.  NRHS >= 0.

A

A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the N-by-N coefficient matrix A.
On exit, the factors L and U from the factorization
A = P*L*U; the unit diagonal elements of L are not stored.

LDA

LDA is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A.  LDA >= max(1,N).

IPIV

IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
The pivot indices that define the permutation matrix P;
row i of the matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).

B

B is REAL array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
On entry, the N-by-NRHS matrix of right hand side matrix B.
On exit, if INFO = 0, the N-by-NRHS solution matrix X.

LDB

LDB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array B.  LDB >= max(1,N).

INFO

INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0:  if INFO = i, U(i,i) is exactly zero.  The factorization
has been completed, but the factor U is exactly
singular, so the solution could not be computed.
