spstrf.f(3) LAPACK spstrf.f(3)spstrf.fNAME-Functions/Subroutines subroutine spstrf (UPLO, N, A, LDA, PIV, RANK, TOL, WORK, INFO) SPSTRFSYNOPSISFunction/Subroutine Documentation subroutine spstrf (characterUPLO, integerN, real, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( n )PIV, integerRANK, realTOL, real, dimension( 2*n )WORK, integerINFO) SPSTRF Purpose: SPSTRF computes the Cholesky factorization with complete pivoting of a real symmetric positive semidefinite matrix A. The factorization has the form P**T * A * P = U**T * U , if UPLO = 'U', P**T * A * P = L * L**T, if UPLO = 'L', where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular, and P is stored as vector PIV. This algorithm does not attempt to check that A is positive semidefinite. This version of the algorithm calls level 3 BLAS. Parameters: UPLO UPLO is CHARACTER*1 Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the symmetric matrix A is stored. = 'U': Upper triangular = 'L': Lower triangular N N is INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. A A is REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading n by n 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 n by n 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. On exit, if INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization as above. LDA LDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N). PIV PIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N) PIV is such that the nonzero entries are P( PIV(K), K ) = 1. RANK RANK is INTEGER The rank of A given by the number of steps the algorithm completed. TOL TOL is REAL User defined tolerance. If TOL < 0, then N*U*MAX( A(K,K) ) will be used. The algorithm terminates at the (K-1)st step if the pivot <= TOL. WORK WORK is REAL array, dimension (2*N) Work space. INFO INFO is INTEGER < 0: If INFO =, the K-th argument had an illegal value, = 0: algorithm completed successfully, and > 0: the matrix A is either rank deficient with computed rank as returned in RANK, or is indefinite.
