NAME
DPBTRF  compute the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric positive definite band
matrix A
SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE DPBTRF( UPLO, N, KD, AB, LDAB, INFO )
CHARACTER UPLO
INTEGER INFO, KD, LDAB, N
DOUBLE PRECISION AB( LDAB, * )
PURPOSE
DPBTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric positive definite band
matrix A. 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.
ARGUMENTS
UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
= 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored;
= 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
KD (input) INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals of the matrix A if UPLO = 'U', or the number of sub
diagonals if UPLO = 'L'. KD >= 0.
AB (input/output) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAB,N)
On entry, the upper or lower triangle of the symmetric band matrix A, stored in
the first KD+1 rows of the array. The jth column of A is stored in the jth col
umn of the array AB as follows: if UPLO = 'U', AB(kd+1+ij,j) = A(i,j) for
max(1,jkd)<=i<=j; if UPLO = 'L', AB(1+ij,j) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=min(n,j+kd).
On exit, if INFO = 0, the triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T of the band matrix A, in the same storage format as A.
LDAB (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB. LDAB >= KD+1.
INFO (output) 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 band storage scheme is illustrated by the following example, when N = 6, KD = 2, and
UPLO = 'U':
On entry: On exit:
* * a13 a24 a35 a46 * * u13 u24 u35 u46
* a12 a23 a34 a45 a56 * u12 u23 u34 u45 u56
a11 a22 a33 a44 a55 a66 u11 u22 u33 u44 u55 u66
Similarly, if UPLO = 'L' the format of A is as follows:
On entry: On exit:
a11 a22 a33 a44 a55 a66 l11 l22 l33 l44 l55 l66
a21 a32 a43 a54 a65 * l21 l32 l43 l54 l65 *
a31 a42 a53 a64 * * l31 l42 l53 l64 * *
Array elements marked * are not used by the routine.
