CPPRFS

Purpose:

``` CPPRFS improves the computed solution to a system of linear
equations when the coefficient matrix is Hermitian positive definite
and packed, and provides error bounds and backward error estimates
for the solution.
```

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.
```

NRHS

```          NRHS is INTEGER
The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns
of the matrices B and X.  NRHS >= 0.
```

AP

```          AP is COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The upper or lower triangle of the Hermitian matrix A, packed
columnwise in a linear array.  The j-th column of A is stored
in the array AP as follows:
if UPLO = 'U', AP(i + (j-1)*j/2) = A(i,j) for 1<=i<=j;
if UPLO = 'L', AP(i + (j-1)*(2n-j)/2) = A(i,j) for j<=i<=n.
```

AFP

```          AFP is COMPLEX array, dimension (N*(N+1)/2)
The triangular factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization
A = U**H*U or A = L*L**H, as computed by SPPTRF/CPPTRF,
packed columnwise in a linear array in the same format as A
(see AP).
```

B

```          B is COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
The 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)
On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by CPPTRS.
On exit, the improved solution matrix X.
```

LDX

```          LDX is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array X.  LDX >= max(1,N).
```

FERR

```          FERR is REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector
X(j) (the j-th 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 (2*N)
```

RWORK

```          RWORK is REAL array, dimension (N)
```

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
```

Internal Parameters:

```  ITMAX is the maximum number of steps of iterative refinement.
```
