DGBRFS

Purpose:

``` DGBRFS improves the computed solution to a system of linear
equations when the coefficient matrix is banded, and provides
error bounds and backward error estimates for the solution.
```

Parameters:

TRANS

```          TRANS is CHARACTER*1
Specifies the form of the system of equations:
= 'N':  A * X = B     (No transpose)
= 'T':  A**T * X = B  (Transpose)
= 'C':  A**H * X = B  (Conjugate transpose = Transpose)
```

N

```          N is INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.
```

KL

```          KL is INTEGER
The number of subdiagonals within the band of A.  KL >= 0.
```

KU

```          KU is INTEGER
The number of superdiagonals within the band of A.  KU >= 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.
```

AB

```          AB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAB,N)
The original band matrix A, stored in rows 1 to KL+KU+1.
The j-th column of A is stored in the j-th column of the
array AB as follows:
AB(ku+1+i-j,j) = A(i,j) for max(1,j-ku)<=i<=min(n,j+kl).
```

LDAB

```          LDAB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AB.  LDAB >= KL+KU+1.
```

AFB

```          AFB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDAFB,N)
Details of the LU factorization of the band matrix A, as
computed by DGBTRF.  U is stored as an upper triangular band
matrix with KL+KU superdiagonals in rows 1 to KL+KU+1, and
the multipliers used during the factorization are stored in
rows KL+KU+2 to 2*KL+KU+1.
```

LDAFB

```          LDAFB is INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array AFB.  LDAFB >= 2*KL*KU+1.
```

IPIV

```          IPIV is INTEGER array, dimension (N)
The pivot indices from DGBTRF; for 1<=i<=N, row i of the
matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).
```

B

```          B is DOUBLE PRECISION 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 DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by DGBTRS.
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 DOUBLE PRECISION 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 DOUBLE PRECISION 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 DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (3*N)
```

IWORK

```          IWORK is INTEGER 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.
```
