Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine dsgesv (integerN, integerNRHS, double precision, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integer, dimension( * )IPIV, double precision, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, double precision, dimension( ldx, * )X, integerLDX, double precision, dimension( n, * )WORK, real, dimension( * )SWORK, integerITER, integerINFO)
DSGESV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for GE matrices (mixed precision with iterative refinement)
Purpose:

DSGESV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations A * X = B, where A is an NbyN matrix and X and B are NbyNRHS matrices. DSGESV first attempts to factorize the matrix in SINGLE PRECISION and use this factorization within an iterative refinement procedure to produce a solution with DOUBLE PRECISION normwise backward error quality (see below). If the approach fails the method switches to a DOUBLE PRECISION factorization and solve. The iterative refinement is not going to be a winning strategy if the ratio SINGLE PRECISION performance over DOUBLE PRECISION performance is too small. A reasonable strategy should take the number of righthand sides and the size of the matrix into account. This might be done with a call to ILAENV in the future. Up to now, we always try iterative refinement. The iterative refinement process is stopped if ITER > ITERMAX or for all the RHS we have: RNRM < SQRT(N)*XNRM*ANRM*EPS*BWDMAX where o ITER is the number of the current iteration in the iterative refinement process o RNRM is the infinitynorm of the residual o XNRM is the infinitynorm of the solution o ANRM is the infinityoperatornorm of the matrix A o EPS is the machine epsilon returned by DLAMCH('Epsilon') The value ITERMAX and BWDMAX are fixed to 30 and 1.0D+00 respectively.
Parameters:

N
N is INTEGER The number of linear equations, i.e., the order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
NRHSNRHS is INTEGER The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns of the matrix B. NRHS >= 0.
AA is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the NbyN coefficient matrix A. On exit, if iterative refinement has been successfully used (INFO.EQ.0 and ITER.GE.0, see description below), then A is unchanged, if double precision factorization has been used (INFO.EQ.0 and ITER.LT.0, see description below), then the array A contains the factors L and U from the factorization A = P*L*U; the unit diagonal elements of L are not stored.
LDALDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
IPIVIPIV 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). Corresponds either to the single precision factorization (if INFO.EQ.0 and ITER.GE.0) or the double precision factorization (if INFO.EQ.0 and ITER.LT.0).
BB is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDB,NRHS) The NbyNRHS right hand side matrix B.
LDBLDB is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
XX is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDX,NRHS) If INFO = 0, the NbyNRHS solution matrix X.
LDXLDX is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N).
WORKWORK is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N,NRHS) This array is used to hold the residual vectors.
SWORKSWORK is REAL array, dimension (N*(N+NRHS)) This array is used to use the single precision matrix and the righthand sides or solutions in single precision.
ITERITER is INTEGER < 0: iterative refinement has failed, double precision factorization has been performed 1 : the routine fell back to full precision for implementation or machinespecific reasons 2 : narrowing the precision induced an overflow, the routine fell back to full precision 3 : failure of SGETRF 31: stop the iterative refinement after the 30th iterations > 0: iterative refinement has been sucessfully used. Returns the number of iterations
INFOINFO is INTEGER = 0: successful exit < 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value > 0: if INFO = i, U(i,i) computed in DOUBLE PRECISION is exactly zero. The factorization has been completed, but the factor U is exactly singular, so the solution could not be computed.
