Function/Subroutine Documentation
subroutine dsposv (characterUPLO, integerN, integerNRHS, double precision, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, double precision, dimension( ldb, * )B, integerLDB, double precision, dimension( ldx, * )X, integerLDX, double precision, dimension( n, * )WORK, real, dimension( * )SWORK, integerITER, integerINFO)
DSPOSV computes the solution to system of linear equations A * X = B for PO matrices
Purpose:

DSPOSV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations A * X = B, where A is an NbyN symmetric positive definite matrix and X and B are NbyNRHS matrices. DSPOSV 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:

UPLO
UPLO is CHARACTER*1 = 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored; = 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored.
NN 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 symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading NbyN 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 NbyN 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 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 factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T.
LDALDA is INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
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 SPOTRF 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, the leading minor of order i of (DOUBLE PRECISION) A is not positive definite, so the factorization could not be completed, and the solution has not been computed.
