DPOTRF

Function/Subroutine Documentation

subroutine dpotrf (characterUPLO, integerN, double precision, dimension( lda, * )A, integerLDA, integerINFO)

DPOTRF

Purpose:

``` DPOTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real symmetric
positive definite 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.

This is the block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS.
```

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.
```

A

```          A is DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the symmetric matrix A.  If UPLO = 'U', the leading
N-by-N 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 N-by-N 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 INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky
factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T.
```

LDA

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

INFO

```          INFO is INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th 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.
