# cgetrf (l) - Linux Manuals

## NAME

CGETRF - computes an LU factorization of a general M-by-N matrix A using partial pivoting with row interchanges

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE CGETRF(
M, N, A, LDA, IPIV, INFO )

INTEGER INFO, LDA, M, N

INTEGER IPIV( * )

COMPLEX A( LDA, * )

## PURPOSE

CGETRF computes an LU factorization of a general M-by-N matrix A using partial pivoting with row interchanges. The factorization has the form

U
where P is a permutation matrix, L is lower triangular with unit diagonal elements (lower trapezoidal if m > n), and U is upper triangular (upper trapezoidal if m < n).
This is the right-looking Level 3 BLAS version of the algorithm.

## ARGUMENTS

M (input) INTEGER
The number of rows of the matrix A. M >= 0.
N (input) INTEGER
The number of columns of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the M-by-N matrix to be factored. On exit, the factors L and U from the factorization A = P*L*U; the unit diagonal elements of L are not stored.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).
IPIV (output) INTEGER array, dimension (min(M,N))
The pivot indices; for 1 <= i <= min(M,N), row i of the matrix was interchanged with row IPIV(i).
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, U(i,i) is exactly zero. The factorization has been completed, but the factor U is exactly singular, and division by zero will occur if it is used to solve a system of equations.
