## NAME

CGEQRF - computes a QR factorization of a complex M-by-N matrix A

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE CGEQRF(
M, N, A, LDA, TAU, WORK, LWORK, INFO )

INTEGER INFO, LDA, LWORK, M, N

COMPLEX A( LDA, * ), TAU( * ), WORK( * )

## PURPOSE

CGEQRF computes a QR factorization of a complex M-by-N matrix A: A = Q * R.

## 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 A. On exit, the elements on and above the diagonal of the array contain the min(M,N)-by-N upper trapezoidal matrix R (R is upper triangular if m >= n); the elements below the diagonal, with the array TAU, represent the unitary matrix Q as a product of min(m,n) elementary reflectors (see Further Details).
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,M).
TAU (output) COMPLEX array, dimension (min(M,N))
The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further Details).
WORK (workspace/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (MAX(1,LWORK))
On exit, if INFO = 0, WORK(1) returns the optimal LWORK.
LWORK (input) INTEGER
The dimension of the array WORK. LWORK >= max(1,N). For optimum performance LWORK >= N*NB, where NB is the optimal blocksize. If LWORK = -1, then a workspace query is assumed; the routine only calculates the optimal size of the WORK array, returns this value as the first entry of the WORK array, and no error message related to LWORK is issued by XERBLA.
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal value

## FURTHER DETAILS

The matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary reflectors
H(1) H(2) . . . H(k), where k min(m,n).
Each H(i) has the form

H(i) I - tau vaq
where tau is a complex scalar, and v is a complex vector with v(1:i-1) = 0 and v(i) = 1; v(i+1:m) is stored on exit in A(i+1:m,i), and tau in TAU(i).
