PURPOSE
CHERFS improves the computed solution to a system of linear equations when the coefficient matrix is Hermitian indefinite, and provides error bounds and backward error estimates for the solution.ARGUMENTS
 UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1

= aqUaq: Upper triangle of A is stored;
= aqLaq: Lower triangle of A is stored.  N (input) INTEGER
 The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
 NRHS (input) INTEGER
 The number of right hand sides, i.e., the number of columns of the matrices B and X. NRHS >= 0.
 A (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
 The Hermitian matrix A. If UPLO = aqUaq, 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 = aqLaq, 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.
 LDA (input) INTEGER
 The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
 AF (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDAF,N)
 The factored form of the matrix A. AF contains the block diagonal matrix D and the multipliers used to obtain the factor U or L from the factorization A = U*D*U**H or A = L*D*L**H as computed by CHETRF.
 LDAF (input) INTEGER
 The leading dimension of the array AF. LDAF >= max(1,N).
 IPIV (input) INTEGER array, dimension (N)
 Details of the interchanges and the block structure of D as determined by CHETRF.
 B (input) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDB,NRHS)
 The right hand side matrix B.
 LDB (input) INTEGER
 The leading dimension of the array B. LDB >= max(1,N).
 X (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDX,NRHS)
 On entry, the solution matrix X, as computed by CHETRS. On exit, the improved solution matrix X.
 LDX (input) INTEGER
 The leading dimension of the array X. LDX >= max(1,N).
 FERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
 The estimated forward error bound for each solution vector X(j) (the jth column of the solution matrix X). If XTRUE is the true solution corresponding to X(j), FERR(j) is an estimated upper bound for the magnitude of the largest element in (X(j)  XTRUE) divided by the magnitude of the largest element in X(j). The estimate is as reliable as the estimate for RCOND, and is almost always a slight overestimate of the true error.
 BERR (output) REAL array, dimension (NRHS)
 The componentwise relative backward error of each solution vector X(j) (i.e., the smallest relative change in any element of A or B that makes X(j) an exact solution).
 WORK (workspace) COMPLEX array, dimension (2*N)
 RWORK (workspace) REAL array, dimension (N)
 INFO (output) INTEGER

= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value
PARAMETERS
ITMAX is the maximum number of steps of iterative refinement.
