## NAME

CPOTF2 - computes the Cholesky factorization of a complex Hermitian positive definite matrix A

## SYNOPSIS

SUBROUTINE CPOTF2(
UPLO, N, A, LDA, INFO )

CHARACTER UPLO

INTEGER INFO, LDA, N

COMPLEX A( LDA, * )

## PURPOSE

CPOTF2 computes the Cholesky factorization of a complex Hermitian positive definite matrix A. The factorization has the form

Uaq U ,  if UPLO aqUaq, or

Laq,  if UPLO aqLaq,
where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower triangular. This is the unblocked version of the algorithm, calling Level 2 BLAS.

## ARGUMENTS

UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1
Specifies whether the upper or lower triangular part of the Hermitian matrix A is stored. = aqUaq: Upper triangular
= aqLaq: Lower triangular
N (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
A (input/output) COMPLEX array, dimension (LDA,N)
On entry, the Hermitian matrix A. If UPLO = aqUaq, 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 = aqLaq, 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 = Uaq*U or A = L*Laq.
LDA (input) INTEGER
The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N).
INFO (output) INTEGER
= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = -k, the k-th argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = k, the leading minor of order k is not positive definite, and the factorization could not be completed.
