sgeqrf: computes a QR factorization of a real MbyN matrix A
NAME
SGEQRF  computes a QR factorization of a real MbyN matrix ASYNOPSIS
 SUBROUTINE SGEQRF(
 M, N, A, LDA, TAU, WORK, LWORK, INFO )
 INTEGER INFO, LDA, LWORK, M, N
 REAL A( LDA, * ), TAU( * ), WORK( * )
PURPOSE
SGEQRF computes a QR factorization of a real MbyN 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) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N)
 On entry, the MbyN matrix A. On exit, the elements on and above the diagonal of the array contain the min(M,N)byN upper trapezoidal matrix R (R is upper triangular if m >= n); the elements below the diagonal, with the array TAU, represent the orthogonal 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) REAL array, dimension (min(M,N))
 The scalar factors of the elementary reflectors (see Further Details).
 WORK (workspace/output) REAL 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 ith argument had an illegal value
FURTHER DETAILS
The matrix Q is represented as a product of elementary reflectorsQ
Each H(i) has the form
H(i)
where tau is a real scalar, and v is a real vector with
v(1:i1) = 0 and v(i) = 1; v(i+1:m) is stored on exit in A(i+1:m,i), and tau in TAU(i).
