NAME
STFTRI  computes the inverse of a triangular matrix A stored in RFP formatSYNOPSIS
 SUBROUTINE STFTRI(
 TRANSR, UPLO, DIAG, N, A, INFO )
 CHARACTER TRANSR, UPLO, DIAG
 INTEGER INFO, N
 REAL A( 0: * )
PURPOSE
STFTRI computes the inverse of a triangular matrix A stored in RFP format. This is a Level 3 BLAS version of the algorithm.ARGUMENTS
 TRANSR (input) CHARACTER

= aqNaq: The Normal TRANSR of RFP A is stored;
= aqTaq: The Transpose TRANSR of RFP A is stored.  UPLO (input) CHARACTER

= aqUaq: A is upper triangular;
= aqLaq: A is lower triangular.  DIAG (input) CHARACTER

= aqNaq: A is nonunit triangular;
= aqUaq: A is unit triangular.  N (input) INTEGER
 The order of the matrix A. N >= 0.
 A (input/output) REAL array, dimension (NT);

NT=N*(N+1)/2. On entry, the triangular factor of a Hermitian
Positive Definite matrix A in RFP format. RFP format is
described by TRANSR, UPLO, and N as follows: If TRANSR = aqNaq
then RFP A is (0:N,0:k1) when N is even; k=N/2. RFP A is
(0:N1,0:k) when N is odd; k=N/2. IF TRANSR = aqTaq then RFP is the transpose of RFP A as defined when TRANSR = aqNaq. The contents of RFP A are defined by UPLO as follows: If UPLO = aqUaq the RFP A contains the nt elements of upper packed A; If UPLO = aqLaq the RFP A contains the nt elements of lower packed A. The LDA of RFP A is (N+1)/2 when TRANSR = aqTaq. When TRANSR is aqNaq the LDA is N+1 when N is even and N is odd. See the Note below for more details. On exit, the (triangular) inverse of the original matrix, in the same storage format.  INFO (output) INTEGER

= 0: successful exit
< 0: if INFO = i, the ith argument had an illegal value
> 0: if INFO = i, A(i,i) is exactly zero. The triangular matrix is singular and its inverse can not be computed.
FURTHER DETAILS
We first consider Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Format when N is even. We give an example where N = 6.Let TRANSR = aqNaq. RFP holds AP as follows:
For UPLO = aqUaq the upper trapezoid A(0:5,0:2) consists of the last three columns of AP upper. The lower triangle A(4:6,0:2) consists of the transpose of the first three columns of AP upper.
For UPLO = aqLaq the lower trapezoid A(1:6,0:2) consists of the first three columns of AP lower. The upper triangle A(0:2,0:2) consists of the transpose of the last three columns of AP lower.
This covers the case N even and TRANSR = aqNaq.

Now let TRANSR = aqTaq. RFP A in both UPLO cases is just the transpose of RFP A above. One therefore gets:

We first consider Rectangular Full Packed (RFP) Format when N is odd. We give an example where N = 5.
