NAME
ZPTTRF - compute the factorization of a complex Hermitian
positive definite tridiagonal matrix A

SYNOPSIS
SUBROUTINE ZPTTRF( N, D, E, INFO )

INTEGER        INFO, N

DOUBLE         PRECISION D( * )

COMPLEX*16     E( * )

PURPOSE
ZPTTRF computes the factorization of a complex Hermitian
positive definite tridiagonal matrix A.

If the subdiagonal elements of A are supplied in the array
E, the factorization has the form A = L*D*L**H, where D is
diagonal and L is unit lower bidiagonal; if the superdiago-
nal elements of A are supplied, it has the form A =
U**H*D*U, where U is unit upper bidiagonal.

ARGUMENTS
N       (input) INTEGER
The order of the matrix A.  N >= 0.

D       (input/output) DOUBLE PRECISION array, dimension (N)
On entry, the n diagonal elements of the tridiagonal
matrix A.  On exit, the n diagonal elements of the
diagonal matrix D from the L*D*L**H factorization of
A.

E       (input/output) COMPLEX*16 array, dimension (N-1)
On entry, the (n-1) off-diagonal elements of the
tridiagonal matrix A.  On exit, the (n-1) off-
diagonal elements of the unit bidiagonal factor L or
U from the factorization of A.

INFO    (output) INTEGER
= 0:  successful exit
< 0:  if INFO = -i, the i-th argument had an illegal
value
> 0:  if INFO = i, the leading minor of order i is
not positive definite; if i < N, the factorization
could not be completed, while if i = N, the factori-
zation was completed, but D(N) = 0.
