NAME SPOTRF - compute the Cholesky factorization of a real sym- metric positive definite matrix A SYNOPSIS SUBROUTINE SPOTRF( UPLO, N, A, LDA, INFO ) CHARACTER UPLO INTEGER INFO, LDA, N REAL A( LDA, * ) PURPOSE SPOTRF computes the Cholesky factorization of a real sym- metric positive definite matrix A. The factorization has the form A = U**T * U, if UPLO = 'U', or A = L * L**T, if UPLO = 'L', where U is an upper triangular matrix and L is lower tri- angular. This is the block version of the algorithm, calling Level 3 BLAS. ARGUMENTS UPLO (input) CHARACTER*1 = 'U': Upper triangle of A is stored; = 'L': Lower triangle of A is stored. N (input) INTEGER The order of the matrix A. N >= 0. A (input/output) REAL array, dimension (LDA,N) On entry, the symmetric matrix A. If UPLO = 'U', the leading N-by-N upper triangular part of A con- tains the upper triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly lower triangular part of A is not referenced. If UPLO = 'L', the leading N-by-N lower triangular part of A contains the lower triangular part of the matrix A, and the strictly upper tri- angular part of A is not referenced. On exit, if INFO = 0, the factor U or L from the Cholesky factorization A = U**T*U or A = L*L**T. LDA (input) INTEGER The leading dimension of the array A. LDA >= max(1,N). 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, and the factorization could not be completed.
