NAG Library Routine Document
F07JDF (DPTTRF) computes the modified Cholesky factorization of a real by symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix .
The routine may be called by its
F07JDF (DPTTRF) factorizes the matrix
is a unit lower bidiagonal matrix and
is a diagonal matrix with positive diagonal elements. The factorization may also be regarded as having the form
is a unit upper bidiagonal matrix.
- 1: N – INTEGERInput
On entry: , the order of the matrix .
- 2: D() – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
the dimension of the array D
must be at least
On entry: must contain the diagonal elements of the matrix .
On exit: is overwritten by the diagonal elements of the diagonal matrix from the factorization of .
- 3: E() – REAL (KIND=nag_wp) arrayInput/Output
the dimension of the array E
must be at least
On entry: must contain the subdiagonal elements of the matrix .
: is overwritten by the
subdiagonal elements of the lower bidiagonal matrix
can also be regarded as containing the
superdiagonal elements of the upper bidiagonal matrix
- 4: INFO – INTEGEROutput
unless the routine detects an error (see Section 6
6 Error Indicators and Warnings
Errors or warnings detected by the routine:
If , the th argument had an illegal value. An explanatory message is output, and execution of the program is terminated.
If , the leading minor of order is not positive definite. If , the factorization could not be completed, while if , the factorization was completed, but .
The computed factorization satisfies an equation of the form
is the machine precision
Following the use of this routine, F07JEF (DPTTRS)
can be used to solve systems of equations
, and F07JGF (DPTCON)
can be used to estimate the condition number of
The total number of floating point operations required to factorize the matrix is proportional to .
The complex analogue of this routine is F07JRF (ZPTTRF)
This example factorizes the symmetric positive definite tridiagonal matrix
