# NAG Toolbox: nag_lapack_zhpsv (f07pn)

## Purpose

nag_lapack_zhpsv (f07pn) computes the solution to a complex system of linear equations
 AX = B , $AX=B ,$
where A$A$ is an n$n$ by n$n$ Hermitian matrix stored in packed format and X$X$ and B$B$ are n$n$ by r$r$ matrices.

## Syntax

[ap, ipiv, b, info] = f07pn(uplo, ap, b, 'n', n, 'nrhs_p', nrhs_p)
[ap, ipiv, b, info] = nag_lapack_zhpsv(uplo, ap, b, 'n', n, 'nrhs_p', nrhs_p)

## Description

nag_lapack_zhpsv (f07pn) uses the diagonal pivoting method to factor A$A$ as A = UDUH$A=UD{U}^{\mathrm{H}}$ if uplo = 'U'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'U'}$ or A = LDLH$A=LD{L}^{\mathrm{H}}$ if uplo = 'L'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'L'}$, where U$U$ (or L$L$) is a product of permutation and unit upper (lower) triangular matrices, D$D$ is Hermitian and block diagonal with 1$1$ by 1$1$ and 2$2$ by 2$2$ diagonal blocks. The factored form of A$A$ is then used to solve the system of equations AX = B$AX=B$.

### Compulsory Input Parameters

1:     uplo – string (length ≥ 1)
If uplo = 'U'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'U'}$, the upper triangle of A$A$ is stored.
If uplo = 'L'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'L'}$, the lower triangle of A$A$ is stored.
Constraint: uplo = 'U'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'U'}$ or 'L'$\text{'L'}$.

2:     ipiv(n) – int64int32nag_int array

• if ipiv(i) = k > 0${\mathbf{ipiv}}\left(i\right)=k>0$, dii${d}_{ii}$ is a 1$1$ by 1$1$ pivot block and the i$i$th row and column of A$A$ were interchanged with the k$k$th row and column;
• if uplo = 'U'${\mathbf{uplo}}=\text{'U'}$ and ipiv(i1) = ipiv(i) = l < 0${\mathbf{ipiv}}\left(i-1\right)={\mathbf{ipiv}}\left(i\right)=-l<0$,  ( di − 1,i − 1 di,i − 1 ) di,i − 1 dii
$\left(\begin{array}{cc}{d}_{i-1,i-1}& {\stackrel{-}{d}}_{i,i-1}\\ {\stackrel{-}{d}}_{i,i-1}& {d}_{ii}\end{array}\right)$ is a 2$2$ by 2$2$ pivot block and the (i1)$\left(i-1\right)$th row and column of A$A$ were interchanged with the l$l$th row and column;

3:     b(ldb, : $:$) – complex array
The first dimension of the array b will be max (1,n)$\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$
The second dimension of the array will be max (1,nrhs)$\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{nrhs}}\right)$
Note: to solve the equations Ax = b$Ax=b$, where b$b$ is a single right-hand side, b may be supplied as a one-dimensional array with length ldb = max (1,n)$\mathit{ldb}=\mathrm{max}\phantom{\rule{0.125em}{0ex}}\left(1,{\mathbf{n}}\right)$.

If ${\mathbf{INFO}}={\mathbf{0}}$, the n$n$ by r$r$ solution matrix X$X$.
4:     info – int64int32nag_int scalar
info = 0${\mathbf{info}}=0$ unless the function detects an error (see Section [Error Indicators and Warnings]).

## Error Indicators and Warnings

Cases prefixed with W are classified as warnings and do not generate an error of type NAG:error_n. See nag_issue_warnings.

info = i${\mathbf{info}}=-i$
If info = i${\mathbf{info}}=-i$, parameter i$i$ had an illegal value on entry. The parameters are numbered as follows:
1: uplo, 2: n, 3: nrhs_p, 4: ap, 5: ipiv, 6: b, 7: ldb, 8: info.
It is possible that info refers to a parameter that is omitted from the MATLAB interface. This usually indicates that an error in one of the other input parameters has caused an incorrect value to be inferred.
W INFO > 0${\mathbf{INFO}}>0$
If info = i${\mathbf{info}}=i$, dii${d}_{ii}$ is exactly zero. The factorization has been completed, but the block diagonal matrix D$D$ is exactly singular, so the solution could not be computed.

## Accuracy

The computed solution for a single right-hand side, $\stackrel{^}{x}$, satisfies an equation of the form
 (A + E) x̂ = b , $(A+E) x^=b ,$
where
 ‖E‖1 = O(ε) ‖A‖1 $‖E‖1 = O(ε) ‖A‖1$
and ε $\epsilon$ is the machine precision. An approximate error bound for the computed solution is given by
 (‖x̂ − x‖1)/(‖x‖1) ≤ κ(A) (‖E‖1)/(‖A‖1) , $‖x^-x‖1 ‖x‖1 ≤ κ(A) ‖E‖1 ‖A‖1 ,$
where κ(A) = A11 A1 $\kappa \left(A\right)={‖{A}^{-1}‖}_{1}{‖A‖}_{1}$, the condition number of A $A$ with respect to the solution of the linear equations. See Section 4.4 of Anderson et al. (1999) and Chapter 11 of Higham (2002) for further details.
nag_lapack_zhpsvx (f07pp) is a comprehensive LAPACK driver that returns forward and backward error bounds and an estimate of the condition number. Alternatively, nag_linsys_complex_herm_packed_solve (f04cj) solves AX = B $AX=B$ and returns a forward error bound and condition estimate. nag_linsys_complex_herm_packed_solve (f04cj) calls nag_lapack_zhpsv (f07pn) to solve the equations.

The total number of floating point operations is approximately (4/3) n3 + 8n2r $\frac{4}{3}{n}^{3}+8{n}^{2}r$, where r $r$ is the number of right-hand sides.
The real analogue of this function is nag_lapack_dspsv (f07pa). The complex symmetric analogue of this function is nag_lapack_zspsv (f07qn).
